A Profile Editing Breakthrough!

Many thanks to Eloise Elaine Ernst Schneider for helping me work out how writers can edit their own profile. It can be done! What we found was that if you were a registered subscriber to the site and logged in before you filled out the form, that form automatically connects with your username and when you log in again, you can edit it.

I checkmarked that "Let users register" button without really knowing what it would do. Now we know!

So here are a few options:

  1. You haven't completed a profile yet, so you go to the Writers page and find the Register button on the right side. (Note: I only see this option on the full desktop site. I can't find it in the mobile site. ) Create a username and password and then log in and complete the profile form. 
  2. You already completed the profile but there wasn't an option to register when you did, so you go to the site and register now with the same email address that you used on your profile. I will connect the username to the profile with the same email address. (I know, I know. There are already 162 writers that I would need to connect. It was my fault for not having it in place. I'll connect.)
  3. You completed the profile before registering, but you don't want to use the same email address to register, so register with your preferred email address and then you email me at and let me know which username to connect to which profile. 

Another step in the right direction. Thanks for bearing with me! Oh, and at a reader request, I added a Company Name field in the form and I added an Other to the subjects where you can type your own in.


(Note: I thought I published this earlier in the week!)
