The profile of each PANDA user contains only rudimentary information after the first login. Your profile can only be viewed by registered PANDA users. However, the profile cannot be further restricted.

Profile settings

Profile picture

Upload a portrait photo


After "Profile" has been selected in the drop-down menu, the next step is to click "Edit Profile" (1). It makes sense to store a user picture in the profile settings, because the user picture is displayed for all forum posts. In general, when you post messages, your profile picture is often displayed.


Upload a portrait photo

Scroll down to the setting user picture.

The user image must correspond to a standard Internet format (jpg, png), a size of 100 x 100 pixels is sufficient, but for larger images it will also be automatically adjusted by PANDA. Non-square images will be cropped automatically.

The image can be uploaded in several ways:

  • Add file (1): a window will open where you can select a file and upload it through the file manager
  • Drag-and-Drop(2): by dragging the image onto the upload field.



Profile description

You can also enter a description text that should always be displayed on your profile page. Lecturers can enter consultation hours and room numbers, for example.

Click on Edit profile and insert the desired description text under Basic entries.
