All right, I want to talk about a frequent section or staff page that we all get asked to make if we do WordPress websites for businesses. I’m speaking of the team member page or the staff page — administration — whatever you want to call it. And for the most part, it kind of stinks, doesn’t it? But the way that we’ve been kind of forced to make these things, it’s either been — I’ve seen a lot of themes on Theme Forest, that that’s like their only call to glory is that whole they can make a cool team page and every part else of the theme sucks.

This plugin is called Team Members, and it adds a team section right into the admin panel, which you can then showcase your staff, employees, people, contributors, anything like that. You add different members to the teams, so you make teams and you add their picture, their position, their bio, and then social links. And you can just reorder them anytime you want or display them — this is the key — display them via short code within any posts or page that you want — and even on widgets and stuff. This was amongst all of the little staff or bio pages that I’ve seen, this was pretty cool. It worked really well. I don’t like that it only has three social links. I think I should be able to make anything that I want as far as different fields and populate them. So for that, I took a point off but otherwise, very good concept, very good execution, very easy to use, and quite simply they had some great instructions that went along with this.

The cool thing about it is it’s actually responsive as well, so that’s a big plus in my book.

It is worth checking out and it does adhere quite well to the existing theme, which not a lot of plugins out there that do those types of things do that. They always look like crap. This one at least will maintain within your CSS and it’s pretty easy to adjust it if you have to. I rated it an 8 out of 10.
