    Default Cant seem to 'Customise my profile'...help!

    Hello fellow members...

    I've been a member for a couple of months now, you all seem so lovely, and i'm enjoying reading, learning and chipping in here and there to Pearl-Guide.

    I'm feeling that I need a topic-appropriate name (so, i'd like to change it), and would also like to add a profile pic. However, I've tried on two different PC's and also on my IPad...and I can't do it...the page seems to drift off to the side, so I can't reach the buttons!!

    Can anyone suggest anything?
    Helen

    Hi Helen..the backstage part of these forums is a labyrinth! It took me ages to work out how to post a profile pic (called an avatar though I'm not sure why it's called that since an avatar is a hindu deity descended to earth)
    And your name is fine!

    Hi Helen,

    Maybe send a private message to Kevin Canning (Pearls of Joy)? He know the behind the scenes stuff and is an admin here. I think one of the other admins is having major computer issues right now, and might not get your message.)

    I use my real name, which works out fine for me, but if you want to change, would just hope you don't pick a "pearl- or pearly-" as we have plenty of those already!

    Nice to have you here~

    Click the notification tab at the top and go into your private messages folder. While in there, a column will appear on the left with all the links you need to customize your different profile fields. That's the easiest way I know to get to where you need to be.

    I've rated this 5 star and hope one of the admins will make it a sticky~
