The information on some WordPress pages is drawn from the HR PeopleSoft database, and cannot be edited directly through WordPress. These include:
- The main college directory
- Department faculty/staff listings (example)
- Some information on individual profile pages (example)
Who to contact for updates
|Title or contact information||Barbara Pietras||HR|
|Courses taught||Barbara Casey||n/a|
|Faculty committees||Gail Burda||n/a|
To change information that is included on individual profiles but not listed above, you’ll need to edit your faculty/staff profile.
By default, your directory photo is your college ID photo. In most cases, ID photos are copied to the online directory the day after they are taken.
You may provide your own photograph for use in the online directory. The photo should contain a clear shot of your face & shoulders, be at least 105px wide by 135px tall, and be taken in good lighting conditions against a non-distracting background.
Email your image to [email protected] and we’ll add it to the directory. We’re happy to take larger photos and resize/crop them.
A Williams profile page will have a URL like this:http://english.williams.edu/profile/abc1
Where english is the department name, and abc1 is the person’s Williams user ID. Profile pages are linked to from department faculty/staff listings.
Photos on profile pages
Individual profile pages use your directory photo by default. However, you can upload a different picture to your profile page through WordPress (see how to edit your profile picture).
Note: uploading a photo to your profile page will NOT automatically update your picture in the main college directory, or your department’s faculty/staff listing.
