Guidelines and Best Practices

  • Number of Links: There are no set limits to the number of links you can add to this section. However, be mindful of the user experience. It is unlikely that a well organized list would include more than five to ten links. If your list has more than ten links, step back and consider if there is a way to break your original list down into several lists with a descriptive headline that helps users quickly find what they are seeking.
  • Reordering List items: Use the arrow cross on the left of each list item to drag and reorder your list items.
  • Use this section when you have a large list of links that can be grouped by category.
  • The section can be used once on a page when you just have a group of links to share or it can be repeated several times on a page to group tons of links into categories.
