Faculty/staff pages

If you haven’t contacted the Web Team and asked to enable this feature it will not be available for you in Drupal. Please email Kelli Ariel at kelli.ariel@oswego.edu and she’ll get you set up! 

This Drupal feature is for all departments and offices across campus. We have set up a pre-defined, and pre-styled template for faculty/staff profiles based on the content fields faculty/staff pages previously used. This template will help keep these important pages consistent, allowing users to find information easier and more quickly across oswego.edu.

While content fields are pre-determined, there is still some flexibility in adding additional content.

Add a faculty/staff bio page

To add a faculty page:

  1. Click the menu > content button in your top toolbar

  2. Click the add content link towards the top of the page

  3. Select the faculty/staff link content type

  4. Fill in all applicable information, there may be help text underneath some fields to show you the appropriate styling. The most important information to include is their full name, first name, last name, position(s), phone number, office location and email. Some fields may not apply to a particular faculty/staff member, if this is the case leave the field blank, the next filled in field will move up to take it's place.

  5. If you are creating a faculty profile check the “Faculty member” box

If there is a particularly lengthy content field (some faculty member’s publications and conferences are expansive) select a few of the most recent or important.

Note: In order to list your faculty/staff alphabetically you must fill in the first name and last name fields

Create a faculty/staff listing page

Drupal is using structured content to pull specific information from the faculty/staff profile page to appear in your listing. This page is also pre-defined and pre-styled. If you have filled in the name, head shot, office location, email, and telephone number that information will be included on the listing. If you change the info on the profile page, the changes will automatically appear on the listing, you only have to edit one page!

Listings may be ordered alphabetically or customized, please specify which you prefer when you contact us to enable to the content type.
