Usage #

  • Navigation, search, username, and “log out” link are optional. Only the base header with the IU trident and site title are required.
  • Navigation must appear first. The primary navigation must appear before the search button, username, and “log out” link. See the code examples on this page for guidance.
  • Adjust the header width to match the width of your site’s content. The header shown in the code examples on this page uses the .rvt-container-xl class. You can use a different container width class to make you header’s content narrower to match the width of your page’s content.
  • Top-level navigation links must appear in the primary navigation. Don’t use secondary navigation for your site’s primary navigation links.
  • Use only one secondary navigation. Don’t stack multiple secondary navigation elements on top of one another in your site’s header.

Do

  • Use a header on every page of your website or web application
  • Use to present primary site navigation, secondary navigation, and search
  • Keep navigation labels brief
  • Keep the header consistent between pages

Don't

  • Alter the IU trident logo
  • Use secondary navigation as your site's primary navigation
  • Use more than one secondary navigation at the same time
  • Use different primary navigation links on different pages
  • Add a third subtitle next to the trident logo
  • Nest secondary navigation links more than four levels deep

Accessibility #

  • The header must contain a “Skip to main content” link. The first element inside the header must be a skip link with the .rvt-header-wrapper__skip-link class. This link must direct users to your page’s main element that has an ID of #main-content. See the code examples on this page for guidance. (Layouts have these skip links already set up.)
  • The header contains disclosure and dropdown components. See the disclosure and dropdown documentation for additional accessibility information.

JavaScript #

  • The header contains disclosure and dropdown components. To control these elements of the header using JavaScript, see the documentation for disclosures and dropdowns.
