How to publish content on - Vic Gov digital guide

This is a 'how to' guide for the website CMS. Content editors can learn how to add, edit and manage content and learn our rules and guidelines for content on

Content principles

Content on is:

  • focussed on how the user will best receive the government's message
  • always a collaboration and digital presentation is considered from the start
  • never finished unless it’s retired
  • always has an owner with expertise and time to look after it and evaluate its success
  • published quickly as long as the digital equivalent is provided

Talk to us early if you’re thinking about new content

Check with the Digital, Design and Innovation branch at least 2 weeks before developing or outsourcing new web content (including logos, images and social media tiles).
