Modify Studio home page

RH 2020.7.46, Frameless preset, customized Studio skin 

We are trying to design a custom home page for our help site. In an earlier post, I asked about removing the tiles and displaying our own content instead while preserving the top section of the home page, and I got some excellent advice from this community (for which, thank you 🙂 ).

 

Now I'm asking for suggestions about another idea that's been floated. The general idea is to have a home page of tiles, where each tile would have a small image of our choosing, the title of a top-level section, and some hyperlinks to the most frequently used topics in that section. The goal would be to use as much of the framework of the Studio home page as possible but add more content to it. 

 

My understanding is that we can use our own images and change the size of the tiles. And if we enable the "Tile Description" option, the description for each top-level topic will be included in the tile below the title. So my question is: Can the topic description include hyperlinks? And if not, is there a way to get hyperlinks into those tiles?

 

Thanks for any ideas or guidance---I'm not a designer but have access to one (who is not familiar with RoboHelp at all, unfortunately).

The whole tile area is itself a hyperlink so I would doubt it is possible.

Yes I just figured that out 🙂 [that the whole tile functions as a single hyperlink, no matter how many of the possible elements it includes]. I tried entering a hyperlink in the description but it was interpreted as plain text. 

The reason we would be trying to work with the skin home page would be to make sure our custom home page is still responsive, as well as ADA-compliant [which means we can't use a table to achieve our design].
