Biography in Profile limited to 50 chars

894 Views, 17 Replies

I cannot seem to edit my profile page because my existing biography is too long and will not save my other changes.  It says the BIO cannot be more than 50 characters long, which isn't even enough to put a complete descriptive sentence.  This was not a problem on the test site.

Hi Travis,

 

We are testing this internally in staging. It should be live soon.

Hi Travis,

 

Thank you for reporting this!

 

To our Expert Elites, are you seeing the same behavior as Travis where the space for your bio is limited to 50 characters?

 

Please, mention browser version when replying.

 

Thanks!

No problem.  This appears in both IE and Firefox.  Subsequently, I got a warning that sso.autodesk.com was an untrusted site in Firefox. I don't recall seeing that before.  I also had a difficult time placing the cursor in this box to reply.  And I cannot fload forums to the top anymore.  The test site seems more solid than the production site.  Odd...

I saw this earlier when I went to adjust my sig to the new format. I've just removed my Bio in the meantime.

Thanks Corey.  There are a lot of bugs that I found in the test site that still exist here.  Plus new ones like this. 

 

I just found another one where I cannot delete a post if that post was quoted in a reply post.  Very odd behaviors on the new forum.

Thanks for confirming, Corey and Travis.

 

I'll have a look at the issue with not being able to delete a post which was quoted in another post.

I have seem many quirks, too. However, every time I go to report them someone (mostly Dean) has beaten me to it. The tiny stuff I've been refraining from reporting just yet, as other matters are much more pressing.

 That sorta makes sense to me - if a post was quoted, wouldn't deleting that post detract a lot from the cohesiveness of the thread?

How'd you get that grey background for the quoted message?  That looks soooo much better than forum default. (I'm already applying manual text overrides to compensate for the deficient scheme)

You should be able to delete your own post for 20 minutes or until there is a reply whatever occurs first. After that you know the process

I've had that set up for quite a while now - I'm just glad it still works with this new format!

 

I have a macro I insert before the first line (in the HTML tab) and then add "</div>" after the second horizontal line. See below.

 

<blockquote><div style="background-color: #d8d8d8;"><hr />nestly wrote:<br />
<p><em><font face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif" size="2">"How'd you get that grey background for the quoted message?&nbsp; That looks soooo much better than forum default. </font><font size="2"><font face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif">(I'm already applying manual text overrides to compensate for the deficient scheme)"</font></font></em></p>
<hr /></div></blockquote>
