Using the Staff Directory Layout Generator

3 elements are needed to use the layout generator.

1. A section where you want the staff listing to be displayed

2. A child section under that section to store the staff direcotry entries
This section must be named staff_directory_entries. Any variation to this name will cause the generator to fail.

3. The Staff Directory Layout Generator content type
It is placed in the section where you want the staff listing to be displayed.

 

Example:

Parent and child sections for staff directories

 

staff_directory_entries section

All the Staff Directory Entries you want to display should be in this section.

Put them in the order that you want them to be displayed.

The generator can also display the General content type. You can use a General content type to separate categories of staff members or to add information between Staff Directory entries.

Example:

Staff directory content types listed in the content tab of the page

Staff Directory Layout Generator

The Staff Directory Layout Generator looks for a child section named staff_directory_entries and populates its own section with content that it finds. It displays the content based on the option you choose.
