Information about creating and maintaining a “People” page on your website (faculty/staff page).

Create a Faculty/Staff Page

The “People” (faculty/staff) page generates a visual list of all the individual People profiles present in the People section of the Dashboard. To create a new People page:

    1. Click “+ New” from the Dashboard in the Pages section
    2. Add a title to the page
    3. In the “Page Attributes” box of the new page, select “People Page” from the list of Templates
      Red box around "People Page" option in the Page Attributes block
    4. The People Page content block allows you to select a sort order for the various categories of people (e.g., staff, faculty). Be sure to add all categories to ensure that all people are listed on the page.
    5. To include text or other content before or after the list of people, click [Add Row] in either the Pre-Content Callouts block (content displayed before people list) or In-Content Callouts block (content displayed after the people list). Pre-Content Callout is a Content (text) box and In-Content Callout can include any of the standard In-Content Callouts available on the site.
    6. Publish the page and add to your site menu where appropriate

 

To Add a Faculty or Staff Member

Choose Add New from the drop down menu in the People sidebar item of the Dashboard.

Add new people

This will open a new people page. Follow the steps below to add another faculty or staff member.
Choosing the profile type

  1. Enter the name of the faculty or staff member.
  2. Enter the number of the sort order. This determines where on the page the entry appears. If all entries are in alphabetical order, you must number them accordingly.
  3. Pick a profile type. A staff profile has slightly different fields than a faculty or admissions profile.
  4. Add an image of the new faculty or staff member. All images should measure 150 x 150 pixels.
  5. Add the title of the faculty or staff member. When adding more than one title, use a separate row instead of separating with a comma.

  6. Input the person’s office location.
  7. Complete the contact information block. Pick a type from the type drop-down menu (e.g., phone, email).
  8. Input a value in the value field. This needs to match the type, either a phone number, fax number, email, or website address.
  9. Input the degree information. Click on the add a row button when inputting more than one degree, do not separate with a comma.
  10. Add a Curriculum Vitae if applicable.
    Additional options
  11. If desired, add information into the last text input field. This insures that the read profile band appears under the faculty member’s photo. If no copy is entered, this band does not show causing the faculty member’s degree and additional information not to be visible.

Before publishing the newly added faculty/staff people page, make sure the correct category is selected on the right-hand side. The person will appear in the list of whichever category is assigned. Note: You can also create custom categories such as “Emeritus Faculty” or “Adjunct Faculty”.
