Profile "About" can't be saved

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I can't save my profile "about" any longer. I'm using GSAK and FSG to create my personal profile and it did work until last week. I wanted to upload my actual changes and after saving the "about" part is empty.

 

Any ideas what this could be? Too much info in that part? Or "just" a simple bug?

 

Thanks,

Christian

Browser? sometimes these issues are browser related.

Scroll the whole page and look for an error message, -> Please remove any third party image sources.

 

You can get this message even though the image was  uploaded to Geocaching.com, if the URL is amazon cloud  - s3.amazonaws.com

 

I just checked, and yep, your profile image of monster with box, is on amazon. You won't be able to edit until you remove that and reload it ...

Hans, I was hoping your link would work, and it does, as does (for me) the site edit  link   https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/profile

But I can't update until I remove the "third party" image (ie, amazon cloud , where the site put my image when i originally uploaded it ;-)

my profile can stay stuck... 

I think  that link would work

Bummer. This is an Firefox 75 issue.

Firefox75  gives this:

Where I do expect this:

Use this URL:

https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/profile#Biography

and paste the just clipped stats into the "About" text field.

Tried everything that has been suggested here. Still doesn't work. It saves a short text, but not the profile created by FSG :-( Too bad. I even deleted my profile pic, also didn't help. Will see what happens now and when this gets fixed finally...

Thanks for your ideas and suggestions, I really appreciate it!

Ok, got a solution, that works for me!

It seems that my profile info became too long. After removing one part, it could be saved again. So, there seems to be a length limit, can't tell, how much it is, but there is one...

Thanks again for coming up with some ideas on what I could try!

 

Bye,

Christian

Psst Groundspeak:  Error message needed.  Please and thank you.
