ns-article is used to display long-form content

Note: This component is currently being considered for deprecation.

ns-article has been designed to be used to house content for a variety of long-form content such as blogs, editorials and support articles. Each use of the ns-article should be split into easy to consume chapters or sections.

Content Guidance#

Article - Content Guidance

KeyField typeGuidelines
AHeadingThe recommended length is between 4 and 12 words, not exceeding 50 characters in total.

Images can have an aspect ratio of 16:9 or 4:3, their file type should be jpg, and the file size should be no more than 100kb. Don't use imagery with white backgrounds.
CCaptionShort contextual description of the video or image content.

Divide content into short paragraphs as it is easier to consume, and aids effective page scanning. Content can contain bold copy <b> <strong>, inline links <a>, lists <ul> <ol>, and a caveat at the end of the relevant paragraph if required <a href="#caveat">1</a>.
