Setup a Member Variable
To do this go to member variables page (/admin/membervariables) and add a member variable for the about me section
Add it to a Page
Inside of an editable WYSIWYG section of a page add the code ~var
where you want the content to appear. Be sure to get the correct code where # is replaced with the number of the member variable. You can get the correct code either from the member variables page or from "View/Info" -> "Dynamic Info (~~)" in the page editor.
Test it Out
Go to the members page (/admin/members) and login as a member
. Go to their profile (/admin/profile) and enter a value for their about me section. Then view the member's page where you added the member variable ~~ code and you will see the content there.
Go to Advanced Features
From there it is about half way down under the section "Member Spotlight".
When turned on you have the option to select the member and enter a description. The member's name, profile image, and description will appear on members area home page (/admin) for all of the members. If it does not appear then the code ~memberspotlight~
needs to be added into the html template file for the page located at /uploads/adminpages/index.html
, there is a section called "Manage Email Templates" where you can create email templates to use multiple times.
Once you've added an email template, you can use it by clicking the red email icon in the editor.
The easiest way, is open a support request
to have an ~announcements~
tag added to the members area home page (/admin/account.php). Then, you can easily edit it yourself using an WYSIWYG editor by editing announcements on edit pages
(/admin/editpages). It won't cost more than the $5 minimum doing it this way. By default systems already come with announcements setup on the members area home page. If you want it changed (moved, enlarged, etc) it costs the same amount to have us do it for you.
The other method is to use the file manager
to edit /uploads/adminpages/index.html
and put either the content there or add ~announcements~ there yourself:Learn more about editing members area pages.
