Member Profiles

How do I view my profile, including my forum activity and reviews?

After signing in, click your Member Name to view your profile page. When you are signed in, your Member Name appears at the top of every page on Fodors.com.

Who can see my profile?

Other members and site visitors can click on your Member Name to view your profile. They can see everything you see except your account settings. Your email will not appear in your profile unless you check the box on your account-settings page specifying that it should appear.

How do I change my profile picture?

You can choose a picture to represent your member profile. To upload your profile image, click on the "Change picture" or "Edit my profile" link on your profile page. Click the "Upload" box to select the photo you'd like to display. Don't forget to click the "Save" button at the bottom to save your upload. If you have questions about profile photos, email us at forums@fodors.com.

What is the "Recent topics" section that appears in member profiles?

The "Recent topics" section displays all of the topics that a member has started in the forums. These topics appear in descending order by the date of the last reply or the last post the topic received. If a topic that you started a long time ago appears at the top of your profile's "Recent topics" section, it is because it has received a new reply. Select "See all your topics" to view more topics you've started.

What is the "Topics recently commented on" section that appears in member profiles?

The "Topics recently commented on" section displays all of the topics that a member has replied to, from most to least recent. This order allows you to see when a topic that you've participated in has a new reply.

How can I change the email, password, or security answer associated with my account?

To update your account settings, sign in, go to your profile page, and then click "Account settings."

How do I change my Member Name?

It is not possible to change your Member Name, but you are welcome to join again with another email address. If you'd like to join again under a new name but with the same email address, you must first delete your original membership.

Please note that posting under multiple Member Names is not permitted. You can review our Forum Guidelines here.

How do I delete my membership?

To delete your membership, sign into Fodors.com, go to your profile, and click "Account Settings." At the bottom of the settings page is a box you must check to delete your account and profile.

How do I contact other members?

There is no official way to contact other members at this time. Some members choose to display an email address in their profiles. You may request their help (along with the help of other members) in our forums by starting a new topic.
