Creating a Landing Page in Typecase

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

Only Typecase Admins can create Landing pages.

If you think your organisation needs a Landing page, read this guide first to help you decide.

The purpose of a Landing page

A Landing page should be used to collate multiple pages about a University faculty, department or group.

To pin pages to a Landing page, they must all be owned by the same Owning organisation in Typecase. To collate pages from more than one Owning organisation, use a Topic page.

The organisation that owns the page is responsible for keeping the information up to date.


Landing pages are made up of rows of Pinned items components.

Each Pinned item component has up to six pages linked from it, showing the page's Title, Summary and an optional image. These pages are called Pinned items.

You can also add up to four Split sections to a Landing page. This is where you can add free text, images, and multimedia to explain the faculty, department or group's work.
