To John: Siesta Time? you want more answers or do you want to take a nap... just verifying...  Your' already a pilot so you really don't need more points now do you.. lol.. just picking at ya!

Thanks for all you do on G2G and elsewhere. Good luck in your future endeavors here at WikiTree!!

Thank you, Dorothy BarryDennis Barton, and John Vickery. I changed the Privacy setting to Open and checked the "<references/>", yet the problem persists. Could the reference I added have affected the visibility?

David, you have the privacy setting Public which is green and I can't use Edit to see the coding.

No, David, I believe the problem is still the privacy setting on Green, we recommend you put it on open or white....

Thank you! I've changed the privacy setting to white.
Dorothy, I'll sleep when i'm dead. te he te he :)

All it was was you forgot to close your source with the </ref> command and the software ignored everything after the <ref> .

Hi David, You will have to change the privacy setting you have for that particular profile.When someone is deceased you can change it to open if you want to have everything visable to others. Just click on the privacy tab on top of the profile page (same line as the edit botton) and make a change.

Check here to see the vaious privacy settings you can have for a profile.

Hi David. The profile is private, so we can't see the detail, but as a first step I would suggest double-checking all your <ref>s and </ref>s to make sure they're paired as they're supposed to be, and make sure there's a <references/> at the end of the Sources section.

David, I believe it is because of the Privacy Level setting.

From your Help Index, click on the letter P for Privacy. Or click below to Jump!. :) .
