People Modules


This page includes:


Overview

People Modules allow you to display groups of people on pages.

There are two People Modules:

  • Grid - People Custom - use this to choose the specific individuals that will be displayed in the module.
  • Grid - People Feed - use this to choose the specific Site Section and Role combination for the people to display in the module.

 

Important: 

  • All people must have a published profile before they will appear in a People Module.
  • If there are no people for the selected role, the entire module will not display.

 


People Module Types

The People Modules look identical - the difference is whether the people shown have been hand-selected or are being automatically displayed.

Display Features

  • Desktop items per row - choice of 1 to 4 items. The smaller the number, the larger and more impactful the display will be.
  • Images:
    • Images can be turned on or off in the settings.
    • Images are optional. If an individual does not have a photo associated with their profile, a default H graphic will appear.
    • Image size (small or large) can be selected for modules displaying 1 row. The large image is useful for leadership positions (e.g. Department Directors).
  • Title - there is an option to display title from each person's profile.
  • Profile Summary - there is an option to display the profile summary from each person's profile.
  • NOTE: Modules will not display if there are no matching people associated with it.

 

Grid - People Custom

Use this module to choose the specific individuals that will be displayed by selecting specific individuals from a dropdown. This kind of People Module will need to be manually updated over time to add or remove people. If the person does not appear here, make sure they have a published profile.

 

Grid - People Feed

Use this module to choose the specific Site Section and Role combination for the people to display.

Roles:

  • Administration
  • Dean
  • Director
  • Faculty
  • Senior Staff
  • Staff

WordPress Options for Grid People Custom Modules

The WordPress CMS options for this module are below. The standard header options apply to all.

Desktop Items / Row

Determines how many items to show per row on desktop browsers. The smaller the number, the larger the individual article boxes will display - showing more prominence. Options are 1-4.

Show Image

Option to display photo from the profile. If image is selected but an individual does not have a photo associated with their profile, a default H graphic will appear.

Show small image option is only available when 1 row and images are to be displayed. If "no" is selected, it will display a large image, which is useful for leadership positions (e.g. Department Directors). If "yes" is selected, a smaller image will and will have less emphasis.

Show Title

Option to display titles from the profile.

Show Profile Summary

Option to display the Profile Summary from the profile. Better for 1-3 Desktop Items/Row, not recommended for 4 Desktop Items/Row.

Grid Items

Select the individuals you wish to display in this grouping. Use Add Row to add additional people. Drag and drop to reorder people. If the person does not appear here, make sure they have a published profile.

Call to Action

Helpful to link to particular department or webpage for this group. Copy is headline style (AP). Be specific (ex: "Read More About Hunter"), not generic (ex: "Read More"), for users using screen readers.
