How to add more fields to your AOL profile (AOL 4.0/5.0 for Windows)

Tired of the same old boring cookie-cutter AOL profile fields? Create your own! With a little ingenuity (and the help of carriage return and tab characters), you can create your own profile fields!

getting a Tab

The first thing you need to do is copy a Tab into the Clipboard. Get a profile (Ctrl+G) and copy a tab from it (shown highlighted in the picture). To copy the tab, highlight it and select Copy from the Edit menu (or press Ctrl+C).

selecting 'My Member Profile'

Select 'My Member Profile' from the 'My AOL' toolbar menu.

the 'Edit Your Online Profile' window

Now you are at the profile editing window. It should say 'Edit Your Online Profile' at the top.

Now it's time to start tweaking your profile. Follow the example steps below to learn how the technique works:

Type something in the 'Your Name' field.

Press Enter (on your keyboard).

Type a new field name.

Paste in a Tab character (Ctrl+V).

Type an entry for the new field.

When you're done, click on the 'Update' button. A window will pop up that looks like this:

Popup window: 'Your profile has ben updated...'

Congratulations! You just added a new field to your profile. Now go back and add whatever you want to your profile (within space constraints). Happy hacking!
