    Is it possible to edit the account information on your profile?

    Yes, just click on your name on the top right hand corner of the website and you should see a drop down with a list of various options in which you can change your profile.

    Hi Ian,

    I am able to go on my profile page and click on the information tab. But I can't seem to change any of the details.

    Thanks

    Rob

    Hover the mouse cursor over your name and use the links in the drop menu to go to the individual editor page.

    Don't click through to your profile, just use the links (that don't really look like links) that are in the menu panel that appears on hover, Preferences, for example takes you to http://www.webdesignforum.com/account/preferences

    Though quite why the XenForo developers did not make the profile ALSO link to these URLs is somewhat baffling

    I've tried that, I can't see one for signature and one for editing your own website URL

    Yes it's more than likely a problem with the permissions, I have made a note to look into this.

    Seems all fine Ian, thanks for sorting it. I tried to add a signature but is said it was 20 characters too long.
