A layout is a predefined set of tabs and channels. The tabs and channels that you see in BengalWeb the first time you log on are defined by one or more layout fragments that have been targeted at you based upon attributes like your campus role, your major, etc. There may also be a number of optional layout fragments that you can subscribe to.

Layout fragments that appear automatically for you are called pushed. Optional layout fragments are subscribed. Like pushed layout fragments they are targeted at user groups based upon certain attributes, but these attributes are used to determine who can subscribe to the layout. For example, if you are a student you could subscribe to any layout fragments targeted at students.

To subscribe to a layout fragment, click on the "Content Layout" link found above the tabs in the upper left hand corner of BengalWeb. The Manage Content/Layout page appears.

Click the Fragments button that appears to the right of the Add Tab button.

You see the Content Selector, which lists all of the layout fragments that you are allowed to subscribe to. If there are no subscribable fragments available, you will see an indication of such.

From the Fragments tree menu, locate the fragment that you want to subscribe to. Click the Subscribe link next to its name. If you ever need to unsubscribe from a subscribed layout fragment, repeat the steps to access the Content Selector and click the "unsubscribe" link next to the layout fragment's name.

You are returned to the last tab that you were working on before you elected to subscribe to a layout. You should now see the tabs and channels that are defined by the subscribed layout fragment added to your personal layout.
