Specialty Pages

Custom Page Templates

In addition to the Default (internal page) and Landing Page templates, the Red theme includes custom templates for Contact Pages, Directory listing pages, News and Event listing pages. To create a specialty page, add a new page and select the appropriate Template from the Page Attributes field.

Contact page

The Contact page template does not include a header image. There is an Intro text area with an optional Subtitle and required Body text.

The content components that are available on this page include: Text Block, Highlight Contact, Highlight Directory and Gravity Form. You can use multiple instances of these components and order them as necessary.

The Attach Billboard feature is available for this page as well.

Directory page

The Directory template allows you to create a listing from your Profile posts (faculty, staff, students, etc.). The page template does not include a header image, but does include an Intro text area with an optional Subtitle field.

The Directory feature allows you to select what category(ies), Research Areas, Departments, or Roles of Profile posts you want to display (or exclude) on the page.  The default list is ordered A-Z by last name and includes the profile image, name, title, phone and email and links to the full Profile.  This way you can set up the page only to display a certain position (i.e. professor, grad student, etc.) or a certain research field (i.e. Victorian Studies, Bioengineering, etc.).

Visitors can also filter the Directory page view by any of the taxonomies associated with a particular profile (i.e. Research Areas, Departments, etc.), that also falls within the taxonomies you selected to be included on the page.  Now your visitors can filter what type of Profiles display based on the taxonomies assigned to both Profile posts as well as the particular Profile template page.

The page does not include any additional content area or components, however you can attach Billboards below the listing.

News listing page

The News listing page allows you to show an archive of News posts. The page template does not include a header image, but does include an Intro body text area with an optional Subtitle field.

The News listing feature allows you to select what category(ies) of news posts you want to display (or exclude) on the page, either a single category, or multiple categories.  You have two options of displaying the news listings: List (with excerpts) or Tile.  The List format will include a thumbnail of any images included in individual posts, the headline linked to the full post, and an excerpt of the body of the post.  The Tile format will appear similar to the Featured Tiles component do on a page; the news posts appear 2 articles across – with a large (clickable) image, title and excerpt of the body of the post.  List format is single file vertical in organization, while the Tile format is two across.

The listing is ordered from most recent to older posts and will automatically create pagination at the bottom of the page. You do have the option of making an individual News post “sticky” which means that it will stay at the top of the list as long as this designation is activated.

The page does not include any additional content area or components, however you can attach Billboards below the listing.

Event listing page

The Event listing page allows you to show an archive of Event posts. The page template does not include a header image, but does include an optional Subtitle field.

The Event listing page allows you to select what category(ies) of event posts you want to display (or exclude) on the page, either a single category, or multiple categories. The list will include the event title linked to the full post, date, time and location information. Below the Subtitle and above the individual event listings, the visitor will see a date filter feature to limit the dates of items to show.  The date filter is set to present day, so that any events that took place in the past – will not show up by default.

The listing is ordered from most recent to older posts and will automatically create pagination at the bottom of the page. The page does not include any additional content area or components, however you can attach Billboards below the listing.

Research Project listing page

The Research Project listing page allows you to show an archive of Research Project listing posts. The page template does not include a header image, nor does it include an Intro text area.

The Research Project listing feature allows you to select what category(ies) of Research Project posts you want to display on the page, either a single category, or multiple categories – or which post type categories you want excluded.  The list will include the Research Project title linked to the full post, principal investigator, funding source and thumbnail picture.

The listing is ordered from most recent to older posts and will automatically create pagination at the bottom of the page. The page does not include any additional content area or components, however you can attach Billboards below the listing.
