Add Hero to homepage

Now that we have a view mode display ready to go, let create a new node of type Homepage so we can add the hero of our choice.

Exercise: Create the homepage node with a hero

  1. From Drupal's admin toolbar, click Content | Add content

  2. Select **Homepage **as the type of content to create

  3. Under title type Homepage

  4. In the Hero field, begin typing to search for the article you wish to turn into the Hero

  5. When the targeted article is found, select it and click the **Save **button

  6. The homepage node will now rendered and we should see a large image and a title

The Hero is now displaying in Drupal using the designated view mode display. We will handle the styles of the hero in a later exercise.
