Service Detail Page Content Page

The Service Detail template serves as a landing page for an individual service within an agency. This page can provide residents with information about a specific service such as how to apply, who is eligible, FAQs, and more.

 

Service Detail pages are located within the Services section of PA.gov, in each agency’s Services folder. On the live site, residents will see services grouped by topic, rather than by agency (ex. all services relating to licenses + certifications will be grouped together, to ease the search experience). Each agency owns their Service Detail pages for the services they provide.

 

Authors should use Agency Content Pages for any non-Services content.

Other Tips

1. The Service Detail page uses a two-column layout on desktop. On tablet/mobile, it truncates to one column.

2. Use Column Control to add a third column to the page on desktop. This is helpful if there are elements that should appear alongside others, such as required documents, important dates, or reminders.

a. Teasers or Text components may be the best options for the third column, as it is narrower than the main column.

3. The last parsys on the page (above the Footer) is full width, and includes a smaller subset of components to drag and drop. This can be used by authors to build the "Related Services and Information" full width section as seen in the example below. It is optional for authors to use this parsys.

a. This section is recommended to provide agency branding to the page.
