Web Publishing @ SCU

Using the Profile Manager and related elements

The Commonspot Profile element has changed form its original form.  Instead of managing profile data and selecting it for display in a single element, we now have a Profile Manager system available for content management, and the Profile Display and SCU Stories Display elements are available to select profile data for presentation in a Commonspot page.

About the Profile Manager

All of the content associated with a profile is now managed through this system.  Login to the Profile Manager, and you will find a list of all profiles that you currently have permission to edit.  You can add, edit, or delete profiles here, and share access to your profiles with other Commonspot users.

Profile Display Elements

You can select profiles for display in a Commonspot page using the Profile Display element, which is found in the Content Well element gallery category.  You'll also find an element that can be used to easily add an "SCU Stories" profile to a page - look for the SCU Stories Display element - it's pre-configured to select profiles in this collection.  Additionally, you'll find both the Profile and SCU Story elements in the Right Column element category.  Here's an example of how you would use this element to select all Music Department profiles for display in a summary list in the main Content Well.

Select a group of profiles:
