WiscWeb - Displaying publications on a faculty/staff page

Users may display a list of publications on a faculty/staff biography page within the UW Theme. The steps below will walk you through this process.

If you haven’t already, you’ll first need to create your faculty/staff member(s).

The instructions for this process are located in WiscWeb - Creating Faculty/Staff Members.

Step 2: Create your publications

After you’ve created your faculty/staff member, you can create the publication that you’d like to associate with them.

  1. First, follow the instructions listed in WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Using the Publications Plugin to set up your publication
