- Promotion card - link to programs, services or events

Technically you can copy in an alpha.vic.gov.au link into the non-automated cards, but we don't recommend it. If there is any change in the page title or if the page is deleted, your link will break. Using automated links for pages in alpha.vic.gov.au helps keep the site up to date.
Below you'll find instructions for adding and using these components.
