Using Headings

Headings Overview

Heading are used as titles for every page. The bigger the number after the heading, the smaller it is. Meaning Heading 1, the Page Title, is the biggest. 

When selecting heading levels, ensure that they are in outline order. This will help the semantic structure of your page and assist those using non-visual devices. For example, a Heading Four should only be a child of a Heading Three not of Heading Two.

Make sure you are in the Content tab, Edit view option, and Page tab

Open the "Format" (sometime's called "Normal") dropdown menu to see heading options:

Headings can improve search engine optimization (SEO) if used correctly. When creating paragraph headings, try to incorporate key terms as much as you can. Search engine crawlers inspect all headings to find relevant information for the match.

Remember to always save and Preview when working with headings since the color, font style, and font size changes between Edit and Preview mode.

Heading 5

Normal

This allows you to type in the standard font of the whole website. This font being used now is "Normal."

Heading 2

The biggest heading possible. There is usually 1 or 2 titles that use heading 2 on a page. On this page, "Headings Overview" is the H2 title.

Heading 3

The second biggest heading used for main categories of the page. All but one of the headings on this page are using H3 since they're the main sub sections of the page.

Heading 4

Heading 4

Great for clarifying sections within a sub-section of the page. For example, if one of the subsections is about "Kentico Training" using a heading 3, then the heading 4 could be "Additional training opportunities" since it's a specific sub-category. 

Heading 5

Heading 5

The smallest heading possible without going to normal but it is relatively the same size as normal font. Great alternative to bolding certain words since headings are more effective with SEO.

Address

This is used for typing addresses, save and preview to ensure satisfaction with how the font appears.
