Pages in a hierarchical menu. Pages can store the main introductory and informational content of a site (front-loaded information).
Hierarchies should be kept flat - do not bury content in level 4 subpages, or deeper! Instead, transfer content to fact sheets, manuals and guidance materials, then add them to your resource library. You can add links to resources on the high-level pages.
Promoting a link to content (on your site or another site). Promotions are used as short promotional content teasers.
Promotional tiles can be added to the homepage.
Information and updates which will be published frequently and become less relevant over time. If content is relevant over a longer period of time, it should be a resource in the resource library.
News items are displayed on the news landing page, in the news archive, and in ‘Latest news’ on the homepage.
Information that users can refer to over time. Everything that your users need to know in detail should be a resource, e.g. fact sheets, manuals and guidance materials.
Resources are displayed on the resources landing page and in ‘Latest resources’ on the homepage.
