Page Content

Make your content work for you

  • Page content formatting is the most versatile and commonly used content-type on ufv.ca.
  • What is content? All the information within a website is considered content.
  • For versatilty, content is added in blocks of related information so the blocks can be copied, moved, mirrored, archived etc.
  • You can display your content in multiple ways such as using text and formatting, links, images, videos, etc.
  • Content created outside of the T4 system (i.e. images, PDFs, videos) have to be individually uploaded into the T4 Media Library and then added into your content.
  • Using proper formatting will allow your website to be more accessible to search engines and your marketing audience.

Using preformatted heading tags

  • The name you give to your section when it is created automatically becomes your page's main title in an H1 header format.
  • For this reason do not use the H1 header in your content as it can only be used once as the main title.
  • H2 header format and H3 header format are recommended for the main headings within your content.
  • To identify the style applied to your content, click on the content and check the 'Path' displayed at the bottom left of the content window.

Ponder your navigation before you publish

  •     Does the page title match the button/link clicked to get there?
  •     Is the wording consistent with other pages, and consistent with the site navigation?
  •     Are the options in the menu clearly defined? (Make sure there is no overlap between possible choices, as this will confuse your visitors)
  •     Are menus or sets of links/options presented in meaningful ways? For example: by steps in a task, by date, alphabetically, or by category?
  •     Is the same type of content consistently in the same areas, on every page?
  •     Is there one primary call-to-action on each page?
  •     Does the user have clear options for what to do next, once they have reached the end of the page?
  •     Is this content easy for a Mobile user to navigate and read?
