24/36 Paragraph intro style, for optional intro highlight type copy. Should only be a few lines long, and let the reader know what they’re about to get into.
Example paragraph text style. This is what your standard paragraphs will look like throughout the entire site. Certain areas may have special styles, but this is your standard copy size. Paragraph links are styled like this so that they are easy for users to find. You also have the ability to BOLD text as well as emphasize text. You can also insert links to download things in your content, ‘Example Document Title’ (PDF), like this.
Below this paragraph you’ll find examples of all the other styles you’ll have at your disposal. You also have a technical page that lists all important information on image sizes, fonts, and colors.
Header 2, Used for New Sections
You’ll notice there is a bit of extra space above the Header 2 above. This is done by putting in a line-break. This visual break can be nice when starting a new section of content. You’ll learn how to insert these in training, but you can see them in the HTML view as well. They’ll look like this: <br/>.
- This is a bulleted list.
- You can also do a numbered list (bullets will change to numbers).
- You can also create lists inside of a list.
- Just like this!
- We highly encourage the use of lists to make your content easier for the user to scan and digest quickly.
- Most users on the web are task-oriented, so the easier the better.
- Long paragraphs can be cumbersome and intimidating. Be sure to remember the medium, and don’t write copy the same way you would for print!
Header 3, Used for Smaller Sections or Sub-Sections
It’s important to also mention that this is just a reference page. We would never encourage you to use all of these styles on one page, all at once. Rather, this is your guide to all things possible. This page is your point of reference for all the tools in your tool-box.
Header 4 Style 24/30 (0 0 10)
Images can not only be attached using the sidebar feature on the right, but they can also be inserted into the center content area like the image to the right has been. You have the ability to align the image to the right or the left, or insert an image that is the full width of the content area, having no text on the left or right of it. Don’t forget to put a bit of padding on it, so the text doesn’t butt right up next to it.
You can also indent blocks of copy using the blockquote feature and they will look like this.
These interior styles are also available when creating content for other pages, like writing a blog post, a news article, etc. These same styles will apply to your headers and body copy. For the most part, the same can be said for any open content areas in the sidebar, home page, contact page, and so on.
Header 5 Style can be Great for Callouts
We hope you’ll come back to this page when you’re working on new content, or editing existing content.
Above me is an example HR. Besides the header 6 below, that’s our last example element. Thanks so much and happy creating!
