How to add your first name to profile

Post by DianeB » Sat Jun 04, 2016 9:29 am


Many times, we get to know each other and want to share our first name. Some, like me, use it as their username. Others prefer to have a less personal username.

If you have a desire to share your real first name on the Forum, I have set up a field where you can add it. Keep in mind that it is visible to anyone who reads on this Forum, even guests. So choose it only if you are comfortable. I would strongly advise that you do not use your last name to maintain anonymity.

To add your first name:
  • Go to your User Control Panel
    Select Profile
    Select Edit Profile
This is the screen print of mine: (no it doesn't show in red. Color is for illustration purposes)


It will also show in your Contact name when you post or reply to a topic: (It is shown off to the right of the post/reply)


Hope you will find this helpful.

with Love
