How to control the display of my personal information to others?

By default, some of the information you provided at the time of registration can be seen by registered users only. If you wish to change these settings and show parts of your information to additional members (such as to non-registered users, for example), or to make it private, this is how (using your Age as an example):

  • Click the My Profile link of the Account section, near the top of the right-hand navigation bar of most pages.
  • Your main profile page should appear.
  • Click the Edit Profile button, located near your photo.
  • Your account information/settings page should appear. Scroll down to Details and you will see an icon or button next to your birthday information.
  • Click this and a menu will drop down, offering you 4 different ‘permission level’ choices:
    • Everyone (everyone on the internet can see)
    • Registered Users (only the registered users on Vivaldi.net can see)
    • My Friends (only your friends on Vivaldi.net can see)
    • Only Me (no one else except you can see)

The default option is to share your age with Registered Users. If you do NOT want to show your age to anybody, you could choose Only Me. Remember to click Save at the bottom of the page when finished.

Now, other users won’t be able to see your age anymore, if that is what you have selected. It will still show up on your account info and settings page, as all the options are visible to you.

There are similar icons next to each other piece of personal info of that page and each is adjustable in the same way.

How do I delete my account?

How do I create Blog title and description for my own blog?

  • Go to Dashboard under Blog on the right side navigation bar
  • Click the gear-shaped icon on the far right end of the dark gray menu bar on your dashboard.

  • You can also do other things there such as optimizing your blog for search engines, etc.

How to optimize for search?

Blog Post Tagging

Add tags to your blog post relevant to the post content. Lesser amount of broader tags is better. Reusing existing tags will help for discoverability of your article among relevant posts and via the tag cloud visible on blog pages.

Blog Post Meta Data

As a part of a blog post, you can fill in page description and keywords. These will be inserted in the meta data section of your blog post page and improve search engine indexing. For the description use a single sentence relevant to your blog post. Keywords should ideally cover the tags you have assigned to your post.

Photo name and description

Adding name and description to your images will make them discoverable in Vivaldi.net search results.

How to link external images?

At Vivaldi.net we care about the safety of your data and enforce all connections through certified secure HTTPS. This certification is invalid when a page contains object embedded via insecure HTTP link.

Hot-linking (i.e. linking media from a 3rd party domain) is a bad practice to begin with. The linked media can change its location, disappear, or the hosting site can prohibit external linking. To avoid disappearing media and to prevent compromising secure connection we discourage linking of external resources. Please upload the shared media to Vivaldi.net and link locally. Please mind that you should only publish media authored by you or in public domain, as per our Terms of use.

How do I move my email from other email provider?

The best way to move all of your emails from your current provider is to set up your email client (e.g. Opera M2, Thunderbird, etc.) with both Vivaldi Mail and your current email providers account using IMAP. Once you set up both, you can move emails from your current mail provider's IMAP folder to Vivaldi Mail IMAP folder.

For step by step instruction, take a look at this article which is written with My Opera Mail and Opera M2 email client as an example.

After you move all the emails, you can then use Vivaldi Mail web interface. If you want to move emails you sent, don't forget to move the email in Sent folder or similarly named IMAP folder.

After the migration, you can also configure your email provider to forward all incoming emails to your Vivaldi Mail address to avoid checking multiple accounts.
