Step 5: Adding Pages You want to make all of your pages first! Click Pages in the navigation bar This is how you will add content on to your site. Click Add New, and name the page (You want to have at least 3 pages to start in order to get your e-portfolio approved). Examples of Pages: Home/Welcome Page (essential), About Me, Hobbies, Work Experience, Resume, Contact Me, Career Objectives, etc.
Step 5: Pages (cont.) Create your Home/Welcome Page First! This page should welcome the public to your site. It must include a professional picture, your major and minor if applicable On each page you have the ability to insert videos, add tables, change fonts, etc. (you can play around with this) You will see a Featured Image menu on the right hand side, where you can upload a picture file from your library (professional pic). You can also Add Media anywhere in your page
Step 5: Pages (cont.) Once you’ve finished with a page, you can hit Preview (on the right) to see how your page would look to the public. If you are satisfied, click Publish to save your changes. You can then Add a New Page. (keep adding and designing pages until you have ample content).
Resume Page It is always a great idea to include a page with a link to your resume. (http://community.fox.temple.edu/meganrybak/my-resume/)http://community.fox.temple.edu/meganrybak/my-resume/) To do this, Add New page, title it Resume, and write in your page “Click Here to view my Resume.” Highlight the word “Here” and click “Add Media.” Upload your resume (word doc or PDF) and title the document “Here”. (This will create a blue link where visitors can click and instantly access your resume). ***You can also highlight any pictures and “insert hyperlink” by typing in the name of the URL that you want your picture to lead to.
Step 6: Add Posts Like adding pages, you can also add posts in the same fashion Posts are dedicated to making your site standout; sharing resources/knowledge Each post is essentially a blog where you can post info relevant to the HR or business field (articles, videos, reactions to a speaker, etc.)
Step 7: Adding Menus Once you’ve made all of the pages that you want to go on your site, click Appearance and Menus. Your going to want to create a menu name called Pages (if you want one list) or create separate menu headings, for example: About Me, Education, Experience. On the left hand side, you want to check the boxes of all of the pages that you created (or select just the pages you want under a specific heading), Add to Menu, and Save.
Step 8: Add Menus to Your Site Go to Appearance and Customize. Click Static Front Page on the left and make your front page your Welcome/Home Page. (Every time someone visits your site, that is the first page they’ll see) In Primary Widget Area, you can Remove every widget BUT Recent Posts and Search. (You want these to appear on your site). You want to add a widget in your primary area called Custom Menu. Select Pages or your other menu titles. If you are using multiple headings to organize pages you will need to drag the widget over as many times as you want headings, example 3 headings means 3 widget menus. Be sure to SAVE your changes.
