Library Directory Shortcode

Use Case

The library directory shortcode displays information about library employees using their netid. This is the same data used in the biography pages. The default behavior — see below — is to display basic contact information about the individual. However, all attributes can be omitted, and additional attributes are available. See a list of all attributes and their default value.

How to Use

Example 1: Default behavior

Code


[libdirectory netid="w-mischo"]

About Attributes

  •  “First” and “last” refer to the first and last name. You may set the attribute “name” to false and choose to display either first or last on their own.
  • Some attributes may not show when set to true. This is typically the case if the data is missing from the database or set to be omitted if it is a biography page metadata.
