We're relaunching BusinessZone on 7 July. Community editor Dan Izzard explains how your user profile will change.
We’ve put community at the heart of the new BusinessZone design.
So, in addition to making BusinessZone generally easier to navigate and better looking, we’ve also also made the site as interactive as possible.
Existing BusinessZone members
When the new BusinessZone launches, there will be some changes to your profile area and to the how your profile looks.
Any content you’ve created will be grouped under the My Content label, including comments, blog posts and notifications.
For several days prior to the launch you won’t be able to post any new content to the site, but will be able to view any existing articles, features and blogs as usual.
Everything that you’ve added will be there on the new site including your comments, blog posts and account settings.
Once the site is fully launched you’ll be able to make changes to your profile, post comments and write blogs to your heart’s content!
Please note that your cookies for the site will not be carried over. So if you had your username and password saved in the browser, these will not be stored and you will need to log in again.
If you can't remember your password, you'll need to click on the ‘I’ve forgotten my password’ link in the login area and we’ll send you a temporary password to log in with, you can then change your password to something more memorable.
Not a BusinessZone member yet?
We've simplified our registration process for new members, including the option to sign in using your preferred social media account.
Once you’ve registered and verified your account, you'll be able to login and access your user profile page.
Your profile page is the hub for any activity you have participated in on the site, including comments, blog posts or features. It's a handy way for you to keep up to date with any feedback you've had from other members too.
You can also list any networking information, such as your social links and website. Any personal information, such as your job title and company details, will be kept private.
Make sure you upload a photo to your profile page - it helps make the site a bit more personal and friendly.
