Converting User Profiles to UC People

The University User Profiles plugin continues to work, and will be supported for existing sites. However, it will not be available in newly made sites, or any site that uses any theme released after Hale 2015. Sites that wish to upgrade to a newer theme will need to convert their UUP content to UC People.

  1. Follow the instructions for Importing Users to UC People. This will create a “person” for every public user.
  2. Create a People Page to replace each User-List and User-Table page that you had used previously.
  3. If you created profile pages for each user, you want to find those within Pages and then either change their status to ‘draft’ or delete them. This is just to avoid duplicate entries for each person.
  4. Fix any broken links to profile pages, replacing them with the new links to each person.
