The About Page includes a variety of cloud services information important for the user to know, ranging from legal notices to release information.
About Page information is read-only content that is typically presented as a modal page, as opposed to a modal dialog. This makes it less likely the user will resize a dialog in order to more conveniently see content, or find and use a dialog scroll bar rather than the browser scroll bar on a mobile device.
The following image presents an example About Page.
About Page categories may be segmented in several ways:
- As navigation links, tabs, or finger tabs
- As headers
- As a combination of navigation controls and headers.
The following image is a example About Page with categories segmented by navigation controls.
In the Oracle Alta UI, the About Page is presented as a User Menu item. Links used in a page footer may also point to the About Page.
See the Footer pattern for details about when a copyright notice must appear in a footer rather than in the About Page. See the Additional Resources section for the required syntax of a copyright notice.
In the About Page the user is returned to the calling page by clicking the Done button. In this sense, the About Page operates like a dialog.
The following image shows the call and return, linear navigation path of an About Page launched from the User Menu.
