Staff pages contain basic contact information, as well as the option to include more detailed biographical information and the ability to upload images and resume files.
Staff pages, like ?Faculty pages, are automatically included on the sub-site's People page, as well as on the full Faculty and Staff Directory pages, as soon as they are published (and removed when unpublished).
It is obviously important that this information be complete and current, but there are a couple additional important items to remember:
1. No page, No search
Staff members without pages will not be found in a search within the CMS (unless separately listed in other content).
2. Multiple entries necessary
Staff working in different departments must have separate pages for each department site, as the system does not currently allow for cross-posting content.

Add a Portrait Image
Images on faculty/staff bio pages must be at least 148 x 178 px (vertical) and no larger than 2 MB.
Images larger than 148x178 will be resized and cropped to fit.
Portrait, not Landscape
Images larger than 148x178 will first be resized down to 178 pixels high. If the resulting image is then wider than 148 pixels, the extra content on the right side of the image will be cropped (cut off)
