How do I add research interests?
« on: Thursday 02 March 17 08:29 GMT (UK) »
Hello. Brand new, so pardon my inability. I promise to get smarter every day. How do I add that line that everyone else has? I'd like to include research interests with my posts, but don't see where I add that.

Welcome to Rootschat RedRinglets.

On the dark strip at the top of the screen, click on Profile, then Modify profile, then Forum profile, you will see a box Surname Interests, enter the information you want to display and save.

Hope this helps.

I have the same problem but the solution does not seem to work. the only options I get on "Modify Profile" are Account Settings and Ignore Topics Options. Where can I find the Forum Profile page?

Welcome to rootschat jamyam  :)

I think you may have to have made three or more posts before this wil work, just reply to this a couple of times and then try again, any brief reply will do

Thanks Mike.
This is my second post to se if it works.
Strange that there are no guidance notes to help with this.

And here is the third post.

If it works - great. if not, I guess I can live without displaying my research interests.

Many thanks for your help.
