Help - why is the bio being chopped off?

+2 votes

I just wrote up a bio for [[Hurst-4490|Harry Hurst]] and when I put it in wikitree it is cutting off everything after listing his children. It should have subsections on occupations, death and sections on research notes and of course resources!! When I look in the editor I can see it all there. Display for public or private both are missing that same sections. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

If you turn on the enhanced editor, I believe any problems with ref tags will highlight in RED.

We can't see the "Edit" version of the profile for privacy reasons, but the likely culprit is a misplaced or mistyped <ref> or </ref> tag.  If those are out of whack everything after the error may be hidden.  And you also need the

== Sources ==


lines after all the sections of the biography for your sources to display properly.
