We have just added new features based on Ed's feedback (and some good encouragement by Raus!):
1. Upload Personal Photo
-- now you can upload a photo of yourself to appear on your Road Profile page
. Here's how:
[list:30dbf57ae3][*:30dbf57ae3]While logged in, go to your Road Profile (Account) page and click on the Edit Profile
[*:30dbf57ae3]Click the Photo/ Avatar
[*:30dbf57ae3]You will see a list of options. From the drop down box that says "Upload or change my..." select Personal Photo
[*:30dbf57ae3]Enter a caption for your photo in the first box, then choose an upload method:
[*:30dbf57ae3] lets you upload from your computer --OR-- Option 2
lets you enter the URL (full web address) of a photo already on a website IF you have at least 10 digihitch miles.
[*:30dbf57ae3]After you have either browsed your computer for the photo (Option 1
) or entered a full URL of an online photo (Option 2
) click the Save Photo
[*:30dbf57ae3]If all went well, you will see your new photo on the page. Clicking it will show you a bigger version of the photo. If there was an error
, you will be told what went wrong. Make sure to double-check
the size of the image you want to upload BEFORE starting. Photos that are too big will be automatically rejected. (Info on what is too big is on the page.)
2. Choose your gender
to show up in forum posts and in your road profile. See how it looks by checking out one of my forum posts
. Here's how to add your gender:
[list:30dbf57ae3][*:30dbf57ae3]Follow the first 2 steps above, getting to the Photo/ Avatar
tab, then select Gender Icon
from the drop down box.
[*:30dbf57ae3]Check the button next to the gender you want displayed.
[*:30dbf57ae3]By default, everyone starts with NOYB (None of Your Business). If you keep this selected, your gender will not show in forum posts or your road profile (not even the NOYB icon).
[*:30dbf57ae3]If you changed your gender, click the Save Gender
[*:30dbf57ae3]You will now see your new gender icon at the bottom right of the page, below your current photo and avatar.
Still working on some more new features. We'll announce them soon. In the meantime, hope to see a lot of digihitchers adding a photo!
