A Location Detail page allows you to provide additional information that doesn’t fit on a Location page, or specialized or supplemental info about that Location.
Examples of uses for this content type include:
Detailed information about hiking trails
Jury duty information about a specific courthouse
Historical or relevant information about a park or location
The title and short description are the first things your audience sees. In fact, they might see them before they get to the page: If they’re coming from Google, the title is what will draw them to the page. It’s important that these are easy to read and use plain language.
You’ll find the Organization(s) field at the bottom of the first tab in every Mass.gov content type, and in documents. This field tells Mass.gov’s search which pages belong to which organization.
This field also powers the "Offered by" relationship indicator (the small green rectangle(s) in the upper left corner) on each Mass.gov page. Making sure yours is right will help users who land on your content find their way to your Organization Page.
Choose the audience this content is intended for. This information will help measure how well these audiences are being served and won't be displayed on the public-facing site. This is currently only for internal use. Choose from:
Not Set (default)
Professional (For their jobs)
In the Sections tab, you’ll see options for adding a section, an iFrame, or a video:
Sections are mainly for written and image content. Each section on a Location Detail page includes a title, an optional content area, and Additional Resources, which can include links and downloads. You can reorder your sections by using the crosshairs in the upper left of each section to drag and drop them into a different order.
An iFrame is a page-inside-a-page. You can think of it like the picture-in-picture option on your television: one source is “piped in” to another source. For example, MassWildlife uses an iFrame to show a report on where they’ve stocked trout, and where they’ll stock soon:
To add an iFrame to a Location Detail, you’ll need a URL from the source you want to embed in the page. This URL must be from a source that Mass.gov supports and is compatible with, such as Google docs or YouTube. Here’s a list of domains that you can use (must be logged in to view).
Click “Add iFrame”
Add your iFrame’s URL to URL.
In the Administrative Title, say what your iFrame shows. This will only be visible to other authors.
You also need to enter text in Title for Accessibility. To do this, imagine what a user who experiences the internet through text read aloud would need to understand what the iFrame shows. Learn more about iFrames and accessibility.
Enter a Height. Often, you will need to save a draft, review it, and adjust the height. Trial-and-error is the best method for picking the right height.
If you have questions about iFrames, please submit a support request through ServiceNow.
You can also add videos that are hosted on YouTube or Vimeo to your Location Detail.
