Editing your profile

Here's how you can edit your profile (name, email, author description, etc.)

To edit your profile details, simply click your username in the profile widget, found on the website header. Alternatively, click here (if you are not signed in, you will be brought to the login page).

This will bring you to the profile dashboard.

Update the appropriate fields and then click the Update Profile button to save all your changes.

Personal Options

  • Toolbar – Please disregard this option as it provides no effect for subscribers
  • Language – Select your preferred display language; this is applied only within the profile dashboard


  • Username – You cannot edit your Username because it is used as your Username during the login process. Even an Administrator cannot change your Username. Usually, no one else ever needs to see your Username
  • First name – Enter your first name in this text box
  • Last name – Enter your last name in this text box
  • Nickname – (mandatory) The nickname is a requirement for every user. It may be the same as your Username or it can be different. If you don’t supply a Nickname, then the Username will be placed in this field
  • Display name publicly as – Select how your name is cited on your blog, from the dropdown list. You can choose from several choices: Nickname, Username, First Name, Last Name, ‘First Last’, or ‘Last First’. If you prefer ‘Last First’, insert a comma after your last name in the Last Name text field and choose the last option from the dropdown list. For security reasons, it’s a good idea to keep this different from your Username

Contact Info

  • E-mail – (mandatory) All users are required to list an email address in their respective Profiles. The email address must be unique for each user. Your blog will use this address to notify you of new comments to your posts and for other administrative purposes. Only other registered users of your blog will have access to this email address. It is never sent anywhere
  • Website – Enter your website address (if you have one)

About Yourself

  • Biographical Info – Enter a short description or profile of yourself here. Depending on your theme, this optional information may be displayed when creating new Posts
  • Profile Picture – The avatar that is displayed is called a Gravatar. A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar. To create a Gravatar, simply go to gravatar.com and sign up. To use your Gravatar within the dashboard, simply add an email address to your Profile that you’ve configured within the Gravatar site and it will automatically display

Account Management

  • New Password – Click the Generate Password button to generate a new Strong password. A password strength indicator will be shown just below the password field
  • Sessions – If you’ve left your account logged in at a public computer or you’ve lost your phone, you can click the Log Out Everywhere Else button to log you out of everywhere except for your current browser
