Profile Pages - Widget FAQs and Tips for Setting Up Your CafeMom Page

How do I add a Background to my Page?

 


To add a background, click on 'Privacy+Settings' at the very top of every page.  Then, on the left,  click on 'Customize Homepage'.   

You can choose different layouts for your background and change the fonts and colors on your page. 

There are many different widgets that you can add to your page, too.

 

What is a Widget?

Widgets are the boxes on your page.  Some are already on your page, like the widget for friends, photos, journals, the chatterbox.  There are other widgets that are a lot of fun like the widgets for music, slideshows, guestbooks, tickers, photo puzzles and games.

To add a widget to your homepage or your profile page, click the "Add a widget" button that is underneath your profile picture on your homepage. 

When you get to the Widget Directory, pick the category that you are interested in, and then look through the different widgets available. Choose a widget and follow the instructions to add the widget to your page. 

To move the widgets on your page, click on the title bar and drag it to the place where you'd like it.  Some widgets are too big to be moved into the right column.  Your homepage and profile page have their own widget layouts so each page will need to be rearranged separately.

To remove a widget from your page, click on the X in the upper right corner of that widget box.

Every widget that you have on your profile page can have its privacy controlled. Click the "Edit" button at the top-right of the widget and you can control who sees that widget.


You'll find detailed instructions for adding widgets to your page in the replies below.



We recommend visiting the CafeMom Group... 

Toadily Grand Slammin Profiles



Most Widgets are very easy to add to your page.

For help adding Widgets, scroll down to see the replies below.

Anytime you have a question, problem, or suggestion for CafeMom, feel free to click on the "Contact Us" link (at the very bottom of every page).
