redITEM:Adding users to redITEM
While further functionality is planned for a future release of redITEM, it is possible to add additional information for users with site accounts. This information is stored in their "redITEM User Profile", and is kept separate from other user account information.
A redITEM user profile consists of the profile image and the user's physical address, broken down by street, zip code and city. Profile details can be modified from two places:
- The front end, where the user can edit their own profile details using the appropriate menu item links
- The back end, where the administrator can edit user profiles in the "Users" section.
Managing user profiles admin side
Click on the "Users" submenu link to bring up the Users listing screen. Here is an overview of all the user accounts that have been made on the site, listing each accounts name, username and e-mail address. Two additional columns are displayed, with details filled in only for user accounts that have filled in their redITEM profiles.
Click on the user's name to bring up their profile details page. Once a profile image has been uploaded and / or the address filled in and saved, a checkbox will appear next to that user's name in the Users listing screen. This checkbox is an indication that there are profile details for this account.
To remove profile information from one or more accounts, simply check the boxes of each account and click on the "Remove user data" button. Note: this will only remove redITEM profile details, the user's account will not be affected whatsoever.
