    Return to Main FAQ Page

    The toolbar can be found by clicking "My Account" in the top right corner of the website. The page it takes you to is the "View" option, which allows you to see your profile how others do. It is located below your name and above your rank/picture. The toolbar is probably the best resource for editing your WSO profile. It contains links to almost all of the customizations available, and includes: View, Edit, Invitations, Notifications, Track and Community.

    • View
      • Overview: The "View" option is automatically pulled up when you click on "My Account".
      • Features: This option allows you to see your profile as others do, with the exception that you can see your own private information (like salary, bonus and employer), you can see the "Edit Profile Info" button and you can see the toolbar.
      • View My Blog: This will take you to your blog posts. If you don't have a blog, feel free to try it out by clicking "Post New Blog Entry"
      • View My Groups: Any group you join will show up in your Groups.
    • Invitations
      • Accepted: Lists the people who have accepted your invitation to WSO
      • Pending: These are people you've sent an invitation to join WSO, but have not yet responded. If the Status says Deleted, that means the user account has been terminated from WSO
      • Expired: If an invite is not accepted within 30 days, the invitation will expire
      • New Invitation: You can send someone an invitation here. The site will automatically fill in your email address, but it will let you create the Subject and Message you'd like to send

      • Subscriptions: Lists your current subscriptions with a number of options for editing them
      • Group: This shows your Group subscriptions and gives you options for if/how you'd like to receive them
    • Track
      • Track Posts: You can track your created threads and replies by selecting this option. Note that it is not in the chronological order of the threads you've commented on, but rather which thread that you've commented on has been replied to most recently by any user
    • Community
      • Nonfunctional: The Community option is currently not active. Check back later to see if it has launched!
