Long content page guidelines

Long content pages are best for lengthy, complex content such as guidelines, manuals and large amounts of related content.

As a content editor or approver, you must request the long content page template from the web support team. There must be no child pages underneath your long content page.

On this page

  • The left-hand navigation index is generated automatically from heading 2s (H2s) and heading 3s (H3s).
  • In mobile view, this becomes a drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Page guidelines

Do

  • Keep headings to no more than 60 characters including spaces or the left-hand index will appear too crowded.
  • Keep the content simple. Avoid using overly complex tables, tabs or show/hides.
  • Follow the content style guide for consistency.

Don't

  • Don't use a lead paragraph on these pages. Instead, your page description will automatically display at the top of the page.
  • Don't use the long content page template on any pages that have children. Your user won't be able to navigate to them.
  • Don't use this template for content with fewer than 5 level 2 headings. The standard content page is better suited for those.
