Managing the Faculty/Staff Listing on your Site

Follow these instructions to manage the faculty and staff listing on your website.

Note: In order to make changes to the faculty & staff listing page, the Faculty/Staff Listing plugin must be installed and setup on your site. If your site needs to be setup with this capability, contact Web Services.

Setting up Faculty/Staff Listing Page

 

  1. BSU Faculty & Staff login to MyBSU, NTC Faculty & Staff login to MyNTC.
  2. Once logged in, go to your website by hovering over the WordPress link in the top bar, and selecting your site from the drop-down list.
  3. From your site dashboard, click on the Pages link in the left hand navigation. This will bring up a list of all the pages on your website. Select the page that you would like to use as your faculty and staff listing page.
  4. In the “Page Attributes” metabox on the right side of the page there is a drop-down input field called “Template”. This determines the layout of the page. There are a handful of templates for you to chose from, but you’ll want to chose one of the following options:
    • Facstaff 2 Column Listing Page
    • Facstaff 1 Column Listing With Photo Page
    • Facstaff 1 Column Listing With Photo and Bio Page
  5. If you want to include any info, or a group photo above list of faculty and staff, you can add that content in the main editor window.
  6. When you’re done making changes, press the “Update” or “Publish” button, and your changes will be saved.

While you are typing, a drop-down list of users that match what you have entered should appear. Select the user that you are looking for, and their information should be pulled into the fields below.

In the Category field, select whether the user belongs to the faculty, adjunct faculty, or staff group. The Special Title is an optional field, but allows you to denote people in your department who might have a special title like a Department Chair.
