Beyond the standard features of ArcGIS Online, there are some advanced capabilities to customize the look-and-feel of your portal home page. Using CSS instructions, you can redefine some of the Esri default styles in order to get a more attractive page to welcome the users of you portal. Here is an example: http://demoagol1.maps.arcgis.com

If needed, I can provide the CSS source I used for this demo.

Hi

I would be very thankful if you could as you say provide me with the CSS you used. I have asked a question on the ArcGIS Online Developers space on cycling images on the home page based upon user and this approach may be the answer

Thank you,

Christopher

Hi Christopher,

I  uploaded here the CSS file that I used to customize this home page. You can test it by copying/pasting these instructions into the HTML code area of the "Banner" section. Hope it could help...

This is great and has inspired me to make our home page better.  In order to unpack this so I understand how to implement it, could you (or someone who has done this) provide a little more detail about what is in the "banner" and the "organization description" sections of the site settings?   I'm trying to understand the relationships.

Thanks,

Mary Ellen

P.S.  If anyone has other sites that I can use as examples I would be very appreciative.

Mary,

ESRI has a GitHub site dedicated to ArcGIS Online Administration.  There's a section on Home Page Tweaks which includes a lot of information on how to make changes and where those changes occur. 

Here's a link to our organization which incorporates some of these optimizations.

Would you be able to share your code with me for the design of your homepage?

Thank you Gaëtan! Really helpful!

I've implemented this in an Esri Sweden demo-portal: http://kommun.maps.arcgis.com/home/index.html and mentioned your work in a related blog post: Skapa en anpassad startsida till din organisationsportal | GIS-Bloggen

My customizations to the CSS and HTML are available to download here: http://kommun.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=3e0e4121bcf140a79eed193d101dbaf1

This doesn't seem to be working in IE, but works great in Chrome. Do you have any suggestions?

Fixed by removing the check by "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View" under Compatibility View Settings. That's easy for me. Now I'll need to get that deployed across my whole org.
