2.7.2.2. Editing the user profile

Each user can edit its own user profile by clicking the "Profile" button () in the head-panel of the main window. An administrator can edit the user profile of any user by switching to the "Users" tab in the "Administration" workspace, selecting the user from the list and clicking the "Edit" button next to the list (or double-clicking the entry). This opens following dialog:

Figure 2.7.23. Edit user dialog

In the opened user profile dialog change the settings as described below and finally click "Okay" to save the changes.
Login-Name
This field displays the current login name. The login name can be changed at any time. Note that the login name can only consist of letters, digits and the underscore character (_).
Last Name, First Name, E-Mail
This fields can be used to provide the user's full name and email address. The fields are optional and can be left empty. Note that if the first and/or last name is provided, then this name will be displayed instead of the login-name in the "Last Modified" column of the content tree.
User Interface Language
This field allows to select the user interface language.
Note:
The user interface language defines the language of the labels shown in the user interface of Docmenta. This may be different to the content language of the product (which needs to be defined for each product). For example you can use English as user interface language, but write a French product documentation.
Date Format
This field defines the format of dates shown in the user interface (e.g. the format of the last modification date of a content node).
Content Editor
This field allows to select the preferred content editor. The Docmenta installation includes a prepared version of the open source editor "tinymce". However, other versions of the editor can be downloaded and installed as Docmenta plug-in. If multiple editor versions are installed, then a user can select the editor version that shall be used for editing content. One of the editor versions is marked as "default", which is the recommended version to be used. If a user does not explicitely select a specific version from the list, then the "default" editor will be used. If you experience problems with the selected editor, then you can try to select a different editor version. In general old editor versions work better with old browser versions, whereas new editor versions work better with newer browser versions.
Text Editor
This field allows to select the preferred text file editor.
Enable Quick-Links
Check or uncheck this field to enable or disable Quick-Links. For more information on Quick-Links see Section 2.3.8.9, “Quick-Links” and Section 1.4.1, “Referencing sections”. Note that this field may not be available, if the Quick-Links rule has been disabled.
Set Password
To change the password of the user account, enter the password in the "New Password" field and repeat the password in the field aside. Click "Okay" to set the new password. Note that if the password fields are left empty, then the old password will be kept.
