Although commonly found on the Home page, this pattern can be used on any page. Several of our themes feature a full hero section on the Home page, with smaller versions carried through to Category, Section and/or Article pages.
A standard hero section contains little more than a search bar, as seen in Zendesk’s default Copenhagen theme.
The background image is applied using the
.bg-home utility, which references the Home page hero image theme setting.
But you can include any other content. For example, a heading that serves to greet visitors is a used on many of our themes.
You can also combine them with other patterns, for example article lists to present promoted content or common search terms.
