Profile Page

Show and hide different sections on your collective page.

As an admin, all sections will appear in your view, with invitations to add content.

However, any sections without content will not appear to other users (for example, Updates and About).

To update your logo image, hover over it and click on Edit logo, or simply drag an image file onto the logo area.

All logos are displayed on a white background, so white logos will not be visible. If you want to use a white logo, upload an image with a colored background instead of a transparent one.

Set Main Color

Your main color determines the color of links and buttons, tier cards, and the hero header if no image is set.

Click on Edit main color in the header area to set the color.

Set Cover Image

To change your cover image, click on Edit cover. By clicking on the image, you are able to move it around. You can also zoom in and out as you like. The optimal image size for a cover image is 2736x650.
