If you follow the settings link in the main menu you can configure your StatusNet account. Currently in version 0.6.0 the settings are split into six parts 1. Profile 1. Email 1. OpenID 1. SMS 1. IM 1. Twitter 1. Other
In this part of the settings you can control your profile informations that will be displayed in your profile at the server.
- Nickname: that is (a) your login name and (b) the name that is displayed in the timelines besides your notices.
- Full name: that name is displayed at your profile page and as title of the icons in the subscriber lists.
- Homepage: the link to your homepage
- Bio: this description of yourself is displayed at your profile page. You have 140 characters for your description.
- Location: where are you
- Tags: A list of tags to describe yourself and your interests
- Language: which is the language you prefere to speak? This has nothing to do with the language that is used for the webinterface.
- Timezone: the timezone of your location
- "Automatically subscribe...": If you check this box, then you'll automatically become subscribed to anybody who subscribes to you. If you don't like this, don't check the box. You can unsubscribe anybody your subscribed to.
At the bottom of the page you can upload a picture that should be used as avatar and change your password. Your avatar is displayed on your profile page and besides every notice you post. If you don't add one, the default one is used.
Anything related to email communication between you and the StatusNet server can be configured in this tab.
- Address: this is the adress tha StatusNet server will send mails to
- Incoming email: if you want to post notices using email you have to create an incoming email address at your server. If you have created one you can send with your address (the spelling is case sensitive!) notices to that address to post notices.
With the preferences below you can configure the email configurations for the StatusNet server. Here you can set, when you want the StatusNet server send you emails and if you want to post using email. Futher you can activate and deactivate the nudge feature.
If you have an OpenID you can connect it here with your StatusNet account.
don't know - don't use it
Below this tab you find the settings for your XMPP (Jabber / Google Talk) address if you want to use StatusNet over XMPP.
If you add your address wait a little bit. The xmpp-bot of your StatusNet server will contact you at this address to confirm it. Follow the link in that message and your id will be added to the bots contact list. Eventually you have to authorize the bots address before it is added to your contact list.
In the Preference section you can alter the behaviour of the bot for your account. Shall it send you notices and replies from not subscribed users? Shall it publish changes of your XMPP status?
This feature was implemented in version 0.6.0 of the StatusNet software.
Here you can configure the settings of the twitter bridge, which automatically publishes your notices at your twitter account. Needless to say, you have to give the StatusNet your login data for twitter, so that it can post for you there.
Additionally you can decide whether your dents and replies (notices that include a @) should be pushed over the bridge or not.
As of version 0.6.3 you can automatically subscribe to your Twitter friends on the StatusNet server.
If you have no account on Twitter, you don't have to alter anything at all. The twitter bridge will only be activated for your account if you provide valid login data and hit the add button at the bottom of the page.
In this section of your Settings you can choose how urls should be handled, when the notice is longer then 140 characters. If they should be shortened and with which service.
