User Preferences let the user select all the user-level Preferences for the site: personal avatar, time zone, theme, language, etc.
Not to be confused with the general site-wide Preferences.
The user Preferences will display a screen where the user can change his or her email, the theme, his or her real name, home page and it has a link to the user personal wiki page as well as a link to edit the page.
How do we set up the lat and longitude info? See gmap (Google maps) feature in Tiki for more info there.
The “Pick user Avatar” link (“My Tiki > Preferences > Personal Information > Avatar > Pick user Avatar”, tiki-pick_avatar.php) can be used to let the user select his or her avatar:
By default there are no avatar in your tiki installation. You can upload your own (the recommended size for avatars is approximately 45 pixels x 45 pixels), or choose one from the collections you can install through the Mods Type Avatars.
The URL is your homePage, or your favorite URL. It can be outside the tikiwiki site. It is not used - other than display in your information.
In this screen the user can also configure the user messages settings, the user tasks settings and what will be displayed in the MyTiki screen.
