The following ‘Promo Slots’ are available to refresh the Home Page

The idea behind the ~Promos Page is this: one way to keep your home page ‘fresh’ so that people re-visit is to have continually changing content. But, Foundations don’t typically have a ton of activity. One solution is to pre-develop some standard promotions you can keep in ‘inventory’ (below), then simply copy into the home page in a pre-defined ‘promo’ slot.
