Add Staff

You can add new staff members through Staff → Add New Staff Member in the WordPress Administration Panel.

The Staff → Add New Staff Member screen

Staff members contain most of the same options as standard posts. You can read about these in the Add New Post chapter. Additionally, they contain post options specific to staff members.

Staff Options

Staff Options are found below the editor on the Edit Staff Member page. If the Staff Options are not visible, make sure they are checked inside the Screen Options area at the top.

If you are adding a new staff member, make sure you have saved the post before editing staff options. Otherwise, the staff options will not be visible.
