How do I setup a profile card on Lithosphere?

Following the TKB article about Profile Cards I was looking to try set one up on Lithosphere as I can see some users with them and they look great. In My Settings > Social Connect I don't have the Profile Card option? Do I need to achieve a certain rank before I can do this?

If you have access to the profile badge, you should be able to enable it through this link:

http://lithosphere.lithium.com/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab/user-social-connect%3Aprofile-badge

 

If you don't have anything there, You'll have to reach a rank that enables it. 🙂

It's a bit of a faff - you have to use something Lithium calls a 'profile badge' (not to be confused with actual badges, or the little icons next to your rank).

 

Through trial and error, I found the following process seems to work best to get a customised avatar background:

  1. Go to http://lithosphere.lithium.com/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab/user-social-connect%3Aprofile-badge
  2. Tick 'display your profile badge on your posts'
  3. Pick one of the built-in badge themes (I use tokyo madness)
  4. Upload a custom image - you need to pick one that has suitable dimensions (I use 192 x 333px) and won't clash with the text colour of the selected badge theme (e.g. if the text colour is white, you'll want to use a dark background).
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you find a combination that works Smiley Happy

Hi @cblown 

 

There seems to have been a permission issue which is now fixed and you should now be able to set up a profile card following instructions shared by Ditte and Nathan. If you run into anymore issues, let me know!
