Create People Content

Overview of People (Person) Pages

The People feature comes with a "Person" content type. There are several fields available on the Person content type. Once you create your individual Person items, they will populate at the "/people" path, and can also be displayed using several widget types.

Content Types

Overview

There are four content types available by default on an Open Berkeley site. If you are using any optional features on your site, then you will see additional content types available.

People Feature

The People feature allows you to create content for individual people, which can be featured/listed in a few different ways. This feature is a good way to create and showcase a directory of people on your site.

Create Content Pages

Most likely, you will find that the majority of your content will be created as "Content pages." A Content page is a standard webpage, with one primary chunk of content, and is likely in the main menu of your site.

Start with Content Pages as you build out your site, then add FAQs, News Items, and Landing Pages and additional widgets (Site Builders and Widget Editors only) as additional content. For a breakdown of available...

Edit photos and files from the dashboard

From your admin menu and dashboard, you can edit the default alt and title text of image files, change the names of files, replace a file with a new version, and crop an image.

To perform any of these actions, navigate to your "Files" tab by hovering over your admin menu, or clicking on your dashboard in the upper left corner of your site.

Add Images/Photos

Overview

Images can be added to all pages on an Open Berkeley website, either directly in a content item (such as a Content page, News item, or FAQ item), or added to a customized page (such as a Landing page, or...

Add Lists

When you have content that makes semantic sense as a list, use the list buttons instead of simply using line breaks. Proper use of lists is an accessibility best practice. To create a list, place your cursor in the WYSIWYG field and select the WYSIWYG button for a bullet (unordered) or numbered (ordered) list.

Add Tables

Tables allow you to display data in rows and columns. You can create tables on your Open Berkeley site, and you should make sure that any tables you create are accessible to people with disabilities. Use tables for tabular data, not layout (i.e., do not use a table in order to only display images in rows). If you need text and images to align a certain way on a page, anyone with the Site Builder or Widget...

Create FAQs

When FAQ items are added to your site, they will automatically populate at http://[yoursite].berkeley.edu/faq-page. FAQ items have to be assigned to a category before publishing. Before you can create FAQ items, you (or someone with the Site Builder role) must evaluate and create applicable FAQ categories. "General" is the default category that comes with all Open Berkeley sites, and more categories can be added as necessary. By default, FAQs will display as "jump" (anchor) links....

Add and Use Headings

Using headings properly can help in creating a semantic, organized structure to your content, and in allowing site visitors to more easily navigate and read through your website content. If your page content has a lot of sections, each with its own subtitle, you should consider using headings instead of simply applying bold or using CAPITAL LETTERS for your section titles.

Proper use of headings is an accessibility best practice. See "Use headings correctly to...
