Hi, Bill!

Have you been able to resolve this? I see that you now have 4 tags on your profile.

If it's resolved, you can use the "Close" option underneath your message to let us know.

Thanks!! :-)

Are you using the page https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Following and clicking on "Enter New Tag" after you add the tag?

You also need to enter at least a brief comment before you press enter the tag.

You must click 'Enter Tag'

After this, look at the top of the page, do you get a message

 'Tag added for...'?

if not, there is a problem with the Tag. Tags cannot have spaces in them. Replace the spaces with _
