Problem when saving Wikitree ID

Hi,

I am trying to enter the following Wikitree ID : Lemay-58 as Father of Marie Poudrier, but I keep on having Error notification: To, only, use letters and numbers, when enterering Wikitree ID. But impossible also, if I remove the dash between Lemay and 58.

I hope I am clear about my situation and I thank you in advance for the help!

Make sure you don't have an accidental trailing space when adding Lemay-58 to the field.

Aha! The issue is in the "Other Last Names" field.

That field has a special character in it - the ( and ).

You'll have to remove those in order for it to work.

Removed (dit) from the Lemay-58 profile. It should allow you to add it now. It you need to add it back, you'll have to do so without the parenthesis.
Thank you! ☺️
