Hero

This section examines the Hero block with its different layouts.

The "Hero" area is a large area at the top of the page (usually full width) that is supposed to give the user a general idea of what the website is about. If you are offering a certain product, the Hero are is usually the place where you put the value proposition of your product, summarizing what problems the product solves, what value it delivers to its customers, how it differentiates itself as the preferred provider of this value, and so on.

Hero areas often contain images, videos, dynamic text, etc. Softr offers a variety of layouts for the Hero block to choose from. In this section, we'll review all the layouts to give you a better understanding of how they can be configured and applied.

First, let's examine the features that all or most of the layouts have in common. Afterwards, we'll investigate the specifics of each layout one by one.
