Edit a Faculty/Staff Page

Contact pages list a roster of faculty and staff who work in the program or department. Because of UW-Green Bay's collaborative culture, many faculty and staff serve in multiple departments and offices. To gain efficiencies in maintenance, we use Kentico’s linked pages to place Faculty/Staff Pages in multiple sub-sites. The Faculty/Staff Pages actually live in the Directory site under People, but have a virtual link under your site's contact us page. In this way, if you update the contact information in one Faculty/Staff Page, you'll actually update all of them.

Faculty and Staff (Widget and Linked Pages)

The Faculty & Staff 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.***

How to Add Faculty/Staff Members

  •  Add the Faculty & Staff widget to the page in a default section, if there isn’t one there already.
  • Click Save.
  • In the content tree on the left, click to select the contact us page under which the Faculty/Staff Member linked page(s) should be placed.
  • Click the plus sign (+) on the top, left of the screen (above the site tree).
  • Click Link to an existing page on the right side of the screen.
  • 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.

  • 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.


If anyone doesn’t have a photo assigned in their profile, a placeholder image appears in its place. If a member of the faculty and staff had a portrait done by Marketing and University Communication, they already have a web image in the system. But their photo still needs to be added to their profile. When the photographer processes the portraits, they resize and save the portrait for web and upload it to the people folder in the Directory media library.

Updating Faculty and Staff

If there is employee turnover, it’s very important to remember that you don't want to just rename a person’s page and swap out their information. For one thing, the new person might not fill all the same roles that as their predecessor. Another is that the page URL will continue to have the previous person’s name.

Edit a Faculty/Staff Page

  • In the content tree on the left, select the Faculty/Staff page you wish to edit.
  • Click Create a New Version or Check Out.
  • Click the Content tab at the top of the screen.
  • Find the form field for the content you wish to edit and make your edit.
  • Click Save.
  • Click Check in.
  • Click Submit for approval.
