Default language The default language used when logging in.
HTML editor Choose either TinyMCE or Standard textarea as the editor used on any HTML Content Type Elements.. If custom versions of TinyMCE have been created, these will be available in the list.
Preview channel Sets the channel to preview content. If a default preview channel has been specified in more than one place, the system applies the following logic: 
  1. Check the user profile - if a default channel has been set, this is used.
  2. Check the user's group profile - if a default channel has been set and no default channel is set for the individual user, the group setting is used.
  3. Check the Role customization - if a default channel has neither been set for the individual user, nor for the group(s) the user belongs to, the default channel specified in the Role customization is used.

If no default channel is set at all, the user is prompted to select the desired channel whenever previewing content.

 

If you are using an Extended user details Content Type you may see additional elements. This will vary from installation to installation. If such elements are present populate them with the appropriate information.

Enter any changes, such as a new password, and click Save changes.
