1.  Can anyone recommend good Staff/People profile plugin?

Posted Sep 08, 2016 18:43

I'm hoping that someone in the group has a go-to plugin they like for managing Staff/Board/People profiles. I'm looking for your standard headshot + short bio + contact details profile with a nice overview page. Hopefully it would support multiple types of people so we could do Board and Staff on separate pages.

I've always built things like this custom and I've struggled to find a plugin I liked. Staffer seemed promising, but it hasn't been updated in two years (including some changes I submitted to them via GitHub!).

Any and all recommendations are greatly appreciated!

I did a really nifty staff page for a group called Community HealthCorps using a plugin called Ubergrid.  It's not specifically for making staff pages, but it has some really cool features, including categories (which can be turned off or on) and pop-up lightbox capabilities (click on any of the staff member boxes):  http://dev.communityhealthcorps.com/our-team/.

Sadly, they lost the entirety of their government funding about halfway through the project, so they had to cancel the contract and the site is only half finished.  We never got to build out the home page widgets, but did get content on a lot of the other pages.

I've used the Simple Staff List plugin here: Healthwatch Bucks and here: Maternity Action.

Really simple to use, has a basic template you can edit. You can categorise into staff, volunteers, board, whatever you want.

I have never used a plugin for staff page. It is easier to build a custom post type and a template. Here are some examples of the pages we have built using the same custom post type and template:

We built an intranet for a client a few months ago. We ended using the WOffice theme ($64) which works with BuddyPress to provide many features as part of a true intranet. There is a directory plugin called Business Directory Plugin (: https://wordpress.org/plugins/business-directory-plugin/  ) which built the staff directory. That's a free plugin that can stand by itself. It all works well.
