Creating a Projects Page

Creating a projects page is a convenient way to post your group research projects in one easily accessible location.

 Video example

First create a "Projects" Page by adding a new page in Panels. (see Creating Custom Pages for additional instructions).


When your page is set up and named, click the "Edit content"  link to the right of the title of your "Projects" panel page.



You will be taken to a page that shows the regions of your panel page. Click on the gear icon in the upper left corner of a region.

The "Project" widget works best if placed in the Top or Bottom region of your panel page display settings due to its horizontal layout.


Select "Add content" from the dropdown menu.


This will take you to a page where you can add widgets and custom content.

There are 3 widgets associated with Group Projects content.

  1. Research Projects, All [group] - All projects associated with your group
  2. Research Projects, Archived [group] - Archived projects associated with your group
  3. Research Projects, Current [group] - Current projects associated with your group

Click the "Research Projects, All [group], Research Projects, Archived [group], or  Research Projects, Current [group]widget link - which is found under the left menu item called “Widgets, group menu-items”. This will insert the widget into the chosen panel-page region (top or bottom).


A new page will launch with a "Finish" button. Click the "Finish" button to insert the widget. Only one widget at a time may be added using this process.

Click the "Save" button at the bottom of your panel regions page to set your changes.

Initially the "Projects" page will read "no projects found".

Linked project titles will display on the "Projects" page in a table as group members add projects (Further instructions to members about contributing projects can be found in this tutorial at Creating a Group Project).

Clicking on the linked project title will lead to the individual project page (which will appear as below).
