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.

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.

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 and Use Headings

Overview of 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.

Add a link to a website (external)

Overview of External Links

You can add a link to a specific external URL by selecting the text you wish to hyperlink, then clicking the "Link to content" button. (You can also remove a link via the "Unlink" button).

After clicking the "Link to Content" button, add the URL in the "Link URL" field for an external link.

Add a link to another page (internal) on the same website

Overview of Internal Links

To add a link to another page on the same website, select the text or image you would like to hyperlink, then use the "Link to Content" button.

Use the auto-complete field to find the page you want to link to (e.g., start typing "About Us" to find the "About Us" page). Select the appropriate page, then click "Insert link" to insert the internal link to the appropriate page.

The WYSIWYG (Editing) Toolbar

Overview

When you create a Content Page, News item, or FAQ item, and if you are a Site Builder creating certain widgets, you will notice an editing toolbar within the "Body" section:

Create News Items

Overview

For more information about the News feature, please see "How do I create a News listing?"

When News items are added to your site, they will automatically populate at http://[yoursite].berkeley.edu/news-archive. News items can be assigned to a News type before publishing (optional; News types can only be created/managed by Site Builders). "General" is the default News type that comes with all Open Berkeley sites, and more types can be added as necessary.
