Now, you need to edit your info so you can place a Webpage URL and Webpage Name in your profile. Once you're at the Edit Info page, scroll down until you see Webpage URL and Webpage Name. Fill in the boxes next to it with whatever you'd like. It does not matter what you put, there just needs to be text in those boxes. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
*This is very important. If you do not do this the navigation links and header will not appear in your layout.*
