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.
Example of a catalogue page:
See this page in action on education.nsw. Go to the Standard devices for schools page.
- The introduction automatically appears at the top of the page. You're limited to 300 characters including spaces, and no HTML code.
- The category list on the left-hand side automatically populates based on the folders you've put your pages into.
- You must have at least two categories to use a catalogue pattern.
- You can put items into more than one category.
- The user can choose to arrange the catalogue listings by title or by price, if applicable.
- The user can toggle between grid view and list view as they wish.
- The user can find specific items using the keyword search.
- The page description text will automatically display. You're limited to 150 characters including spaces, and no HTML code.
- 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 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.
