Kentico - Updating Faculty & Staff Rosters

This document details the steps to add a bio and photo page for a faculty or staff member. This assumes the faculty\staff has been added to the Directory\People section of the web. Please contact if their name isn't in the directory.

Don't repurpose linked pages. It’s very important that you don't rename a person’s page and swap out their information. The page might be linked someplace else. The new person might not fill all the same roles that as their predecessor and the page URL will continue to have the previous person’s name.

Faculty & Staff (Widget & Linked Pages)

This widget automatically populates the faculty/staff roster on the contact us page with content from the contact child pages. In order for people to appear in the roster, you must first add Faculty/Staff Member pages under the page on which this widget is placed. Add at least one person's page to have them show up here.

  • In a default section, add the Faculty & Staff widget to the page.

  • Click the plus sign on the top, left of the screen (above the site tree).

  • Browse to Directory > People and search for the name of the person you’d like to add. If their page doesn’t exist, it will need to be created. Email for help.

  • Click the checkbox to the left of the name to select.
  • Repeat Steps 6 and 7 for each Faculty/Staff Member you want to add.
  • With all the Faculty/Staff Members selected, click Link.
  • The Faculty/Staff pages will be added as child link pages to the site tree. Their portraits and contact information will automatically populate the Faculty & Staff Widget.

Need Help?

Because faculty and staff are placed with linked pages, editing and updating can be complicated. If you don’t feel confident, just email to request help.
