You can now change the default profile view as well as moving your playlists out of the dropdown.

For example, you may want to highlight a selection of uploads on your front page, or draw your listeners’ attention to different groups of uploads, a mix series, or separate presenters on your radio station. You are now in control.

Here’s how NTS Radio did it:
