By popular demand: private and friends only bio pages

Hi all,


Because people asked for it, you can now set an individual bio page's privacy options.  The default is "everyone", but you can set it to "friends only" and "me only" if you'd like.


Some tips:


 


1. Use it sparingly


Please keep it at "everyone" unless you have some really personal or private stuff in the bio page.  A lot of brides who use the site don't register (boo!) and they won't be able to be inspired by your ideas if you set the page to private.


Also, keep in mind that the setting is at the page level.  You'll have to set the privacy on each page individually.  This allows you to keep some pages private and others public.


 


2. Where is it?


Edit your bio page (the pencil icon) or create a new page - you'll see the option in the form, right above the save button.


 


3. Ask people to friend you


If you set a page to "friends only", you may want to add something like "friend me to see all the details of my dress" onto one of your public pages.

This is such a great option!  My husband made me take down all of our photos because he was nervous about the privacy issue - now maybe I can put some of them back up!

Hi WM,


The boards are still public - they are a public forum after all.  Only the bio pages can be made private or friends only.  Also, private messages are private (of course :).

MarinBride,


Just to be clear: photos are still public if you upload them to Project Wedding.  That is, someone can click on the camera next to your profile picture to see your photos.  So don't upload any "too private" photos.  One of our long (possibly way-long-term) todos is to allow you to set certain photos to private/friends only as well.


However, if you include photos from something like tinypic onto your private bio page, then only friends can see them - since only friends can see the page at all.
