Off topic: Personal tab in profile - what is it for?
Thread poster: xxxInes Cas

Dear colleagues,
What exactly is the “Personal tab” in the profile for?
Why is it that no one uses it? (I’ve had a look at a few profiles but I haven’t seen one where the personal tab is used).
Could I, for example, put photos (of my family, pets) in the personal tab? (How can I do that? Where do I upload the photos?)
Would the agencies/clients see it as unprofessional?

Extra pages for personal use Mar 2, 2007

The tab "PERSONAL" is just another page, to be used for anything you like, but it has been implemented to answer to the need expressed by many to have a separate space for anything not directly related to our professional presentation.

Of course, it can be used for professional content too. It's left entirely to us. For example, I used it for a personal collection of links that I visit often, or that can be useful to some colleagues.

I take this chance to remark that there is another feature, in our profile, that is probably still very little known, and even less usesd.
The site members can setup 3 more pages, very much like the "PERSONAL" page, but in these 3 pages the title can be customized too. Using the profile front page and the personal page (both available to all), and the 3 extra pages, we can make of our profile almost a mini website.

HTML Tutorial Mar 3, 2007

Hi Ines,

To find out how to write and insert pictures in your personal tab, click the 'HTML Tutorial' link that's on the page. It explains the most basic things about programming in html; I found it quite straightforward and helpful.

Best regards,

I've posted up a couple of my photographs in my personal tab, taken from my Flickr site.
