    Thank you very much for this snippet. May I ask you how you would split the content into two columns?

    Thanks a lot,

    A big thanks to you, Vladan! I've been trying to do this and learn HTML5 at the same time by looking things up on the web. Should have known to start with Zendesk Support articles first, you guys are great!

    Hi Matthew, Welcome to the Community!

    Just to check are you on Copenhagen theme? Could you share a screenshot of what you got there?

    Is there a way to split it into 2 columns?

    Hi Edul! Yes, that is possible.
    Open CSS file of your Help Center theme (Guide admin / Themes / Select active theme / Edit code),
    and find this value (should be the 812th line in this ZD default Copenhagen theme):

    flex1 0 340px;

    Just make a little change so it looks on this way:

    flex: 1 0 420px;


    That should be all. If it doesn't work, please provide me here with a link to your help center.
    Thanks!

    Hi Vladan - Thanks for the info!

    Do you happen to know a way to have the "View all XX articles" expand on the homepage, rather than click thru to the category page?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Caroline, Yes that is doable and requires much more coding.

    If you have a front-end developer in your team just direct him to the Zendesk API documentation, a part which applies to the listing of all articles within a section: https://developer.zendesk.com/rest_api/docs/help_center/articles#list-articles

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for sharing this Vladan! One minor detail: I had to wrap {{#each sections}} with <div class="section-tree"> to get everything working perfectly. It fixed a bunch of margins and made the whole thing show up with two columns without even tweaking the CSS code. 

    <div class="section-tree">
    {{#each sections}}

    [...] code removed for readability [...]

    {{/each}}
    </div>
