Publish your personal page in the staff directory

​When you publish your presentation text, profile picture or your own DiVA listings, it is important that you scroll back to the top of your profile page so you can see the Publish profile button. It is this button that publishes your changes, so use it!

Your profile page will not be published when you…

Once you’ve come a bit further down on your profile page, you will no longer see the Publish profile button but rather a gray bar with texts that say, Changes to be published, and a button that says Publish? Do not use this, because your changes will not be published, but will be set in the ready to be published mode. This publishing feature is available in Episerver and is used by editors who have editorial rights in Episerver.

What will happen if I “accidently” click Publish instead of Publish profile?

If you notice that your changes were not visible externally when you visit your profile page (without editing it), you can fix it by Edit profile followed by Publish Profile.

Update your presentation text in staff directory

Log in and go to your profile page via your organization’s list of faculty and staff.

Short presentation text

The short presentation text is displayed in staff directory lists and on your own personal page.

In this field, you can only add plain text – there are no formatting possibilities, links, etc. The appropriate length for this text is approximately 160 characters.

Long presentation text

The long presentation text is displayed on your personal page. Remember to use a well-prepared and understandable language, write the most important things first and aim to be as concise as possible.

In this field, you can format the text in:

  • Bold
  • Italics
  • Bullet and numbered list
  • Create links to internal or external pages

Remember the alt-text

Links should always have an alt-text. The text is written as the Link title. All the links you add should briefly describe what the link leads to. The alt-text is read aloud by assistive devices and thus mediates the link content to visitors who are visually impaired.

Open links in a new window or the same?

  • Links to pages within the same web site, documents/files and other external web sites should open in the same window. Leave the option “Open in” blank.

To create an internal link (within the same site), select the option called Sida and to create an external link, select the option called Extern länk.

More formating options

Ways to format your text with the options that are available are described in the image below.

Upload a new photo on your personal page

If you wish to change your picture, you can do so via your profile page.

Photo dimensions and file formats

Portrait on Jonas Lidström

The new image will be cropped in the following dimensions:

Width: 180 pixels

Height: 230 pixels

The acceptable file formats are: jpg, jpeg, gif and png. The file extensions must be written in lower case. Upper case in the file extension means that the image cannot be uploaded. 

How to do it

1. Your image is cropped and ready.

2. Go to your profile page and choose “Login/Edit” to the right in the header.

3. Click the Edit profile button.

4. Then click on “Ladda upp ny bild” (Upload new image).

5. Your image must be stored on your computer. Make sure you can see the file explorer or desktop while you can see the box where you want to release your image.

6. Grab the image and drop it within the dotted box that says “Släpp bild som du vill ladda upp här” (drop the image you want to upload here).

7. When you are finished, click OK, and then click Publish profile.

If you click the little x in the upload window, the last image that was uploaded will disappear. Instead, the image that was there before will be displayed.
