Since we are newly launched and just learning I thought it would be great to make a discussion area where we can help each other out with Tips and Tricks for using Starch-Smart. TAGS: One thing that comes to mind is that there are "Tags" for the blogs and discussions that can be used. They help people later find content based on those tags. Subscribe to Blog Authors: If you find a blog author that you lke you can subscribe to be notified whenever that person posts a blog. You do this from a little box that appears below the blog post. First you will need to read the entire blog since that box is below the blog but not below the little introductory text. The link you are looking for says: Subscribe to updates from author. Blogger Biographies: If you are going to blog then you should set up a biography with a photo and some text about who you are! that will help people connect with you. First you have to do the following: Go to any blog page Make sure you are logged in to the system Click on the pencil icon to start a "New Blog Post" (this is not intuitive) Then click on the Gear at the top right of "Your Dashboard" in the blog editing screen. Then click on "Edit your settings". You are now editing your Bio and can add an image. More to come shortly!

Blogs with Images are best:
If you upload an image for your blog then that blog will also be rotated through the lastest blogs section on the home page at https://www.Starch-Smart.com and hopefully will get better exposure. We also automaticaly post all of the blogs to the Starch-Smart facebook page. And, those really look good with images!

Private and Shared Images:
You can put up your own private images while blogging or you can contribute or use some of the shared images. Currently we have some in a folder called Avatars. But, hopefully the shared library will grow

Permalinks:
Each time you create a blog or a discussion the title is converted into a Permalink which is the web path that will be used for the page. If you decide to change the Title it is a very good idea to also delete the Permalink. Upon save the system will create a NEW Permalink based on the new title. Search engines like when Titles and the Permalinks resemble each other.

Adding or Changing Avatar Image and Profile Background Image
Everybody that creates an account here and does not upload a personal image will look like a nut; a walnut to be exact! We had to pick an image for the default image and for some reason, known only to me, I picked a walnut. It might have had something to do with Omega 3 and the similarity of a walnut to a mini-brain! :-) If you don't like a walnut avatar we have dozens of other plant-based food images you can choose from. But, the best, by far is when you upload your own personal image and background image. We also would like to see everybody upload their own images!

So, How to personalize your social network profile images!
There are two ways to change your Personal Image and your Background Image:

1) From your "Edit Profile" link in the login pulldown menu (Allows you to select one of our images):
1) Login to the site at the "Home Page" or the "Social Page"
2) From the "Home Page" or the "Social Page" Click on the login pull-down menu to select the option to "Edit Profiles"
3) Click on the "Appearance" link in the left hand column
4) Change Your Personal Photo:
In the" Profile Picture" space Click on the "Browse" button to navigate to, and upload, an image from your computer or Click on the "Select avatar from gallery" button to use one of our images.
5) Change Your Background Image:
In the" Profile Cover" space Click on the "Browse" button to navigate to, and upload, an image from your computer.
6) Click on the Save button at the bottom of the page.

2) From your "My Profile" button: (Requires you to upload images):
1) Login to the site at the "Home Page" or the "Social Page"
2) From the "Home Page" or the "Social Page" Click on the link for "My Profile".
Note: You must be logged in to access the "My Profile" page.
3) Change Your Personal Photo:
Click on the text that says "Edit Avatar" at the bottom of the Avatar (personal photo space)
to open up a menu with options to 'Upload avatar', 'Choose from photos', or 'Remove avatar'. From here you can upload a photo from your computer or pick one you previously uploaded.
4) Change Your Background Image:
Click on the text that says "Edit cover" at the top right hand corner of the Background Image to open up a menu with options to 'Upload Cover' or 'Choose From Photos'. From here you can upload a photo from your computer or pick one you previously uploaded.
