Account settings

The ‘Account settings‘ tab allows you to change your email address and your password. It is recommended that the first time you log in you change your password. The ‘Account settings‘ tab also allows the user to add a picture to their user profile. To do this, simply click the ‘browse‘ button, and browse to the image you would like to add.

The system has been set to automatically resize the image so that the longest side (.i.e. landscape or portrait orientation) will be no larger than 200 pixels in length. The system will also automatically place your image in the top right hand corner of your user page. Once you have made any changes to the fields on the ‘Account settings‘ tab, click ‘Submit‘ to save them.

To remove your user image, simply click on the ‘Edit‘ tab, scroll down to ‘Picture‘, tick the ‘delete‘ box of the image to be deleted, and click ‘Submit’.

A new image can now be inserted if you wish.

***NB*** After adding a new image, you may find that the old image is displaying rather than the new. This is not a bug, but your Internet browser reloading the file from its cache. To force the browser to load the new image, simply hold down your SHIFT key, and click ‘Refresh‘ or ‘Reload‘ on your browser. This only needs to be done once.

No other fields should be changed on the ‘Account Settings‘ page.

The ‘Name‘ and ‘Surname‘ fields should be obvious.

The ‘Specialities‘ field is where you list your specialities. Put each item here on a separate line or separate them by commas.

The ‘About Me‘ field is for general biographcial information, and the ‘Publications and Research‘ field is for just that.

Once all changes have been made, click ‘Submit‘.
