For English Faculty and Staff: Keeping the front page whole

Here's how to keep your bio on the front page long, while allowing the system to truncate other stories to "teaser" length.

Go to Administer>Content Management>Post Settings and set the length of the teaser to "unlimited." Re-create your bio in a new page, and save it (remember it's published, promoted to front page, and sticky at the top of lists). Then go back to Post Settings and re-set the teaser length to something like 600 characters. You have to do this each time you make a change to your bio (just go in to the Post Settings, change to unlimited, make the changes, save, then re-set the Post Settings). It's a little complicated, but this way you can prevent the bio from being cropped, which can be misleading.
