Access to Forum Profile
« on: Wednesday 30 October 13 16:24 GMT (UK) »
Anyone have any ideas?

When I am logged in and hover my mouse over Profile the drop down only shows
Summary and Account Settings.  There is no Forum Profile.  The same occurs if I access from the icon to the left of a posting.  I've tried using Window IE and Firefox and also Apple via Safari.  I only wanted to update My Signature.....

All suggestions welcome.

Thanks.

you are probably regarded as a non-person till you have a few more posts !

It certainly applies to using the PMsgs feature and certain types of posting ... answer this and then see if its changed?

Yes, now that Lostris has mentioned it that looks about right.  :)

I knew that someone would come up with an answer!

You should now be able to see another option to edit your profile now that you've made another post.

PS Looking at it now, it appears that you have managed to edit your signature - so well done!

Having joined only today, I have the same problem.  Took me a while to find this, but it's a very useful tip.  Thanks very much.
