    Translation from New Tiles to Old Tiles

    The major change to the custom layout is that it is an exact replica of the standard layout. This makes it easier to design the standard layout with CSS, move to a custom layout, and then add additional or customized tiles.
    Specific changes to the standard layout are described in the following section.

    Home Page

    The Home Page layout is now more complicated but you will see that the header and search-related tiles are identical between the three pages. The fact that it is more complicated gives you more control in terms of customization and playing with the layout.

    Note the placement of the static HTMLs. This structure is primarily used for the out of the box Static HTMLs. You can freely modify the structure of anything in #exlidHomeContainer.

    Brief Display

    Whereas in Version 2, the Full Record page was the most complicated layout, the Brief Display page has taken the lead in Version 3.
    The most significant design change is the placement of the Facets tile. Although it appears visually on the left in the new layout, it still loads after the results, which results in a significant difference in how fast the search feels. This is especially true when large numbers of Facets are presented.

    Full Display

    The Full Display page is now simpler and its overall layout is in line with the Home Page.
