Help & Tips for Profile Fields
- Your default profile will appear on every new guide/page you create.
- Any of the fields below can accomodate HTML tags. Line break or paragraph tags aren't necessary, but you can add bold or italics tags, links, etc., to customize your information.
|Profile Box Title||
Appears at the top of your profile box.
The title can be anything you want! "Subject Guide", "Reference Librarian", "Master of the Universe"...you get the idea!
Select "Use a file from my computer" to upload an image.
You can only have 1 image for your profile box. You can change it at anytime, but you cannot have different images in different places. Sorry!

Type your name exactly how you want people to see it.
Enter the email address or contact URL for your profile.
If you don't want your email address to be clickable, add it to the Contact Info field instead.
Enter the full URL of your website or blog.
Enter any contact information you wish.
Separate the subjects with commas and the system will make them into searchable keywords!
The system matches on subject categories first, then searches guide titles.
|Chat Widget Code||
Add chat widget code from any external chat product (e.g. Meebo, Library H3lp, QuestionPoint, etc.).
