We assume you have already gathered some experience with your website and know the basics terms, how to edit or add a post etc.
Regardless if you want to show someones profile, a quote or a testimonial, you always have to add the person in the People section first. This allows you to reuse the person on different places on your website, without having to care about the photo etc.
Adding a person
- Go to People > Create.
- The title serves as your internal identifier, it will never be displayed to the public.
- Ideally you add a square photo. If not, it is automatically cropped.
- Read more about testimonials in the testimonials section.
Using Profiles is a great way for a party website to present your bord members, your members of parliament and your candidates.
You may add them with only the minimal information (suits best for board members):
Or with in-dept information about the peron (suits best for candidates):
So to add a profile, add the person first. Then switch over to the page or post where you want to include the person and add a content block of type Person.
If you add some additional info, the person block in the frontend gets expandable, like in the second screenshot. Else it will be presented as in the first screenshot.
Quotes are especially nice in press releases.
To add a qoute, first create the person. Then switch over to the page or post where you want to include the quote and add a content block of type Quote.
Testimonials can be displayed on the front page or on a regular page or post. However on pages and posts, they appear in a vertical alignment opposed to the front page, where they appear in a horizontal carousel. The order of the testimonials is random for every pageload.
Since we may want to show the testimonials on multiple places on the website, the quote is added directly to the person, so we don't have to repeat it everywhere we insert the testimonials content block. Assign a category to every testimonial (one person can have multiple testimonials, for example for different campaigns). You can then select the testimonials to display by category (in the content block).
