Editing your contributor profile

Edit your contributor profile to add or update important information, including your name, avatar image, and additional information.

Tip: Click this link to open your Profile settings, then start with Step 2 below. You may be prompted to log into your account.

Before you begin

  • Only Administrators can edit Basic Author profiles. 
  • To add or remove permissions from a contributor's account, visit Editing contributor permissions.
  • 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 

In the Home Menu, click your avatar.
