A-Z Filter

Description

This component will allow content authors the ability to group, index (by alphabet), sort and paginate content from pages that contain Biography profiles or Mini-Profile components (or Full Time and Adjunct Faculty respectively).Content authors must indicate which type of profile to be displayed in the container.

A-Z looks for the specified profile type and returns a list of all profiles sorted alphabetically (the list content will be different depending on which profile type is chosen). Additionally, it prints letters A-Z links at the top of the page which are used to filter the lists. All letters of the alphabet will be shown, but those without content will be disabled.

The default state will show all profiles in the list. Clicking a letter will show only those profiles beginning with that letter. The active letter will be indicated in red.

If there are more items listed than will fit on a page, the results will be paginated to allow access to them all.

Usage

The component must be configured to present either Full-time faculty or Adjunct faculty profiles.

Full-time Faculty

The component must be added to a content page. This page must be the parent of one or more full-time faculty member pages, which must be based on the Silver Biography template (which in turn, encapsulates a Biography component). With this content structure, the component automatically retrieves full-time faculty member profiles below the page to which it has been added.

Adjunct Faculty

The component must be added to a content page. This page must be the parent of twenty-six alphabet pages (a.html, b.html… z.html), each of which may contain zero or more Mini-profile components corresponding to adjunct faculty members. With this content structure, the component automatically retrieves adjunct faculty member profiles below the page to which it has been added.
