User's profile image will appear throughout the wiki on the pages that user has contributed to, or have otherwise been involved with. Mainly, user profile image will be shown in the top right corner, if the user is logged in. Clicking this image will open user's personal menu, while clicking the user profile image anywhere else, through the wiki, will lead to user's profile page.


Changing profile image

  • By going to user's profile page (recommended). User's profile page can be reached from user's personal menu, by clicking on "My profile", or directly navigating to "User:{username}" page.

Once there click on the "menu" symbol right of the profile image and navigate to "User image" in the menu. This will open a dialog where user can:

  • Upload new picture
  • Choose existing picture from the wiki or an URL
  • Generate new automatic Avatar
