Inactive profile ID link for this profile in census table

+1 vote
For some reason, I can't make the profile of William Fox Juler come up as a link in the census table. It just shows as bold type, with no link. The other ones in the table work perfectly well. I have done nothing different with WFJ's profile ID. Is there a glitch here? I've tried editing it several times, to no avail.
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
WikiTree profile: William Juler

That is weird. I just replaced the brackets, which in preview showed the link, but on save there is no link.
Exactly. :)

The link definitely shows as there on preview (I did it again, but without saving this time) --


Something else strange is - my change does not show as having been done.  It says I changed the data, when I did NOT touch the data.

09:40: You edited the data for William Fox Juler (1794-bef.1843). (Replacing brackets.)

Clicking the "edited the data" link shows what would normally be seen if I had edited a marriage on the spouse profile.

I think this question should have the bugs tag (and maybe Jamie).

Many thanks, Melanie, but see Nelda's answer below. :)

With Nelda's answer, there is no need to add tags!  smiley

Internal links for a profiled person do not display as "links" on their own profile.

Brilliant. Thanks!! Cleared that up.
I did not know that.  Something new is learned all the time!
Same here!! :)
