This Video Guide is divided into three parts as follows: Mark Foster, Affino’s Head of Design and Build will will show you how quickly and elegantly you can create and evolve your own Coronavirus Information Hub, or indeed any Topic Hub style pages. He has split the tutorial into 3 videos:

  • Build a Hub Landing Page on Affino (40:37 mins)
  • Build a Hub Listing Page (11:44 mins)
  • Build a Hub Support Forum (18:47 mins)

We recommend viewing the videos at Full Screen, and you’ll likely want to keep the pause button handy as you work through the setup process.


Build a Hub Landing Page on Affino (40:37 mins)

This shows you the mechanics of building up the main hub landing page - adding in, styling and tweaking each of the Design Objects and Design Elements and Skins in real time. Note that Mark has already prepared some of the elements prior to the video and each is referred to as it is introduced.

Mark demonstrates how to quickly build up the individual content rows, and how to judicially apply just the settings that you need.


Build a Hub Listing Page (11:44 mins)

The follow-up segment is on delivering the Content Display Skin, how you further refine the customer experience, and the different ways you can make use of Topic filtering on the Channel level and individual Design Object Elements - to ensure you deliver the best user experience for the hub audience.


Build a Hub Support Forum (18:47 mins)

Here Mark guides you through the creation of an 'Ask the Expert' Collaboration Forum' - in a very similar way to TTG Media's 'Business Support Forum'. The tutorial covers copying one of the existing Skins, and establishing a Collaboration Forum Content Channel - and combining that with an 'Experts' Contacts Listing Design Element.

All of these guides show you how quickly and easily you can adapt existing design frameworks with the minimum of fuss - to get something powerful and elegant up in the least amount of time.

If yo have any questions as you are working through setting up your own Covid-19 or indeed any topic hub, you can post in the comments below, or better yet to the Forums.
