I tried to edit the Vermont cemetery progress page. Everything went in the chart correctly, except that the name of the cemetery is showing up red again.  I had this problem yesterday with it showing up red on my profiles.

Scott suggested it was the coding Wikitree enters for the apostrophe (St. Mary's)  that was throwing things off, but today when I added the name to the cemetery progress page, I tried both variations of the code and neither worked.

Help, please!

Sorry, Carolyn, but I'm not even going to think about trying to help with this one - it sounds like another instance of the same problem you had yesterday, which even stumped Lianne and if she can't figure it out then I don't think anyone on the planet can!
I know! Surely someone from Tech should be able to figure it out.

Is it possible that you used the wrong name for the Free-Space page? I think the correct name is:

Space:St._Mary%27s_Cemetery%2C_Swanton%2C_Vermont

You have used:

Space:St._Mary%27s_Cemetery

Which does not exist.

TaDa!!!  Thanks, Rick.  I had that to begin with but other cemeteries on the page were only showing the first part of the code so that's what I went with.  I guess that's the code with which theirs were set up. Stupid me! I should have thought of that. Thanks again.
Hey Carolyn. there is no "stupid" questions here. So many errors are due to the simplest typos that can stare you in the face and not reveal themselves. That is why it is always a great idea to post such questions here and have discerning eyes like Rick's find the problem for you.
