Adding a new note

The User Notes extension will add the Notes tab on the user profile where users can add notes to their profile.

Adding a new note can be done by clicking on the ' Add note' button. Users have the option to upload an image for the note, set a note title, and add text within the Add note dialog.

Also, it is possible to set the note's privacy and status (Published or Draft). Draft notes are visible only for the note's author. And you could select these privacy options:

  • Only me - your note, visible only to you. 
  • Everyone - a public note visible to all users/guests. 
  • If the 'Followers extension' is activated: 
    • Only people I follow - the note becomes visible only to the users whom you follow. 
    • Followers - the note becomes visible to all of your followers. 
  • Friends - a note visible to you and your friends.

User notes can be edited or deleted in the "Read More" modal window.
