Profile Albums and Customize Profile

If you are a member of another of our sister sites, then you're probably familar with both of these new features just added to POF. I've been waiting on a bug fix to enable both of these features here. Nick just updated vB, which is the forum's main software, and this has fixed any problems we've had in the past hindering us from enabling these features.

Profile Albums:
You'll now have this thing called profile albums. This is where you can store images directly to your profile in albums. You can use these to display images in your posts or PMs. The nice thing about this is that you can create a special album to upload images to use to customize your POF membership profile.

How to get started wtih albums:
  • Just go to Pictures & Albums ,which is located on your profile right column or in your UserCP, then click on Add Album.
  • You can then add a title for the album
  • Description for that album
  • Then pick an "Album Type:"
    • Public
    • Private - Only visible to contacts and moderators <-this option isn't working. Everyone can still view your images. Waiting on a bug fix.
    • Profile - Pictures used to modify your profile style <-You'll want to pick this option to use those images as your profile background images.
  • Once you have an album created, you can then begin uploading images to that album.
  • You can upload up to 10 images at once.
  • Image size is 600x600 pixels max and 100000 bytes.
  • You can upload up to 10 images per album

Now that you've got some images uploaded to use for your profile's background, we can begin with customizing your profile.

Customize Profile:
Let's start by going to your UserCP and clicking on Customize Profile. This will take you to the options page to customize your profile on POF. Background images must come from your albums.

The following is customizable:
  • Text font, size, and color
  • Border size, style, and color
  • Background color or add an image as your background
  • Plus, multiple areas of your profile which you can customize
There are the options of save your work or preview your work before you save. Preview will bring up a picture of what your profile will look like with your current settings.

To add an image for your background:
  • Just leave the color for your background blank.
  • click the icon which will bring up a box with your images stored in that album you've designated for your profile images.
  • Click which image you want
  • Then save.

It'll probably take some trial and error to get your profile the way you want it to look. Don't get frustrated. Just keep playing with the settings till you are happy with the way it looks.
We hope everyone enjoys these new features to POF!

Very nice. I'll definitely play around with this when I've got some free time. The albums especially look like a very nice addition.

Thank you for the updates Batleth!
