It would be great to have link from our profile here to our pixoto page.. so many times I am curious to see a fellow togs photos.. and it would be so very nice for you to put in a link so we can go directly to their page.. or at least give us an option that we 'can' link to our pixoto page if we want to.

If you click your name here it takes you to your profile- and Sherry told me that you can enter a website there.... so enter your pixoto site... www.pixoto.com/name

Also if you hoover your cursor over someone's profile pic here in the community, even the default profile pic like Sandra has, a little box will pop up with information that includes whatever URL they have supplied. It is not clickable in that box but you can highlight / copy & paste.

Oh, THANK YOU!! I've been meaning to ask about this for quite awhile!!

But ALSO...I 'THINK' JoAnn Palmer was asking for an easy "button", so we can go from here to our own picture page...our "Profile"...This is something else that I have been wanting to ask about...Don't understand why there isn't one... But I guess, if I rephrased it I would ask...

"Is there a reason this part of Pixoto can't have the normal 'header'...You know...the 'black band'...at the top of the page that says...'Leaderboard', 'Artshop', 'Stock Images', 'Vote', 'Submit', 'About'..."...???

I think it's using a standard board/forum software package which may not allow the custom header (i.e.. leaderboard etc). i.e. Pixoto itself is a custom built site, but this is part is off the shelf....

Right Clare.

Linda, there is a way to jump from your any profile account and any single photo to the community and it will include a link to the page you came from (hope that makes sense)

If you scroll down on any of the pages I mentioned above, the very last thing in the right side column is a bunch of small hyperlinks in grey text. "About/FAQ Help Blog Advertise...' If you click on the one that says Help it will bring you to the community, at the top of the screen you will have a text box to post in, if you use the box the system will attach a link to the right side bar in the community so others can see where you came from, It comes in handy when asking a question about your account or a single photo.

When you have questions about multiple images though you have to paste them into the text box.

I'm sorry, Sherry...I don't know why, but I didn't follow that...

I got to..."at the top of the screen you will have a box to post in,"...Up through that is fine...but then you say, "if you use the box the system will attach a link to the right side bar in the community so others can see where you came from..."

At that point, I am lost...

Many times I have wanted to see a togs work, one that has been posting here, and I am getting to know them...but when I click, say, on their picture, it just takes me to what blogs they are following, and I just want to look at there pictures...

Now the only way I HAVE found to go to their picture page is to enter their name in the search box on the Top Player page...

It just seems like it should be EASIER than that! :)

You know I am actually not positive you all can see those links, it may be because I am a admin on the forums. I have a column to the right of this text that has information in it, if Joann had posted from a specific photo or profile page it would have a link to the right of this text showing where she was posting from.

Anyway, there has been talk in the past of a more comprehensive community in the future.

I would just go do a google search of the persons name with pixoto after their name and then when they show up.. click on one of them to get me to their page.. seems far to complicated.. would be nice to just click here and go to the togs page to see their work.
