Managing your Profile


Your Profile has 6 tabs that give access to different information. The first 2 are on a horizontal menu as below: 'CPD Entry' & 'Member Area'.

The remaining 4 appear in a dropdown menu when you hover over Profile as below:


 

PROFILE 'ABOUT'



This section is the only aspect of your Profile that will be visible to the public. This section is where you can place text, images, an image gallery and even video content to create an impression of who you are and what you do.



NOTE: Your 'Profile About' is accessible to website visitors via your 'Practice' page from which there is s direct link (pictured right). For more information on setting up your 'Practice' see the 'Add/Modify/Delete a Practice' How To.



To enter text in the 'About' field, use your cursor to click below the slim white line and begin writing. The first time you do this you will overwrite "Share something about yourself..."


The text you enter here will be visible on the website once you 'Make your Profile public' as explained below.


You can edit this field by clicking your cursor on the field and beginning to type.


Single images, image gallery and videos can be added by clicking on the camera icons under the field.






Once you have uploaded your image content you have various adjustment options. Simply click on the image to reveal the adjustment menu. Explore options such as size, alignment, URL link and settings.






NOTE: Once you have entered text or image content, and any time you make adjustments or edit you much complete the process by clicking 'Publish'. If you do not do this you will lose your work.




 

Special note on MAKING PROFILE PUBLIC


This step is very important if you want your ABOUT info to be visible to prospective clients, the practitioner community and visitors to the site. Additionally you will not be able to create ATM Classes or submit workshops unless you have made your profile public. Simply click the 'Make Profile public' button and it will appear in the search functionality of the site.


Access to the RESOURCES area is contingent on 'making profile public'. This is due to the architecture at the back end of the site. We have devised a work around for those of you who would like to remain 'private' yet who are active members of the Guild who need and want full access to AFG Resources.

When editing your Profile (as explained here) change your name to: 'Non-Practicing Member' or 'Private Member' as you see fit.
