WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Faculty Staff Listing Page Element
This document explains how to add a Faculty Staff Listing to your pages. For an example, see https://wiscweb.wisc.edu/page-elements/faculty-staff-listing/.
Faculty Staff Listings allow you to have a list of staff or faculty added to your page. This Page Element works in conjunction with Faculty/Staff Members pages that you create using WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Using Faculty/Staff Members.
The Faculty Staff Listing is only available in only the One Column Content Layout option.
- If you elect to use photos for your faculty, ensure they are all the same size (height x width) so that they display uniformly.
Adding a Faculty Staff Listing
- Navigate to the page on which you want to add a Faculty Staff Listing.
- Scroll to the Primary Content Area and the Layout on which you want to add a Faculty Staff Listing.
- At the bottom of that Layout, click on Add Page Element.
