Faculty sites: Projects are available on Full-Scale faculty sites. If you would like Projects, upgrade your faculty site.

Projects offer the opportunity to share your research or academic ventures separate from other pages. Each project has its own project page, and all projects are automatically displayed in a list under the 'Projects' link in the main menu.

Projects will appear in the order they are added, with the most recent project at the top.

Create a Project

By default Projects live under the 'Projects' link in the main menu. Click the 'Add Project' button at the top. Begin filling out the fields.

  • Title: A title is required.
  • Alternate URL: If the project exists as a page on a different website, you can use the Alternate URL to link there instead of duplicating the content on your website. With an alternate URL in place, clicking the title of this project will take visitors to the external project website.
  • Body: Create the main content of your project as you would a normal page.
  • Summary: By default the first few sentences of the body will be used when the Project is displayed in the project list. Use summary to define your own short description if you wish.
  • Thumbnail Image: This small image will appear when your project is displayed in the project list. Use the alternate text to briefly describe the image for screenreader users.
