Why is it that the death date and death place are not showing up on the profile?

The death date and death place are not showing up on the profile of [[Hemington-11|Henry Hemington]], however, you can see them on his edit page.  Don't remember ever seeing this happening.  What do I need to do?

Is this what  you want to see? I copied it from his profile

Died after 1672 in Sudborough, Northamptonshire, England

I see it too - not sure what's missing.
It shows up for me when I open the profile.  You might want to contact Wikitree tech staff.
Hello Tom, Yes that's what I want to see in the date of death and the place of death on the profile like it is suppose to be.  It shows up on everyone's profile but his.
Thanks Carolyn, I thought that was where I posted the message at.  I must be missing how you do it.  How do I contact the Wikitree tech staff?
In your question under categories, add tech, admin, tech_help, or something to that effect so they will see the question when posted. I looked for awhile to find a direct route but not coming up with it.  Maybe someone else can tell us where to go directly for tech help.

Well, you entered the death date and place today according to the changes, and as the others say, they do appear in the main profile, but not in the Bio.  When you create a profile and enter things into the main section these will be used to create the initial Biography.  But when you add things to main section after the initial creation, it doesn't show up in the Biography.  You have to cut an paste the material as Tom did in his comment.
