Hi guys,
occasionally I saw the new feature referral on Astrids page on the left below referring to Derek Gill Franssen. So she did it right.
I went to
SETTINGS > Other settings > referrals
"Profile crosslinking / member referrals are a new feature available on profile pages. Use them to exchange links with members working in other languages or fields, whose work you know to be of a high standard."
WOW! That's great - I thought and HERE WE GO! I have chosen a Dutch colleague.
I entered the
- right ID-number
- Language pair
- Commentar
- switched on "Show this referral"
But if I go to visitors view I dont see no referral. In Owners view I see the box in grey.
What did I wrong? ???

Maybe Branka is referring to the same feature?

Try using the Search function Jun 14, 2006

Hi Steffi,

I added Derek by using the search function throughout, not by manually entering the User ID. I have a feeling it possibly works better that way.

If you see the box in grey in the owner's view, then I think you only need to click on those little arrows underneath to make it become visible.
