You need to work out if your content management system or web-page editor has all the components you need to use the “What to do” content pattern. Talk to someone who posts new articles or makes new pages regularly to find out about it.
All systems should have most of the things you need already available:
Header 1, 2 and 3 (title, subheadings first level, subheadings second level)
Body text (for sentences and paragraphs)
Bullet points (to make lists)
Link function (to add links to the end of the article)
Things you need to check:
Do you have an Anchor link menu or table of contents option? Turn this on. It will make all the header 2's on the page into anchor links and create a styled table of them as links. It will appear at the top of the page or in a sidebar depending on your website design.
Do you have a box, usually known as a “call out box”? This allows you to create examples with a different background or width to the main flow of text. If you do have one, is it subtle enough to work for examples without interrupting the flow too much?
If you don’t have these you may be able to use workarounds or hacks that achieve a similar effect. If you are improving your information pages as part of a wider website project you could add new templates or components.
NCVO use Wagtail CMS now. When they first started using this content pattern they were using a CMS called Plone. They needed developer support to create a call out box that worked for examples. The first attempts were too bright, and interrupted the flow of text too much.
They also worked with their Wagtail developer to add styling to their anchor menu. Each item has a down arrow instead of a bullet point, to make it clear that you can skip down the page.
