Web Biography Widget



This widget was designed so that one or more professional biographies can be displayed on a page. The web biography (web bio) widget is perfect for highlighting people on a staff, team, in a class or as part of a teaching or research group.

This is a content type, which means that the information displayed in the widget is centrally located in the "Content" tab of the dashboard and is managed there, not on the individual page itself. The information for bios is dependent upon content initially imported into Sitefinity. Additional information can be added to an individual's biography in the content area under "Web Bios."

Design



There are six different ways to display the web bio widget. Below are your template display options:
