People Without Profiles

Besides linking to a person's profile, the web system allows you to link to an external profile or have no profile at all.

No Profile

There is no need to display an empty profile page for people who don't have or don't wish to display their background information.  For these people, you will...

  1. Add a Person profile page by selecting Person from the Add New... drop-down menu on the green bar.
     Add A New Person
  2. An Add Person page will display.  Notice that this page has a grey bar with tabs.  It is in these various tab regions that you will enter the data/information.

  3. On the Content tab, fill in the following fields:
    • Fill in the person's First Name.
    • Fill in the person's Last Name and any designations they might have.  For example: Smith, PhD.
    • Image - this is where you will upload a person's picture (there is no need to upload their photo to the root images folder as you previously needed to).  These images should be uploaded to the web system at 188 pixels wide by 250 pixels tall.  CAUTION - Any image smaller than these dimensions will be stretched to fill the space and could look pixelated and blurry.
    • Ensure that you do not enter any text into the Body Text field.  Doing so will trigger the system to link to the profile page within our web system.
  4. On the Gallery Information tab, enter the information that you wish to display on the gallery page.  There is no need to list the person's name here.  The system will automatically do that for you.

    Content entered in the Gallery Information tab will display next to the persons photo on the Personnel Gallery page

  5. The Categorization tab is optional.  You only need to tag/categorize people if you will be using a collection to display your groups of people.  If you are, then type in the tag you assigned to the group the person belongs to.  If they belong to more than one group, list each additional tag on a separate line.  You can read more about this on the page for Displaying the Same People in More Than One Group.

Linking To An External Profile

In lieu of linking to a person's profile on your site, you can link to an external one, such as Find A Doc.  This allows you to display a person on the gallery page and have their photo and name link to the external profile.  This also allows a center or program to link to profiles that are managed on the department's web site.  For these people you will...

  1. Add a Person profile page by selecting Person from the Add New... drop-down menu on the green bar.
