When you register with TabiFolk, your profile only has your user name. Let’s spice it up a bit!
To edit your profile, you can click on your name in the top menu and chose Edit from the Profile menu. Alternatively, when viewing your profile, there is an Edit Profile button on the Profile tab.
There are three main parts to the Edit page.
You can edit your basic information on this page. It has three main sections.
Under Identity, you can change your username. This is the name other users will see when you post something. It is always public.
You can let people know where else they can get in touch with you on the Website and SNS tab. Your website will show up on your main profile page on the Profile tab, and SNS links will appear as icons by your profile picture. You can chose if these pieces of information are public, only viewable to your Tabi Contacts, or only to you.
TabiFolk is here to help people connect. One way to do this is to let people know about the places you have been. You can add your current location (you are the local expert!) and places you have been to before. You can chose if these pieces of information are public, only viewable to your Tabi Contacts, or only to you.
A profile photo helps you be more than a generic sillouette, it helps others know who you are!
You can upload a picture from your computer or phone, or take a photo from your phone or webcame if you don’t have an image at hand.
After the picture is uploaded, you can crop it to make it look even better. Clicking Crop Photo will save your image.
You can also delete your image whenever you want.
Hint: If you have a registered Gravatar image, it will automatically be used. You can always change it afterwards.
The cover photo allows you to add some flavor to your profile page. You can upload a file from your computer or phone (for best results, upload an image that is 1950px by 450px or larger).
After the file is uploaded, it will appear on your profile page. On the profile page you can drag the cover photo to ensure the best parts are showing.
You can also delete your current cover photo from this page.
