I've written a few articles (see my Author Page) for the java.net website, and would like to edit the contents of the author-page myself.

But I've never been able to find how to edit/modify the page -- though I understand it can be done.

Can anyone tell me how it's done?

When you are logged in you should be able to see an edit tab on that page that opens up a wysiwyg editor to update the content.  That is missing for you?

Hi Sonya, I've been fighting with this for a long time, so thanks for your help.

After I log in, I'm taken to this profile page, which is me - and my project interests are listed correctly. It does have an Edit My Profile link, and that does allow me to edit the profile.

However, the published articles part of java.net point to a different me at this author record. It is this record that I wish (but am unable) to edit. I've looked everywhere on this page (see screen-shot attached), but can't find an edit link or tab.

Thank you for any guidance with this issue.

 Hi Sanjay, 

Sorry about the delay.  I've pinged Frank, our drupal engineer to take a look for you.  I'm not sure how to tweak the permissions, or if this is a bug.  We've been a little swamped with the unexpected crash last week, and the hurricane didn't help much either.  :)

Hi Sonya,

Thanks for your response. I live very far away from the US, but even on TV the hurricane was frightening.

I'll wait for news of any progress on this. Thanks.

Hi Sanjay,

While I am researching why the edit tab does not appear on your author page can you send me the updated information you want to be displayed on this page so I can update it?

Thanks,

Frank

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your response.

There isn't really a specific immediate change I wish to make, but I have felt the need to "evolve" the content periodically in the past (and have always requested the site editor to do it for me). This route (via the site editor) is somewhat inconvenient, hence this request.

Thanks,

- Sanjay

Sanjay,

We have reset the permissions on your account and you should now see the "Edit" tab on your author page which will allow you to edit your bio at any time.

Thanks for your patience,
Frank
