How to set up a profile page on your website

The profiles normally appear on a dedicated page, for example, "About us" or "Meet our team".

  1. Create a page where you want profiles to appear.
  2. Add the page datafolder "Profiles" to this page. (Right-click the page, select "Add Datafolder" and follow the steps of the wizard.)
  3. On the page, insert the function "Composite.Lists.Profiles" ( Insert | Function) or add the following code: Expand code
  4. If necessary, specify the profile group the profiles of which you want to show on the page in the "Profile Group" parameter (optional). If none is selected (by default), all the groups (if any) will be listed, grouped.

How to add a profile

The profile form, which you need to fill for each person you want to be listed on the "profiles" page, has two required fields: "Name" and "Profile Group". We recommend that you also specify the "Title" and "Image", write a short description ("Description") and provided some contact information, for example, an email address ("E-mail").

Note. Make sure that you have at least one profile group created.

  1. Expand the page you've set up as a "profiles" page, select "Profiles" and click "Add Data" on the toolbar.
  2. In the form that opens, fill the following fields:
    1. Name: The person's name, normally, the first name and the last name.
    2. Profile Group: The profile group the person belongs to (if any).
    3. Title: The person's job title.
    4. Image: The person's photo or any representing image.
    5. Priority: The position of the profile in the list on the page. Used to order profiles.
    6. Statement: The person's statement such as a motto etc.
    7. Description: The short description of the person.
    8. E-mail: The person's email address (if any).
    9. Twitter username: The person's Twitter username (if any).
    10. LinkedIn link: The URL to the person's LinkedIn public profile.
    11. Facebook link: The URL to the person's Facebook public page or user account.
  3. Click "Save" or "Save and Publish".
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for as many profiles as you need.

How to add a profile group

You should make sure that at least one profile group has been created before you start adding profiles. Composite.Lists.Profiles comes with a default group called "General".

When having profiles displayed on a page, you can select the group they should be limited to. When not selected, all the profiles will be displayed as grouped.

To add a profile group:

  1. In the "Content" perspective, expand "Website Items", select "Profile Groups" and click click "Add Data" on the toolbar.
  2. In the form that opens, type the name of a new group in the "Name" field.
  3. Click "Save".
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for as many profile groups as you need.
