Can I change my user name

Post by julie_cropper_01 » Tue Dec 05, 2017 8:15 pm

Is there a way to change the user name you initially registered with. I would like to be able to just tell people to search for my name Julie Cropper rather than julie_cropper_01 that I registered with. I have tried to search for myself under julie_cropper_01 but nothing at all comes up. If you search for mike brown then load come up. Am I doing something wrong in the search and where if it can be done can I change my username.

Hi Julie, you can change your username under account settings

If you change the search criteria to users then you’ll come up. If you want to come up under a photos search then you need to tag your photos with your name

I have tried to change from julie_cropper_01 to Julie Cropper (space between first name and surname) and all I keep getting is a message in a red box saying 'The username field can only contain letters and numbers' and will not let me change it. Am I doing something wrong I am also trying to change the Channel Title to the same as well but can' seem to do it.

Plus as for putting my name in tags on a photo I tried that as well and then did a search but it only showed on photo and not say all three that I tagged to see how it works.

Sorry to be a pain but I am in no way technically minded.

I have clicked on the update button by the way.

Yea you can't have a space in-between words. I will see if this can be addressed in a later update
tags don't update instantly, however, the only way of getting your photos to show up in a search is by tagging them with the search terms you want them found under Julie
