How to access
From the Site Control Panel click the icon labeled Edit Profile
The "My Profile" page lists with the ability to edit personal information about you such as, name, username, email, and personal preferences(editors, administrator backend template choice, help, time zone and language settings).
Your Login name, Password, and Email are automatically populated from your initial installation. Here, if desired, you can change or edit those settings. If you change Password please remember that it is case sensitive.
At the top right you will see the toolbar:
The functions are:
- Save. Saves the user and stays in the current screen.
- Save & Close. Saves the user and closes the current screen.
- Cancel/Close. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
- Help. Opens this help screen.
If you have several users with Backend access, it is here where a user can select their own Administrative template for the Backend.
If multiple languages are installed, you can select the language you want to use as the default language when you log in.
Many users will install more than one editor and here is where you would select your default editor if different from the site's default editor listed under Global Configuration. If you use an extension such as Editor Switcher, then you would in addition to setting the Editor setting to Editor Switcher here, you would go to the Plugin manager under the Extensions tab and open Editor Switcher and select the default Editor you would want to use.
Another important setting is the setting for Time Zone so your site is synchronized to the time zone you are in.
