WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS

 

 

This article will introduce you to our website account tools and explain how to use them.  Please note that accounts that are never used are removed 30 days after their creation, please create a post in our blog if you intend to participate on our website.

Topic 1 – WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS – CREATING A NEW ACCOUNT
This is the first step in our journey, the creation of a brand new website account. There are two ways this can be approached. In the first place, on the logon page there is a link here that will lead to the registration page:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Login Form Registration Link
You can also use this item in our main menu which will send you to the same destination:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Account Menu Create New Account
Simply fill out the information on the registration page and then click the “Add User” button on the bottom of the form:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Registration Form
Choose your user name carefully as this can never be changed!

The only required fields are your user name and email (this is needed because we will be sending an email to verify you really exist) but if you also supply your first and last name this will be shown on any posts you create on our site.

We ask that you create a password of at least medium complexity. This will help to protect your account and will also help to safeguard against automated processes (spambots) creating accounts on our website.

You will receive an email where you will need to click on a link to verify your account.

After your account is verified you will see this page.  It is best to close this web page and return to the tab in your browser where you completed the registration form.  Once you are there you need to return to our website home page. You can either do this by hitting the “back” button on your browser several times or by using the link that originally sent you to our website. The third option would be to modify the URL in the address line of your browser by deleting the information at the end so the URL is https://perssontechnologies.com.

Topic 2 – WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS – LOGGING ON
There are two methods by which you can logon. The easiest way is to use the “logon” menu choice provided in the main menu:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Account Menu Logon
Also, if you wish to comment on an article there is a link here:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Comment Logon Link
Once you logon and return to the web page you should see your information in the admin bar on the top of the page (you might need to refresh the page for this to be visible). This is how you can always determine if you are currently logged on.
Topic 3 – WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS – IF YOU FORGET YOUR PASSWORD
While we are on the topic of logging on, what happens if you forget your password? On the logon form you would click here:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Login Form Lost Password
An email will be sent to the address you used when you created your account. You can click on the link in the email at which time you will be sent to a form that will allow you to enter a brand new password.
Topic 4 – WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS – UPDATING YOUR PROFILE
By using this item in the main menu you can update your profile. You cannot change your user name but you can change your name and your email.

Topic 5 – WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS – LOGGING OFF
There are two methods by which you can logoff. The first method is by using this drop-down menu in the admin bar on top of the page:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Admin Bar Logoff Link
Also when you scroll down to the comment section of any article there is a link here where you can logoff:
WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS - Comment Logoff Link
Topic 6 – WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS – IN CASE YOU NEED THIS
Although we have tried to disable all paths to the system dashboard, it is possible you might stray into this area (there is nothing to see here, move along):

If you do find yourself on this page, simply click the “Persson Technologies” link at the very top of the page to return to our website.
Topic 7 – WEBSITE ACCOUNT TOOLS – ACCOUNT DELETION

We have not provided an automated method by which you can delete your account. If you wish for us to delete your account, please send us an email by using our contacts page.
