To further personalize and enhance your About Page, and entice your audience into your site, you may want to edit your About Page and/or add media to it.

Click the headings below for more on the topic.

Editing the About Page: Sites Created Before Sept. 2020

By default, the About page is set up with a “shortcode” that simply displays the bio and portrait photo you uploaded during registration. If you wish to edit this placeholder content:

  1. Go to the thin black bar at the top of the site
  2. Click “Edit Page”
  3. Delete “bio_shortcode.” NOTE: deleting the shortcode deletes the bio AND photo.
  4. Replace “bio_shortcode” with text and one or more images of your choosing.
  5. Click blue, rectangular “Update” button on the right hand side of the site.
  6. . Once the page has reloaded, it’s been saved and you can work on other pages.
  7. To return to the Front End, go back to the thin black bar at the top of the site and click “View Page.”
  8. After you’d done this, you can edit the About Page like you would a Highlight.

Below you’ll find the “View Page,” “bio_shortcode,” and “Update” locations circled in yellow.

If you encounter any technical difficulties, please submit a help request and we’ll be happy to assist you.
