The user profile page is part of the community overview. This page shows an overview of information of one specific platform user or Moderator. This is also the page where a user can change his/her personal information, email settings, and password.
There are different ways to reach this profile page. If you choose your profile, in the menu you will go directly to your own profile page.
The second way is to click on a user from the community overview to go to your own or to another user’s profile field.
Another way is to click on the name of a user in one of the widgets or in an individual post of a user.
