Drupal Template: 
UQ School Template

 

To add content such as text, images and documents to the website we created 5 content types consisting of a collection of fields where the content is entered. The content types for the UQ School Template are Article, Basic Page, Event, Project/Grant and Researcher/Staff profile.

The completed information is displayed or used when the content type is saved and published.

Article
Used for creating and displaying content that is time sensitive. It displays a publication date and by default appears on the site's News page when published
Basic Page
Used for creating and displaying content that may rarely change. Most content will be created using the basic page content type.
 
Event
Used for creating and displaying events. Future or current events are displayed in the Upcoming Events tab while expired events are displayed in the past tab on the Events page
Project / Grant
Captures information about projects or grants in the School. Recording the grant type and funding source are mandatory for these content types and the information is displayed when the project or grant page is viewed. It can be associated with Research Areas of the school along with researchers within the school.
Researcher / Staff Profile
Personal and position information are captured along with links to the researchers' UQ eSpace and UQ Researchers profiles.
