User Profile - About Me

Dec 29, 2008 at 1:24 AM
Just wondering what the point is in the "About Me" section of the User Profile... or all of the user information for that matter.  I can't see anywhere in the BE project where this information can be viewed... either by visitors or bloggers.

Thanks in advance.

Generally,tThe theme creator will decide what to use for the design. The information is available to be used on any page that wants to use it, but none of the core blog engine pages use it. I rearranged the theme I was using to better expose non-core pages and an About Us page became one of those pages. I then created an AuthorView control to list all the people that have profiles. The about me text is used in that instance. If you'd like to see it working, it's here. The page uses the same theme as the blog engine so it pretty general. I'd be willing to give you the code if your interested. Hope this helps.

That looks awesome, I'd love to get that off of you.  If you like you can use the contact page at my blog and attach the attachment.  Otherwise I can send you a PM with my email info.

Hi SirDarquan,

your About Us page looks very good.  can you send me the code of this page/control?. Is there any feature like this in 1.5 version?

Thanks,

Roberto
