Today's Verse

Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

This tutorial is for people who a want to add profile info next to their posts such as an avatar, signature, and location info.
<------




The page for editing your info is here.

The most important thing that can be added to your forum info is your avatar. It is displayed beside all your posts and it is what people will identify you by.

To add an avatar, you can pick one of the default ones, upload one of your own via URL (not recommended unless you know what a URL is). Or you can upload one from your computer (Recommended).

Since the first method is extremely self explanatory, I won't write about that one.



As for the second method (URL), if you don't have a picture uploaded on the internet somewhere such as PhotoBucket, or an online gallery,  this method won't do you any good. But assuming you do have a picture online, and you have it's URL, all you have to do is paste the image URL into the text box.



The last method for avatar uploading is the best in my opinion. All you have to do is click the browse button, and navigate through your computer directories/folders untill you find the picture you want to upload.



Note: It's usually on your desktop.

Easy stuff right?




Now, onto your personal text which is displayed below your avatar. This part is REALLY easy. Just find where it says "Personal Text", and enter your text into the text field.






Another important thing to fill in is your signature. It is displayed below all your posts. People usually put links, a favorite Bible verse, or something that shows your personality.

All you have to do to add a signature, is find where it says "Signature" and fill in the text area. Super easy.






There are other things that can be filled in, this tutorial just covers the important stuff.

Hi!
I need some help with editing my profile.  I am unable to edit anything except my password.  The only thing that comes up under Modify Profile is Account Related Settings.  :-\
Enjoying the wonderful life God has given me!

I believe that you won't be able to make any changes to your profile until you've made at least five posts in the forum.  This change has been made in order to stop spammers from putting links in their signatures, etc. to porn sites and their business ventures.

Ah, that would explain it. Thanks, Pat. :)

Thanks Pat!  I better get posting then!   ;D

Yes, only two to go and then you can edit your profile.  We have been and actually still are being bombarded by spammers and some porn and we just can't have that and had to do this as a drastic measure.  ;)

If you go to your profile settings page, you should see the avatar fields near the top under "Forum Profile Information". It should appear as follows...



If you can see that, click the "I will upload my own avatar" bubble.



Now browse the files on your computer for the picture you wish to use, then upload it.



When the file is uploaded go down to the bottom of the profile settings page, and click the "Change profile" button.

Good luck, and let us know if you have any further trouble. :)
