Landing pages list the main topics and provide users with a brief introduction or summary about the information they can expect to find. A Landing page tempalte is a smart way to group content pages that are all siblings and have no logical parent page. It allows you to group sibling pages without the need to create a parent page.
What is a Landing page?
Sometimes Landing pages are skipped entirely. Reasons for this include:
- if they do not have grandchild pages, or
- if your level 4 page contains more than a paragraph or two of content, then it's best to go straight to a content page.
For example: A user clicks on the 'Roles at education' link and is taken to the following page:
- This lets the user know what they'll find in the content that follows.
- This is limited to 150 characters.
Child page list
- Here we list all child pages of the landing page for easy access.
- These are automatically generated based on the content structure.
- A Landing page tempalte must only be used as a direct child of a Section Template.
- Don't add content below the link listing. The Landing page is a 'navigator' page directing the user to the information they require. It's best to keep these pages simple.
