Back-end Profile Settings

The backend profile page is the page of WordPress Users’ page (Dashboard > Users most likely found at www.yoursitename.domain/wp-admin/users.php ). Here, you can see the profile page only if you have access to the dashboard (admins etc). You can tweak the settings of this page to manage all the form fields of the users.
