What is my profile?  How do I edit my profile?

Think of your profile are your virtual introduction, or elevator speech, to the rest of the forum.  Its also a one stop shop for those members who want to see what you've been up to on FJ.

Items in teal are editable or optional fields.  Those in black are not.

Your profile info is populated by what you've entered in the Edit Profile Field and your activity on FJ.  (On profile screen in the upper right of cover photo and on main site in user link information > edit profile.). You can enter and much or as little optional info about yourself as you'd like.

Cover Photo:  this is the horizontal background photo behind your profile photo.  See FAQ on cover photo for instructions on how to upload and position.  Due to the configuration of the field background type images work great, as do anything which can be positioned to center in the space.

Profile Photo:  this is your avatar.  See change avatar FAQ for instructions.
