Creating a Corporate information page in Typecase

How to create a Corporate information page on the University website. Part of the Typecase manual.

The purpose of Corporate information

Use the Corporate information content type to:

  • publish facts about the University, like semester dates and Research Excellence Framework (REF) or league table results
  • explain rules and regulations and how they might affect people
  • explain the scope of a group or committee's activity or area of knowledge
  • publish an official statement supporting an area of the University Strategy
  • publish the transcript of a speech or an oration
  • publish official University correspondence that needs to be widely accessible
  • publish information that forms part of the University's Annual accounts
  • share price lists for University services, like the cost of hiring rooms in The Edge
  • share the timetable for an event or series of events, like student induction

Don't use the Corporate information content type:

  • to publish University codes of practice, policies, procedures, regulations, and terms and conditions - use the Legal information content type for these
  • when the information is long and would be better read as a document - you should create a Publication
  • when the information is a guide to a policy, procedure, strategy, and so on - you should create a Guide
  • to list all information about an event – you should create an Event page

Corporate information pages have a consistent visual simplicity and are structured around a large-capacity Main content component.

Before making a Corporate information page, look at some examples to help you decide how to use it.

Examples of Corporate information


You must make sure your content is accessible.

As a public sector body, we're legally required to make the content on our website as accessible as possible. The government checks our content to make sure it complies with the internationally recognised guidelines from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Find out more about accessibility or contact if you have any questions.

Creating content


Choose the subtype which best describes your Corporate information. Typecase uses this to categorise your page, meaning it will be easier for users to find through filtered lists.

The subtype you choose will also be displayed as a label below the page title.

Core components

The Corporate information must have a User need, Title, Summary, Navigation and Owning organisation or group. Read more about these in our Core components guide.


You can choose to add multiple Labels to your Corporate information page.


You can choose to add a pinned image to your Corporate information:

Additional images can be added to the Main content component using Markdown.

Top of page fixed-position components

You can choose to add a Focus component across the top of your page.

Main content

The Main content component is unique to the Corporate information and Legal information Content types.

Its 50,000-character capacity is the largest of any single component in Typecase. Using the correct heading hierarchy to structure your content with accessibility in mind is essential.

Structuring your content with headings will make the information easier to navigate for sighted users and those using screen-reading software. The H1 and H2 headings you use will automatically become links in the page's floating in-page navigation menu. This menu enables your users to navigate to specific sections of a page from any point within it.

Use Markdown to insert lists, tables, links and images in your content.

Bottom of page components

You can choose to add the following components to the bottom of the page:
