Specialized Profile Issue

Hello! I'm having trouble deleting my specialized profile. Although I've managed to put it in draft mode, I still can't add projects to just my regular profile.

Hi Caitlin,


You won't be able to upload a new portfolio item without selecting a Related Specialized Profile. Please know that this is working as designed. Specialized profiles allow freelancers to better showcase their portfolio items in a format that helps clients find best freelancers for their specific projects. However, if you don't want a portfolio item to show on a Specialized profile, you can go to that profile's portfolio section, click on the pencil icon in the upper right corner of that section and then un-select that item from the list. You can find more information in this help article.


Thank you!
