Creating a new staff/author bio for AlexanderDorrington
There are 4 steps in the process of creating an author bio.
It’s a good idea to have your content such as text and images ready before you start. They are required when creating the user as they become the profile image shown in the author row on each blog post. Images are saved in several sizes for different uses. This is the optimisation of images, it is important to use the correct size rather than using a larger file for all.
1. Image Optimisation
This is important as we save different file sizes to improve site speed and this is detailed in the video below or more in-depth in our tutorial Optimising images for web.
File sizes for your staff images:
500 x 750 pixels – for use on individual Staff pages
600 x 700 pixels – for use on About and User pages
2. Create User
Left side bar > Users > Add New > Add the details, Role Author > Add New User
Edit User > Avatar > Upload shorter image > Update User
4. Add Bio Link on Our People
Our People > Enable Visual Builder
Row > Cog > Duplicate column > Edit the duplicate module, Name, Title, Image, Link > Save > Exit visual builder
