Linking to staff IRIS Profiles

You can link to a researcher's IRIS profile in NUI Galway's Researchers Section by doing the following:

Add a 'Staff Contact Card' content type to your page.

  • Give it a name (e.g. the staff member's name)
  • Supply the part of their IRIS profile's web address that appears AFTER
    e.g.  '/law/shanedarcy' (picked because it was the shortest profile name I could see)

This will include a snippet of HTML code in your page, which contains the staff member's:

  • picture
  • name
  • qualifications
  • title and part of the last address entered into their IRIS profile
  • and a link to their full IRIS profile

These contact card snippets are created automatically from the published IRIS profiles.
Note: You cannot preview these in Site Manager - you'll only see them once the page has published.


If you cannot see the below examples (chosen because they have differing lengths of content entered into their profiles), you must be using t4's in-app preview feature (which cannot show them).  To see them, you need to go to this page in the preview area:

Adding staff content cards to courses

Staff content cards can be added to undergrad / taught research / adult learning courses by:

  • Creating a sub-section that does NOT show in navigation.
  • Adding as many 'staff contact card' content types as you need to this section.

The contact cards will appear in the 'Who teaches this course' accordion, on the course overview page, underneath any content that may have been entered into the 'Who teaches this course' field.
