Sample unit landing page

Our website allows you to create beautiful landing pages with no knowledge of HTML or programming necessary. For example, the main CSE landing page. You have a choice of multiple building blocks (called widgets) that are highly customizable and can be placed in any order and combination of your choice.

A landing page differs from an advanced page in that it requires a banner to be placed at the top of the page.
