Depending on the configuration of the Profile Page options by your site administrators
there are number of options available to you for customizing the look and feel of your Profile Page.
Profile Page Tabs - All of your various member features and personal content are housed in the Profile Page tab system. The top row of tabs are the system tabs that hold the content that is viewable by other members of the community - your Friends List, Photos, Communities, Groups, Blogs, and Class Notes (if enabled).
The exception to this is the My Activity tab which holds tabs only accessible by you and authorized administrators and holds tabs containing things such as your Instant Notes center, Classifieds and Job Postings that you have added to the site, and your Event ticketing and Campaign History ( if enabled by site administrators.)
View Mode / Edit Mode - When viewing your own Profile Page, the default view is to have all of the content editing options enabled. To view your Profile Page as it will appear to other members, click on Edit Mode(click to view). To go back to the edit view for managing your Profile Page content, click on View Mode (click to edit).
Add Content - There are a wide variety of options for the types of content you can add to your Profile Page. Click on the Add Content links in each of the content cell areas to launch the content windows for adding Member Fields for displaying information about yourself to other members, and for adding Feeds and Widgets to your Profile Page tabs.
Note: You can add multiple pieces of content to the same content cell on your Profile Page tabs.
Drag and Drop
Once you have added your content to the Profile Page tab, you can then drag and drop the content to another position on the tab. Hover your cursor over the header of the particular content piece that you want to move until it turns into a black X with four arrow heads, then click and drag that piece of content to another cell or above or below another piece of content in the same cell
Custom Tabs - To provide yourself more canvasses on which to add content and tell people about yourself and the things you like, click on Add Tab to additional custom tabs to your Profile Page. then use the Add Content tabs to build out the information and content displayed on these custom tabs.
Audience - Use the Audience option for your custom tabs to set who will be able to view the tab - all regular authenticated members, just members of your Friends List, or just as a private tab viewable only by yourself and authorized administrators.
Editing and Deleting Content - Edit and Delete - use the Pencil edit icon to modify any of the Content you have added, or use the red X to remove the content
System Content - You will probably see some content that you are not able to edit, or remove, or perhaps even move around on the tab. This is System Content that has been added by site administrators as required content on Profile Pages, and cannot be modified or removed by members.
Add Tab - Add a custom tab for displaying your Member Fields, Feeds and.or Widgets content. These custom tabs are created, unless otherwise set by site administrators, as blank slates for you to add the content of your choice through the system tools.
Rename Tab - Use this option to rename any of your custom tabs.
Delete Tab - Use this option to delete any of your custom tabs.
Report as Objectionable - Any authenticated viewing member can report content on your Profile Page as objectionable. Clicking on this option and submitting something as objectionable sends an immediate email to site administrators with a link back to the administrative tool to review the content. No judgments, decisions or suspensions of content are made until the site administrators themselves have a chance to make their review.
