Is there a way to access your profile from one of the menus?  The only way I've been able to figure out how to do it is by pulling up a forum post and clicking on it? 

 

And --

 

Is there a way to see what your public profile actually looks like?  When I pull up my profile, there is a disclaimer that it isn't in the form that the public sees -- but is there some way we can actually see what they see? 

 

TIA

1 Go to your account page. Look for the Public Profile button just under the tabs on the top. Click that and it will take you to your profile.

2 Go to settings then click on Privacy Controls. From there you can set what everyone else sees.

the only thing i've seen posted is that if you log out of PBS, then go to your account page when you're not logged in you'll see the public view of your profile.  (depending on your privacy settings, your buddies may be able to see more.)

Doh -- I must have some kind of aversion to those buttons!  Couldn't find the Notebook one for a week or two, either!  LOL! 

 

I knew the answer would be right in my face.  I hate being right all the time.  ;-) 

 

Thanks!!!

Your welcome. It took me a while to find it too.
