The last version of Internet Explorer, version 11, was released on October 17, 2013. This is a very long time ago when taking into account the rapid development of web technologies. These days it is often difficult and time consuming to get modern technologies to work well in this old browser. More and more frameworks are dropping support, and even Microsoft themselves has announced that they will fully drop support for IE in their own services in 2021.
Consequently, we have decided to not include support for IE in the Design Library website.
A block to highlight and show the most important or prioritised message for a start or landing page.
The ‘Welcome block’ is supposed to show the most important message or conversion of the page. Prioritising is therefore very important; only one such block can be used per page.
An example would be to use it to highlight a new mortgage campaign on the start page. But it could also be used on a landing page to highlight a new article that could be of importance for the visitors.
Remember that the block will set the tone for the rest of the page, make sure it is welcoming.
Only place on top of a start or landing page. Consider if a ‘Promo block’ might be good enough for your use-case - we do not want to overuse the ‘Welcome’ block. The block also has an option to show some shortcuts underneath it. These should be used to direct visitors to important sub-pages of the same theme/context.
The ‘Welcome’ blocks mainarea has one interactive component, either a link or button that can be used in connection with the text field. This is usually to promote an action or conversion, but could be used to guide the user to important or interesting information. You can add a contrast box behind the heading/text/button area if the image that is being used is of a light tone and thus the contrast between text and image low.
