Editing your contributor profile

Edit your contributor profile to add or update important information, including your name, profile picture, and additional information. Your profile's information may display:

  • Picture - At the bottom of the Home Menu in any site you're logged into.
  • Name - On blog posts you've written, both on your own site and sites where you have contributor permissions.
  • All information - In author profiles.

Before you begin

  • Only contributors can edit their own profiles. Administrators can edit or remove permissions for their site's contributors, but can't edit their profile information.
  • Only Administrators can edit Basic Author profiles.
  • If you update your email address, you'll use the new address to log into your account.
  • Changing the name in your profile will also change the name as it appears in all blog posts published under your name.

Step 1 - Open your profile 

Option 1 

Click here to open your Profile settings. You may be prompted to log into your account.

Option 2

  1. Log into your site.
  2. In the Home Menu, scroll down and click your profile picture or initials.
  3. In the Account Dashboard, click Account Settings, then click Profile.

Step 2 - Edit your profile information

In Profile settings, you can:

  • Edit your name. Since some areas use the First and Last name instead of the Display name, we recommend using the same name in both sections.
  • Upload a profile picture. Profile pictures must be in .jpg, .gif, or .png format only. 
  • Add a bio and website URL, which may appear in author profiles.
Note: Changes to your profile may take a few minutes to appear on your site.
