  • You've got special characters in your signature that are not allowed. I think when we migrated the profiles over from the current forums system it brought your signature over without checking for the invalid characters that the current profile system rejects.
    Our profile team is working on fixing the limitting characters but in the meantime, you should be able to save if you remove some of the non alphanumeric characters.

  • Our profile team (we have a different team working on a shared profile) did some fixes for our next release so which will allow special characters in several of the profile fields. Hopefully the release will be released within the next couple of weeks!

  • Hi Sam,

    Thanks for your reply, it works. But pls bring back the old signature format(i.e signature supporting special characters).

    Thanks

  •   We did an update to the Profile Page.  We made the following changes
    1. Read only mode of other profiles is easier to read.
    2. URL's can be copied to the clip board.
    3. Disabled charactor blocking from inputs fields.
