Why does clicking on <Edit your "About Me"> just throw me back to my profile page..which does not let me edit?

Clicking on button should do something sensible

Specifically, what are you trying to edit?

Doesn't matter. Clicking on any button on a web page ought to do something sensible.

I was able to get to the 'About Me' tab by clicking on my blue username. (upper right Welcome_________)

If one wanted to edit the info there, it happens under the User CP control panel. Of course, there are some fields, like post count, that are not user editable. The 'About Me tab is just informational so one can see what the rest of the world sees about the user. At least that's how I see it.

Thanks, Jim -

*Figured it out:

-Click on your blue user name in the top right corner.

-Click on "View your 'About me' as seen by everyone else,"

-Then a new link pops up that says, "Edit your 'About me'" - but it doesn't take you to User CP.

hmm, all of this should be editable from the USER CP

1. click the USER CP link at the top left hand corner
2. click "edit your details"
3. make the changes as appropriate

please let me know if you are unable to make changes here.

You can view your profile information several ways, among them clicking your "Welcome" name in the upper right corner of the page, or clicking you name in one of your posts and selecting "View public profile". The "About Me" tab is one of the tabs in your profile.

When viewing your OWN About Me tab, you can edit several of the fields by clicking on the little pencil icons (
userfield_edit.gif
) beside the editable fields.

There is more information shown for your own profile than you see when viewing somebody else's profile. To see how your profile looks to others, click the View your "About Me" as seen by everyone else link. The information you see there is fixed and cannot be edited. To return to your own "normal" About Me tab where you can edit your data, click the Edit your "About Me" link.

Alternately, you can edit the same data via your User Control Panel (UserCP link in the blue bar near the top of the page).
