How to add a listing or profile link to your FORUM profile

It’s important to firstly understand that your FORUM PROFILE is different to the profile you have as a member on the main TrustedHousesitters’ website.

Although we do not allow links to profiles or listings in forum topics or posts (see guidelines here), you can easily add a link to your TrustedHousesitter website profile or house sit listing in your FORUM PROFILE.

We would recommend you do this on the desktop version as it’s easier to manage unless you are very adept at using smart devices :slight_smile:

  1. Go to the main TrustedHousesitters website and LOGIN to the DASHBOARD. Here you can PREVIEW your listing or profile and copy (Ctrl + C) the URL in the browser bar, ready to paste it into your forum profile. It will look something like this:

  2. Go to the FORUM and CLICK on your USER ICON in the top right corner - this may be a photo if you’ve uploaded one, or a letter in a circle. Then CLICK on the “head and shoulders” icon and from the drop down menu, select PREFERENCES.

  3. On the left of the screen you will see a further list. Select PROFILE to open up a screen that will show your PROFILE text and other information. You can add a link in the text section and/or you can scroll down to a box labelled WEB SITE.

  4. Paste the URL you copied earlier (CTRL + V) into this box. If you’ve lost the URL, don’t worry, just go back to your TrustedHousesitters dashboard and copy it again.

  5. Once you’ve added this link, don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the screen and select the SAVE CHANGES green button.

    Now anyone who clicks on your user icon, will see your link(s) and be able to make contact by a DIRECT MESSAGE by clicking the green MESSAGE box.

A bit behind in linking to my profile and I have a question :-). As we are nomadic I tend to change my location in my profile, depending on where we are. This location then shows up in the link. Is it possible to change the link every time we change location? Thanks :slight_smile:

Thank you. I’ve been trying to do that for about a week.

@liz @ElsieDownie Yes, I believe you just go into PREFERENCES and PROFILE and put a different location. Give it a try. This software isn’t linked to the TrustedHousesitter software (otherthan to go from one platform to the other and back), so you can pretty much try anything in here without upsetting anything. Let us know if it works, but I’m almost sure it will.

thanks, I’ll give it a try and let you know if it works when we change location :slight_smile:
