What are site home Shortcuts? #

Shortcuts are part of the Titus theme, that when enabled are displayed on the site home page as the second available feature (typically sitting under the feature banner / slideshow). These can be enabled without the use of the feature banner / slideshow if desired. There are a number of settings you can change for these shortcuts and can choose up to 6 to be displayed (we recommend using 3 or 6).
