Highlights are a fantastic feature of our new web site and are used to highlight the efforts of our world-class researchers.
It is a standard web page connected to a researcher’s profile and can include text, images, galleries, embedded videos and social media feeds. See a highlight example with the works.
For researchers who don’t have a highlight already connected to their profile, they will need to submit a request in the Web Support Portal to get one set up. However, for publishers, there is a simple and effective way to showcase a selection of researcher highlights connected to your area on your web pages. This is through the use of a highlight widget.
This little blue box sits in the right-hand column of your page and can hold up to five highlights.
We have recently made some improvements to the way publishers add highlights to a widget, and will be running a workshop on Wednesday 5 February from 10 to 11am at the Huxley library. Register a place in the highlights workshop.
If you can’t make it along to the workshop and would like to know how to add a highlight to a widget, you can view an updated how-to guide.
