Post by: Dave on 12 Aug 2007 at 07:49
Members,

You may have noticed the word "Location:" now appears underneath your name next to your posts.

This comes from the Location field in your Profile.

To help others better respond to your posts, it's a good idea to fill in this Location field.

Here's how to do it.

1. Click on Profile in the horizontal menu at top left of every page.

2. Now click on "Forum Profile Information" in the left hand menu

3. Now scroll down to the Location field and enter either your city and country, or your state and country, or even just your country.

4. Then scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on the "Change profile" button.

That's it. Your location will now appear underneath your name next to your posts.

Many thanks to Eddie for suggesting this feature be added.

Dave

Hello All What a great idea the above is, just ask Macka, had he not had a town location on his request I for one would have ignored his plea for parts. But knowing his loc and knowing he would be attending an up coming event,. too easy.          You dont have to show your town just your district, state or country is better than a blank space.
