Sometimes when I go to others profiles, I see a big blue box with some words on the top right hand of the screen.  I want this box on my profile.  How do I go about creating it?

I think I've seen them on both!  I've also seen the box when I was trying to order a book and it was right above the "order more from this member" button.

Go to yur bookshelf. Click on Edit my Public Header.

I think that's the one you're  asking about.

There are two, one is your profile, the other is your bookshelf header.  And you reach them differently.  The profile is under settings.  It shows up when folks click on your name, like on a PM form.

The second, which is what it sounds like you are asking about, is your bookshelf header.  Go to My Bookshelf.  There are two buttons on top, Edit my Public Header and View my Public Header.  This one shows up on the order more from this person page.  It's great way to list offers and unpostables.  It is also a great place to mention stuff like pets and smokers.  Think of it as your PR spot to encourage ordering multiple books.

I knew the one box was on the bookshelf but I have never seen a blue box on the right on the profile.

Thanks!!  I got the bookshelf one.  I'll modify it later, but I'm excited to have one up:)

I still want the profile one but can't seem to find it.......
