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.
Example of a long content page:
See this page in action on education.nsw. Go to our Content style guide 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.
- When you create your pages, keep in mind the various components you can use to display content in more meaningful ways. These include:
- 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 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.
