HelpHub Category Pages
The list will allow topics to show on one page (max two pages, if needed) making it easier to find the article needed by the user

The links are underlined in the title only, instead of having to highlight the entire paragraph, as seen in the “before” image
There will be no weird grid when the number of topics is not a multiple of three
