Planet Minecraft Profile Pages

Our profile pages can be customized to present who we are, share our Minecraft creations and community activity. There are several ways to customize your profile and this article will help you get started.

Your avatar is an image that appears with your username when you do things on the site.
Change Avatar: Hover over the existing avatar in your profile header and click the "edit" icon.

Profile Banner Art + How to adjust vertical position & view port size
Profile banners appear at the top of your profile page. They are large and can easily set the tone for your entire page.

Changing Banner Art: hover over the banner and click the "edit" icon in the upper right.

You can upload static images or animated gifs as long as they are 2MB or less.

TIP: You can vertically adjust your profile banner!
Click and drag your profile banner up or down to adjust its vertical position in the profile header view port.

TIP: You can adjust the size of your profile banner view port!
Click and drag the profile bar up or down to adjust the size of your profile header view port from 150 to 250 pixels in height.

Social Media Links : Adding & Removing
If you have other profiles on popular social media sites or your own personal website, you can add badges to your profile header. Adding Social Media Links : Hover over your profile header and click the "edit" icon on the bottom right.

To remove existing social links: clear the social media input field and save.

Customizing Your Profile Page Widgets

Our profile pages are an arrangement of widgets in a 4 column layout. Widgets are panels with different purposes and you are able to add, remove, resize and order. The site automatically adds certain widgets depending on your site activity until you modify your profile page. After that, you are in control.
Adding Widgets
Click the "Add Widget" button to view a side down management panel of the available widgets.

Some widget types allow more than one to exist on your page. You can tell how many you have and how many are available in the widget management panel.

Click the widget in the manager to add it to your profile page.
Removing Widgets
To remove a widget, click the arrow icon in the upper right of the widget you want to remove and select "Remove Widget".

Resizing Widgets
You can resize a widgets height by dragging the very bottom of the widget up or down. You will see "resize" arrows when your mouse is over the resize grab point.

You can resize widgets to be one to four columns wide by dragging the right side of the widget and dragging. Some widgets have size restrictions depending on the content it displays but for the most part, it's up to you. You will see "resize" arrows when your mouse is over the resize grab point.

Ordering / Moving Widgets : 3 Methods
There are 3 methods to change the order of widgets. I recommend using method #1.

Method #1 : Arrow keys ( Recommended Method )
Click the title bar of the widget you want to move to select it. You will see a icon with 4 arrows appear when it is selected. Then use your arrow keys to change its order.

Method #2: Use Widget menu
Hover over the widget you intend to move. Click the arrow in the upper right of the widget. Use the "Move" menu options to position it where you want.

Method #3: Click and drag
Click and drag a widget by its title bar and drop it where you want it. A solid colored box will appear as you drag the widget around the page, drop it on the solid colored box.

When you "level" up, you unlock other classes. It's a fun thing we implemented :) Being a different member class doesn't give you any superpowers or special privileges or anything like that. >-<

When you're editing a widget, there's a symbol that has a mountain and sun on it. Click that and you can put in an image by copying and pasting the image's source (like if you right click an image lets say on google, tumblr, or deviantart, you can click on "copy image location" (or "view image" and then copying the link in the url of the image) and pasting that in to the image source back on pmc. Your image should then appear on your profile.

In the tool bar of main content, you'll see a symbol that looks like a bookmark. When you hover over the symbol you'll see "insert spoiler." You can edit the text in the header and body of the spoiler :) - see here

In the picture at the top, I notice that there's a profile with backgrounds in the widgets?
I know how to do this on other websites, but I haven't any idea how to do it on this website.

Anyone know how?

it's a bit late but I think you might be referring to mine. It's just a little bit of trickery; they're separate images that I worked out the dimensions for to make it appear to line up :)

You choose a skin, go to the skin's page and there should be a 'Feature this on my profile' or something
