How do i reorder multiple profiles on page?

We have guides which were created by one of our libguides administrators. In addition to this administrator, another administrator can edit, as well as the librarian liaison for department. So, a total of 3 profiles appear. We would like the profile for the department liaison librarian to appear first. Is there any way to reorder multiple profiles in a LibGuide?

Here's a bit of background: the default order in which profiles will appear on a page is:

  1. Original Guide Owner
  2. Guide Co-Owner(s)
  3. Guide Editor(s)

If you want to change this behavior, what you can do is make use of the "Profile" box-type. The steps for this would involve:

  1. Select "Hide Profiles on this page"
  2. Click "Add Box"
  3. Select the "User profile Box" box-type (toward the end of the list)
  4. In your new box, click "Select User Profile" - select the profile of the 1st user you'd like to appear
  5. Repeat for the rest of the profiles that you'd like to appear on the page

The alternative (based on the default order in which profiles appear) is to make the person you want to appear first the Guide Owner (instructions for sys admins here:, then make the second person you want to appear a Co-Owner, then the next person a guide editor.
