Add an introduction banner

A step-by-step guide to adding an introduction banner to a landing page.

This is an example of an introduction banner.

Adding an example of the introduction banner to this page that explains what it is and how to use it. 

The introduction banner component can be used to add written content and journey links under the page title and introduction section. It is only available for the Landing page template.

The banner spans the full width of the browser and has a title (maximum 150 characters), summary text and optional featured links or buttons.

The introduction banner is designed to highlight or promote important and relevant information. It should not include any information or links already included elsewhere on the page. It should only be used when you need to add this information to one page. If you want to promote or highlight something across multiple pages or include an image with this information, use the primary or secondary campaign component instead.

An introduction banner can have up to 3 featured links or 2 buttons. Featured links and buttons should help people perform key tasks. They should not replicate navigation items that exist somewhere else on the page. Featured link text should be no more than 10 words. Button labels should be no more than 3 words and accurately describe what will happen nextExternal Link .

You can also choose to add an exclamation mark icon next to the banner title. It's not possible to customise this icon or the background colour of the introduction banner.
