Change Social Links, Email Address, and Website

Social icons for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube can be shown under the Instructor's profile image. Under the Bio, a website and email address can also be listed.

Once you've adjusted these, scroll to the bottom of the profile page and click save.

Changing the Instructor's Profile Image

By default WordPress uses the Gravatar associated with the user's email address as their profile image.

You can edit your Gravatar by visiting https://gravatar.com/

However, if you'd like to upload your own image, and would prefer to not use Gravatar, we've found the following plugins work well for that.
