How-to: Getting started with Known

Chapter 2

Edit Your Profile and Settings

Edit profile

Changing your profile

You can edit your author profile by visiting your profile page. You’ll find a link to your profile in the top menu bar. Select the “edit” option on your profile page to update the content.

From the edit page, you can update your personal bio or description and upload a new photo to be your user image. You can also change your name on this page and list other websites that you have. You may want to list links to your Twitter profile, your Facebook profile, your LinkedIn profile, another personal website, or a company website.

Account Settings

Updating account settings

You can make changes and adjustments to your user account settings under the “Settings” section of your site.


On the Settings page, you can update your name, your username, your email address, and your password. These fields are required, so you can’t save an account without a name or a username.

Email notifications

This page - accessed from Settings - lets you adjust how frequently you receive site notifications. Site notifications are generated when someone leaves a comment on your content or when someone favorites your content.

If you have used Bridgy to connect your profile to Facebook or Twitter, notifications are also generated when someone likes, retweets, or comments on your content if you’ve sent it to these sites.
