Using People

People provide a convenient way to provide listing of any type of people: staff, ministry leaders, deacons, missionaries, volunteers, etc. To start you’ll need to make sure people are enabled in the Church Pack Dashboard.

Adding a Person

Each person has several fields besides the name.

Photo – This image will be used in the exact size you select after uploading. Make sure the image isn’t too large for your theme. Generally, WordPress’ thumbnail size is a good choice.

Bio – Here’s where you can add a brief biography.

Email – This is protected from spam bots using core WordPress features.

Blog, Facebook, and Twitter – Make sure you enter the full url for each of these including the “http://”

To show only a specific category, use this shortcode:

To change the order, the Post Types Order plugin is the easiest solution. The shortcode can also handle all the available WP_Query options listed here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters
