If you look under Eldsonas -> Bio, you will now have an option to "Edit Bio". This will give you a BB Code editor that you can use to put together a bio for your Eldsona! The editor is more modern and graphical than the one here in the forums, which will give you a pretty faithful preview of what it will look like on the bio page.

To manually edit BB Code, or to paste some in, just toggle the "BB Code" button on the top-right side. The code syntax should totally match what we have here in the forums.

You may click "Save" at any time to save your progress and keep going.

Options
  1. Show Eldsona card on the bio page: You have the option of removing the whole top portion of your Eldsona's profile page (the part with their image and all their stats, name, etc) and just showing the bio that you made. This is for mostly for people who want to present all of this info in their own way, with their own styling.
  2. Publish Bio: If you're still working on your bio and you don't want anyone to see it, leave this unchecked. When you check this, your Eldsona's bio will be visible to anyone who visits.

If anyone has any questions/confusion/glitches, please feel free to post them here or in the Glitches thread. We hope you guys enjoy it!

Fixed text clipping out when enlarged

Can't even begin to relate just how much I looooooooove this! Thank you so much Zayin! ^^

I can't wait to stalk people's Eldsonas! I hope this encourages a lot more writing on the site, so I can stalk that too. XP

Had so much fun doing Dusk! (I think I overdid it with the coding) But when I get my OC with Kiken'na the Phoenix Drake up, I'm definitely doing another Bio code for her! :D Thanks Zayin!

I'm so excited to use this feature, I have a lot of ideas about my Elde characters and now I can finally get them all out and organise them!
Here's to hoping I get the time to work on it sooner rather than later!

This is great! Zayin, this is awesome and I bet was a pain to get coded in. Thank you so much for taking the time to do it! I shall hopefully get some things put together for my characters sometime ^^
