Create an Individual Person Post

You can create biographies of your staff members, speakers for a conference and more. After you’ve created your people posts, you can create a page to display the people posts.

Create an Individual Person Post

  1. At the top of the dashboard, click +New and select Person from the drop-down menu.
  2. Add a Title (this is the person’s name).
  3. Type (or paste, using the “paste as plain text” option) descriptive information (such as a bio) about the person into the Content Editor.
  4. (optional) Input any relevant information into the fields in the Staff Member Info section. Feel free to leave inapplicable fields blank.
  5. Write an Excerpt, a short description of the person that will be displayed with the featured image on the people page.
  6. (Optional) Add URLs for Social Networks.
  7. Add a photo of the person as the Featured Image, which will show up on the individual person profile and as a thumbnail on the people page.
  8. (Optional) If applicable, select existing Person Categories or Add New Person Category. Categories can be used to filter how people are displayed.
  9. (Optional) Under Attributes, enter a number under Order to designate the order in which you would like the person to appear on the people page, where one would be listed first.
  10. Click Save Draft or Publish.
