Wikitree's RootsSearch is not accepting ID of a profile w/new spelling of LNAB.

+3 votes

After researching, I changed the spelling of LNAB, Nelson/Neilson.  Therefore, changing the wikitree ID.  Now when I attempt to use RootsSearch w/new profile ID.  I get this message:  Unable to load the person. Check the ID and try again.  

RootsSearch was accepting ID before the change.  

Great tool, by the way. 

Any Ideas?  Thank you!

Wild guess you created this profile today maybe it some batch work. No problem with his lady Beck-4510 created earlier this week....

Test tomorrow is my guess...

Magnus, there should be no problem with his lady Beck-4510, because her LNAB/profile ID remained the same.  It was only his surname that changed.  

I will see what happens tomorrow.  

Thank you!

Warning it's a guess....

I know.  Just wanted to make clear the difference between the 2 profiles.
What Magnus is trying to say, it that it can take some time after the change for it to be recognized. Wait a day or so and try it again.

Backend database processing needs to take place to re-index the change.
I see.  It's working fine now.

Ahhhh!! well, we'll see.

I got the same message last night while working on some McNeillie profiles. Turned out I'd accidentally spelled it as McMeillie.  So you might want to look more carefully at your spelling.

Go back to changed screen and hit Ctrl F5 then try again. It should fit=x the problem.

You are using the same ID screen just before search. The F5 will change the screens input.
