Catalogue guidelines

You can use a catalogue to help users browse and select product offerings, or to creatively display a selection of content pages in specific categories.

As a content editor or approver, you must request a catalogue template from the web support team.

Once the catalogue is set up, you're free to add categories and pages as you need to.

Page guidelines

Do

  • Keep link titles to no more than 60 characters including spaces.
  • If you use images, make sure they are 1155x770 pixels so they display properly on the catalogue index. See also image guidelines.
  • Follow the content style guide for consistency.

Don't

  • Don't use a lead paragraph on these pages. Instead, the text in your content container will automatically display at the top of the page in lead style.
  • Don't include any child pages under a catalogue that don't belong to that catalogue.
