Jump to main content


Links are used to embed actions or pathways to more information, allowing users to click their way from page to page.


Default links are a color defined by $color-link and are 10% darker when already visited.


The .p-link--soft class should be used on hyperlinks where many links are grouped together, such as a link cloud.


The .p-link--inverted class should be used where links are placed on a dark background.

Back to top

The .p-top link can be used to make it easier to go back to the top on long pages. If the page is divided into different sections, you can use more than one per page.

The .p-link--skip link is used to help keyboard users navigate quickly to the main content of a page. It should be the first element that can be tabbed to on any page, and should reference either the <main> landmark region element, or the ID of an element that contains the main content of the page.
