Can't Update my Bio in "Manage Profile"
Posted by Valkyrie on Monday, February 10, 2014 7:49 PM
I've been trying to update my Bio in "Manage Profile." After going into Edit mode it lets be enter the information, but when I save, it all disappears. All the other fields seem to work fine. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Valkyrie,

First, if you'd like, private message me the text for your bio and I can put it up for you, just so we can get that taken care of.

Next, which operating system are you using on your computer and which internet browser? We'll start there and see if we can't resolve the problem.

Tim

Tim, I'm not sure how to send you a private message.  My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1 and I'm using Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.16476, update 11.0.2.

Tim, I'm not sure how to send you a private message...

Hi, Val!

Click on Tim's name above the text of his post, where you see "Posted by Tim Kidwell".  Our names are links that take you to that person's personal page.  You should see a link on Tim's page, called "Start a Conversation".

Hope that helps!

Hi Valkyrie,

Try using IE11 in compatibility mode. Click here for more info. IE11 doesn't play well with some sites. Both Microsoft and other providers are working to make their software more compatible.

Hi, Tim.  The "Compatibility Mode" worked.  I was able to update the bio.  Thanks to both of you, Tim and Brad.

Me, too!

Tim, I work in IT, so sometimes I can't help myself, I'm always in problem-solving mode Wink
