Publications Widgets

A list of all publications on your site is available at the path /publications. By default, the list is displayed as a sortable table (the "Full Listing Table" widget, as described below) with Title, Author, Year (from the publication date), and Publication Type (see Create and Edit Publications).

Visitors can filter the list of publications by author, sitewide topic (if using), publication type, and keywords. Keywords include words in the title, abstract, and other fields (see Create and Edit Publications). When filtering by Author, the field will suggest matches based on the text typed in the "Author" fields on the Publication content items.

Site Builders may choose whether the Publications page displays all results at once, or whether it uses a pager to display a certain number of results at a time. 

Publication Widget Types, Examples, and Featured Image

There are several widgets available for displaying Publications content on individual pages. The Featured Image option on individual Publication items is for displaying a photo on an individual Publication page, and/or for displaying photos on certain Publications widgets, as well as other Listings widgets. See below for more information. 

To use the Publications widgets, navigate to the "Customize this Page" button at the bottom of the page, then select the "Publications" item. See Figure 1, below.

Filter: Publications and Full Listing Table: Publications

See Figure 7, below. This widget may be filtered by Publication Type and/or sitewide Topics. See Listings Widgets for additional information about how to configure these types of widgets (e.g., apply filters and use a pager if desired).

Featured Image

As mentioned above, the "Grid" and "Thumbnail List" widgets will show a photo along with the text, like with the other available Listings widgets. Use the Featured Image field on the individual Publication items to designate the photos that show up in these widgets. If you do not upload a Featured Image to accompany the content featured in these widgets, a default image of the Campanile will display instead.

If a Featured Image is added to individual Publication items, the photo will display on the Publication item in a sidebar region as a separate widget. If you’d like to remove it, go to the "Customize this page" button at the bottom of the page, and remove the widget. To add it back, go to the "Customize this page" button again, select "Page Content", and then "Featured Image".
