List out who's who

This article will show you how to insert a web control into a page to display who's who information in a list format on your website.

  1. Press on your who's who folder and select New Content. The Create New Content window will appear.
  2. Click Web Page and then select your standard web page template, click Close.
  3. A new page will be created, give the page a title (eg. who's who-listing) and click Save.
  4. In the editable area of the page, right click to bring up the contextual menu. Select Insert Webcontrol and make any changes needed to the web control settings.
  5. Click Save, then Submit & Approve.

Note: It is essential that a user group has been created, for use with the who's who module and set up as an Organisational Unit group type. It then has to be selected from the listing web controls settings dropdown for the who's who web control to return results.

Respect User Profile Settings

Use this checkbox to toggle whether users can opt out of being listed in the who's who, by using the show profile to public checkbox in their user profile.

Show Favourites Link

This checkbox determines whether or not a favourites link will be displayed. This will allow users to add a person as a favourite. The favourites listing and favourites link controls must be configured separately to be made available to the who’s who module.

Show Link if Logged Out Location

By default the favourites link won't be displayed if the user isn't logged in to the CMS. This option allows you to override this to ensure the link is displayed even when users aren't logged in.

When this is checked, you will be shown a content selector allowing you to select a page to link to; this would normally be a login page or similar, letting the user know that they need to login to use this functionality.

Redirect On Link Click Location

When checked, this option will let you select a page to redirect the user to once a link has been clicked. You might want to redirect the users to a page containing a favourites listing control to show them a list of all of their favourites.

If this isn't checked the default behaviour will change the link text from Add to Favourites to Remove from Favourites within the viewed page.
