Updating your name

As I mentioned in the email, you’ll need to change the way your name appears on the blog. Right now, it shows your full first and last names. You should modify this to either your first name only or a pseudonym. Several of you have asked if you can use your x500 ID, and that would be perfectly fine. Just drop me an email if you haven’t already and let me know what name you’re going by so I can make sure you get proper credit.

To change the information, you’ll begin by logging on to Uthink at http://blog.lib.umn.edu/. Click on the "Login to UThink" link at the top of the sidebar.

(You can click on any of these images to see a larger version.)


Once you’ve logged on, you’ll see the main MoveableType menu. Your screen won't have all of the same blogs that mine does, of course.

Changing names in MT 1


Click on the welcome link with your x500 ID at the upper right corner.

Changing names in MT 2


That’ll take you to the Author Profile screen, which is pretty self-explanatory. (I’m not screencapping it here because I don’t want to release my ID to the world.) Update your info, click “save changes”, and you should be good to go.
