Add CAP Profiles to Your Web Pages
The Profile component provides a way to add individual profiles or create lists of profiles using information from Stanford Profiles or by creating a custom profile.
How it works
The component pulls information directly from the Stanford Profiles system (also known as CAP). Authors may search for profiles in the component using an individual's name or SUnet ID. Information available to the component includes title (several options), bio, publications and photo. Information will only display if it is listed in the individual's profile.
Please note: The component only accesses publicly available profiles. If the profile owner has set their profile to the "Stanford Only" view, their information will not appear in the component. The profile owner may edit this setting in Profiles.
In June 2019 an option to create a 'custom profile' was added to the component. A custom profile has the same display options as a CAP profile, thereby enabling authors to create cohesive looking people pages. Each custom profile is single use and must be copied and pasted or recreated if used in more than one location on a website. It is not possible to use a custom profile on multiple websites.
Custom Profile options include name, title, contact information, bio and photo.
Note: Custom profiles may not be included in lists.
