The last source in the profile has a red bullet yet there is no colour code for it and there are four black bullets preceeding it and there are numerous black black bullets in the profile itself why would this happen

Interesting.  You have a red bullet at the begining of the profile as well.  Did you intend that?  Their is a Font Code for red at the very begining.
That was intended but you will notice that it has been changed back to black after it, so they should all be Black after it
Paul,

I temporarily changed the Font from Red to Black and that fixed the problem.  I returned it to the Red state.  Try it for yourself.

It is my understanding that wikitree uses wikimarkup to some degree and that not all html coding works or plays nice.

Also, I added another bullet and it came out red while the other turned black.

And preview mode only shows black.
Hi guys. For reference, manually changing the font color is not recommended.

I will explain more about what red links mean in an answer here.
I seem to have caused a stir. all over a tiny red bullet, for this i humble apologise and i will try to find the answer some where that doesn;t cause such a ill will amoung its members

Red links inside a profile indicate that the URL being linked-to doesn't exist.

When you see a red link, test the URL and see if it works. You may need to adjust the structure of the link. If you're not sure how to do it, see http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Adding_links and post here in G2G with any questions.

Hi Chris

the link was perfect it was really just the bullet, it was strange but it is fixed now and I had thought I closed the question off, it was fixed by suggestions from Michael Stills and Terry Wright thanks again

Although I am still baffled with regards to how it happened, and also the other question as it definately said it was over 1000, (which i obvious had, as my score was over 1000 and i had only joind 26 aprli, is there a points rating that builds up you score e.g. a certain amount of points for picture uploads, questions to G2G, points for new entries etc, points for completing certain tasks on wikitree

regards
