My Profile Atom
Configuring the Atom
When you edit a My Profile Atom you will be presented with this screen where you can configure the settings.
These settings are:
Enable Forum Features - If this box is checked then this allows the user to see their interactions with any forums.
Enable Social Features - This will allow the user to see their social interactions with other users.
Enable Username Change - Allows the user to change their username.
Enable Password Change - Allows the user to change their password.
Privacy Controls Enabled - When this box is checked the user can set some of their information as private.
Account Page - This field specifies which web page the user will be sent to when they click My Account. This can be any webpage but should contain their account information.
Viewing the Atom
Once the settings have all been chosen as required, any user that views the My Profile Atom will see this screen (all the settings were ticked in this atom).
Usually there would be the users personal information in the boxes but this has been removed for the purposes of this help file. The important thing to note here is the bullet points on the left which each link to a page of the My Profile Atom as detailed below. On most of these pages are the Cancel and Save buttons which, unsurprisingly, cancel and changes and save any changes respectively. The top bullet point (blank in this case) will be the Avatar for that user. The tick boxes next to some of the information in the My Profile Atom, if ticked, set that field as private information. These boxes are only shown if Privacy Controls Enabled is ticked in the atom settings.
Personal Information - This is the screen above and is the one shown by default. All of this information, except the Display Name, can be set as private.
