Make changes to your blog settings
  1. Paste the web address of your picture into the field labeled URL for my picture. If you want to use a picture from the internet, just paste the URL of the photo here. If you would like to display a photo of yourself, you will need to have already uploaded it into Sakai. You might want to put your photo into the Resources area of Home. Get the web address (URL) of the photo. (You can do this by selecting Edit Details link for the photo once you have uploaded it; the web address will be displayed at the bottom of the page.)
  2. Enter your profile description in the text box. You can format the text using the icons above the text box.
  3. Select Change settings to save your profile and picture.

Note: Your blog profile is not the same as your standard Sakai profile. If you have blogs in more than one Sakai site, you will need to set your profile individually in each site.
