Account Settings (Pro): Edit the default link for your name and avatar

 Edit the default link for your name and avatar


In the publisher profile section of your paper, your name and avatar are shown.  When a visitor clicks on your name or avatar, the default hyperlink is your publisher profile page.  Your publisher profile page shows your profile information and all papers you have under your account.  

To see an example of what your publisher profile page looks like, click on either of the images below.

If you would prefer to link your name and avatar to your own website, linkedin page, blog, or any other page, you can edit this default link by visiting your Account Settings > Publisher profile.


  Editing the default link requires at least one Pro paper subscription under the publisher account to unlock this option for all your papers.

Editing the default URL will also apply to your "news sharer" information (below) that's shown when using the bookmarklet.  Once you've entered a URL in the custom field, clicking on your name and avatar will bring the visitor to the URL you entered.  

Any URL customizations will apply going forward and do not apply to the news sharer information shown under past content added in your paper using the bookmarklet.
