Person Profile Page

Main content start

With the addition of the Person content type and the dynamic People List page to Stanford Sites, you can now easily present, organize, and categorize a listing of the people in your organization.

Person profiles can be added locally to your website, or can be configured to integrate with your organization’s Stanford Profiles (CAP) using the Person Importer.

Add a Person Profile:

  1. Hover over All Content > Add Content  in the administrative toolbar, and click Person.
  2. Add Name & Titles, Taxonomy, Bio & Content, Contact & Location Information, and Interests & Affiliations as desired.
  3. If you are adding a profile image, use the person's name for the alternative text.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page.
  5. Leave the check box next to “Published” marked to have the Person published, or uncheck to make them unpublished.
  6. Click Save.

Add a person's profile to navigation

The person profile is the only dynamic content allowed in the main menu. You would add a person's profile to the main menu in the same way you would add a Basic page.

Troubleshooting

Can I change the page name?

The title People on a dynamic page is set by default and can not be changed. This goes for all dynamic pages (Events, News and Publications). You can workaround this by creating a basic page using a list or teaser.
