Title: Edit user profile not possible
Post by: avandalen on Jun 15, 2009, 03:19 pm
It is not possible to edit my user profile anymore, who can repair this? There is no "edit profile" link on the forum page.

I just asked this question about a week or so ago.

At the top of the screen where it says "Good Evening avandalen, you have 0 messages", click on the word "messages".

Good luck!

Thanks, it works.
However it is very hard to find because "messages" is not underlined, how can I know that this is a link? Who can fix this?

Clicking the link gives me error messages saying 'cannot not edit .. this person's profile.'

Well, please shed me light on this problem.
Thanks.

Bryan.

The link provided takes you to Avandalen's profile - since you're not him, you're not allowed to edit it.

That's why I prefer to tell people to click on "messages".  Takes them to their own profile.

This is because all of the forum user's pleas with the Arduino Team to get the BB software changed has fallen on deaf ears.   :(

Should be easy from here: http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?action=mycenter

Well, one more noob question:

Will it be necessary for me to register as a user in the YABB forum-a root forum-, separately, in case I'd like to edit my profile in this Arduino forum -sort of sub-forum-?

Thanks.
