Editing my forum profile (20 posts)

    Just a quick question. I want to change the website I have listed for this forum in my profile, but I can't seem to find a place to change it. Am I going crazy? Maybe because I am using an apple computer it is not showing up or something. Does anyone have any helpful advice? Thanks and I apologize in advance if I am an idiot. :)

    Nope, not going crazy (yet) - I can't see that the login details are around for us to alter data.
    It'll be on Matt's list :)

    This is somewhat annoying.
    You can't change the url, the location, your password...
    Basically, you can change nothing... ;)

    I'd like to second this request. When I created my profile I wasn't ready to advertise my URL (www.invisiblejames.com). Now I'd like to, but I can't add it to my profile.

    The sooner it's possible to edit one's profile, the happier many of us will be, I suspect. It should be easy if the developers trust their login security.

    When I signed up, I didn't include the http:// in my url so it doesn't link from my name. I guess I'd like to fix that...

    eeek, when will this be updated? I need to switch URLs ... that one works, but is not a very active site, and I have one I'm a little prouder of. Ah, well.....

    OtherMichael,

    I don't have an ETA on the forum fixes. They are on the To Do list though!

    I was starting to think I was the only person who was too stupid to change something to her profile. ;)
    You've all reassured me...

    Yep - would need that, too. Have a Typo in my web-address and also would like to change my password.

    Same problem here...like to correct my blog address to http://whatever rather than www. whatever.

    You'll see why if you try and click on my user name to the right of here - you get a 404, page not found.

    Hi there,

    I'm sure you all yearn for me telling you that I, too, would love to change my password :-D :-p

    Go into your database table "wp_user" under "user_url" column and change it. This will work, won't it? Not too friendly, but should do the trick for now. Is this the right url?
