General advice about updates


We recommend you prepare the information you wish to add in a separate document. In this way it is possible to make the changes quickly and the information is still available if, for example, the web browser is closed before you saved the changes.


In order for the changes to be carried out, press on the “Save” button near the bottom of the page.  Make sure you do this regularly. 
Sometimes, a message will appear that says "release the lock to edit the page". Then you need to click on the wheel at the top right of the message box to unlock the page and be able to save your changes. 

Continue editing 

If you look at your profile page when you are logged in, you can continue to edit by clicking on the wheel in the upper right corner. Select Edit to return to the form.

Overview of web form

You add all the information in the same form, but in different sections.  You only fill in the fields that you wish to be seen on your page.

First on the form are seen your Name, Language and KI-ID. This information is not to be changed. 
After that follow three sections with language neutral, English and then Swedish-language information.

Text field functions

There are a number of text fields in the form that function in the same way. They are only visible on the profile page when some text is added. 

Mark the text and click on the desired formatting. Use formatting sparingly. 

Link to single publications

Enter the code [pubmed-id:123456789] in the text field and replace the figures with the PubMed-ID found on the article. A linked reference is then created to the publication, which is seen when you save the page.

Please observe that a list of your publications can be displayed automatically, so pubmed-id is only to be used if there is a special publication that you wish to focus on. Read more at List of publications.

Link in text field

Select a word or sentence in the text. Click the link icon. Paste your link address in the "URL" and press Save. The word/sentence should now be linked. To make an email link, first select the "e-mail" in the scroll bar "Link type". Then enter the email address.
You do not need to use the other tabs/functions.
