Updating your profile on our website www.cgs.org.uk
It is important as a member of CGS that your profile on our website is kept up to date, do log in using your username and your password, which can be reset if you have forgotten it, and check that everything is correct.
Use the ‘Edit my profile’ link at the very top of the page and click through the tabs, saving any changes before you move onto the next tab. It is really important that you have a short written profile. The last tab is Permissions, you can say here what details you want shown or not shown on the website, we do recommend that you either have your email or website, so that people can contact you if they wish to do so. All changes now go live immediately, no more waiting for approval. So if you find you haven’t got it quite right, go back and make changes.
You can up load up to 10 images and to ensure you are making best use of the site, it is very important that you have at least one image.
The first image will randomly appear on the home page so it should be your best image and its size should be; 575 wide x 462 high pixels at 72dpi. All images should be around this size, but the website will resize them automatically as long as they are not too large files over 8mb. You can also move the images around using the cross to the left of the image, click & drag to the order you want them in.
This way you can change the home page image from time to time, very easily.
Once your have finished do log out and take a look at your details in Members Directory, if something isn't right, just log in again and make the change remembering to save any changes at the bottom of the page.
If you have any problems contact firstname.lastname@example.org
