Bio Pages-Templates and CMS - Carnegie Mellon University

Bio Pages

The CMS offers three bio page templates, Regular Bio Pages, Bio Index Pages, and Short Bio Pages.

Bio Pages

Regular Bio Page

A Regular Bio Page displays one person per page and allows in-depth biographical information about the person such as education, research, curriculum vitae, etc.

Bio Index Page

A Bio Index Page is an optional page that serves as a directory for Regular Bio Pages.

Short Bio Page

A Short Bio Page is ideal for showing multiple people on a single page with a brief amount of information about each of them.

Using Regular and Short Bio Pages Together

You may use a Short Bio Page to serve as a directory page for Regular Bio Pages. On the Short Bio Page, there is usually a "read more" link that goes to the Regular Bio Page for each person.
