When?

You should use a Hub to signpost to associated pages within a section of your website.

Why?

By designing your website around sections that relate to the information you’re providing (eg Undergraduate, Postgraduate, Research etc), it improves the overall user journey for our visitors. 

Without Hub pages, all of your content would live under the top level of your website. Hub pages are key to formatting the URLs of your pages, making them clearer not only to visitors, but also to search engines.

As with the Home Content type, Hub pages should be constructed using rows of signposting boxes, videos, teaser cards and more.

Don't be tempted to put text boxes with paragraphs of text on a Hub page. It's better to use a Basic page for longer blocks of text.

How?

When creating a page, choose the Hub Content type. Then assemble the page using the components below.

This is the text at the top of the page. Try to use a clear description that summarises the hub content.
