# Home Template

Galerie offers two ways to present the first section of the home page: Featured Articles Slider and Hero Section.

Home slider

The first section of the home page is displayed this way by default. The first slide shows the title and description of the publication as well as the cover image.

If you mark some articles as featured they will appear individually on the following slides, the slider will show up to 5 featured articles.

If you wish to change the featured articles limit follow these steps:

  1. Unzip the theme folder.

  2. Open the file partials/home-slider.hbs with a text/code editor and look for the following line of code:

limit="5" as |featured|
  1. Replace the number 5 with the number yo prefer and save your changes.

  2. Zip the theme folder and upload it again.

If you decided to use the Hero Section instead of the Slider and now you want to return it to the way it was, you must do the following:

  1. Unzip the theme folder.

  2. Open the file index.hbs with a text/code editor and look for the following line of code:

{{> home-hero}}
  1. Replace that line with the following code:
{{> home-slider}}
  1. Save your changes.

  2. Zip the theme folder and upload it again.
