Section page types are used to create home pages or landing pages for a section of content and should mark the first landing spot for a content topic such as a department, program, college, audience, or organization.
How to use a section page
Section pages are navigational pages used to quickly and easily lead website users to various content topics on the website. A section page should display these blocks at minimum in this order:
1. Carousel Block
With 1-5 photos, 1440 w x 610 h
2. Section Block
With a short, one-sentence introduction to the content. This sentence should double as your meta data for the page.
3. Call to Action (CTA) Block
- Purple CTA blocks must have 4 links.
- Gold may have 3 or 4 links.
- If you choose to have 2 Call to Action Blocks, the first must be purple and the second must be gold.
4. Additional blocks as needed
Including Column Blocks with Editorial Blocks inside, Column Blocks with pages dragged inside, Side-by-Side Carousel Blocks, Section Blocks, and Instagram Blocks.
5. Navigation displayed at the bottom
This is a mobile-first design concept and allows the navigation to be easily accessed on mobile devices. The navigation auto-populates based on the organization of the pages under the section page.
Correct Section Page Layout
What Not to Do
Section pages should not be used to provide in-depth information. Standard pages should be used to provide detailed information, and section pages should feature calls-to-action that lead to the detailed content.
