Starting with Version 1.0, all group landing pages will expand or contract, based on whether or not a Promo Item has been published in that group (see below).

With Promo Items & Without

If you have published at least one 'non-Right Sidebar' Promo Item (See Promo Items for more info), it will automatically appear on your group's home page and the Overview teaser and News & Events content will contract to make room for it in the central column.

If no 'non-Right Sidebar' Promo Item is published, the Overview teaser and News & Events content will expand to fill the central column of the home page.
