WiscWeb CMS - Foundation Pages - Working with a Faculty/Staff Page

The Faculty/Staff Page is useful for listing the Faculty and Staff in a group.

Note that creating a Faculty/Staff Page depends upon a Faculty List already being in place. See WiscWeb CMS - Content Blocks - Using a Faculty List on creating a Faculty List block.

Here is an example of a Faculty/Staff Page:

  3. Click Create and Connect Page to create a new listing.

  4. On the following screen, enter the person's name and click OK.

    A new page is then created, and you are returned to the Faculty List page. You might notice extra space appears in the Faculty List, but there is no content being pulled in from the new page, because we have not yet entered information for the person.

  5. To find the page that you just created in order to edit it, use the Search button in the left navigation menu.

  6. Search via the Headline field by typing in the name of the person for whom you created a faculty or staff page, then click Start.

    enter Headline

    On the following screen will be the results for your search.

    A new window appears that allows you to choose a new image, as well as add/modify alternative text for the image (the latter is important for users with screen readers, text browsers, or have images disabled and Section 508 compliance, which the University of Wisconsin is required to abide by).

  6. Once you have selected an image and typed in alternative text, click OK in the lower-right corner.

  7. Finally, you can edit the faculty member's profile by clicking on the third red dot in the column.

In addition to these default components of a faculty member's page, you can also add the usual content blocks within each column, if you so choose.
