Content Page Layouts


Content pages should be clear and concise. Focus on the informaton that your readers are looking for leave out the rest. There are three types of content pages that you can use on your website.

Content1 

Content 1 Layout

The Content 1 layout has three columns; a left column for navigation and calls-to-action, a center column for your primary content, and a right column for information related to your primary content. Because the page is divided into three columns, putting large amounts of text in the layout can make the page very long. This layout should be used for pages that have a limited amount of primary content and related content.

Content2 

Content 2 Layout

The Content 2 layout has two columns; a left column for navigation and calls-to-action, and a main column for your primary content. This layout probably the most flexible and can contain large or small amounts of content.

Tabs 

Tabs Layout

The Tabs layout has a main content area at the top, which should contain no more than a couple of paragraphs, and a tabs area below. The tabs area allows for five different tab sections. The content in the tab sections should be related, and content should be minimal. With too much content in a tab, it becomes difficult for the user to switch between them. If you have a lot of content for each tab section, it may be better to create seperate pages for each instead.
