Account Settings

Your username must be unique. You can change your username by typing in a new one into the username field and following the instructions that appear. Your username will display next to any posts you make in the forums.

Email Address
Required. You may change this, but note that email addresses cannot be shared among accounts. That is, one email address cannot be registered with multiple accounts. You will need to confirm by email when changing your email address.

Note: Although your email address will not be displayed publicly on, when you comment on any site while logged into your account, the e-mail address will be visible to the site’s owner/administrator.

Primary Blog
Choose which blog you want to be your primary blog. If you only have one blog there will be no dropdown.

Web Address
Not required. The full URL of your main website or blog. The Web Address will be the link used for your Public Display Name when you leave comments on sites or in the forums. Changing your Web Address will not affect the link on existing comments; it will only change the link for future comments you leave.

Interface Language
Set the primary language of your administrative screens. To set the language of your actual blog, go to your blog’s General Settings.

In-page Translator
Turning this option on will enable an in-page translation tool where available. It can be used to help translate the interface.

It wouldn’t be any fun if we told you what this does. Just try it out for yourself and see what happens.

Instant Post Feedback
Check this option if you want to see instant post feedback when you publish new posts.

Remember: If you make any changes to your Account settings, be sure to click the Save Changes button at the bottom!
