Update and display my user profile

Updated -

Your profile is a great way to introduce yourself to your visitors. Wow your fans with a full-width cover photo, your profile photo, and a description with a little bit about yourself.

It's possible to add your profile to any page on your SmugMug site by dragging our Profile block onto that page.

You'll find the Profile block in your Customizer. Dig in via the Customize menu > Content and Design, then make sure you’re in the Content tab and Social section.

In other words, right here:

Once you've placed the Profile content block onto a page, you'll have many other controls to work with so you can personalize your profile to be just right for your audience.

Profile settings

You can adjust the size, position, and basic layout of the content block from its tool menu. To access the tool menu, hover over the content block until a blue outline appears, then click the wrench icon.

This will open the Profile Settings menu.
