Can you provide the profile ID where this is happening?

Maybe what happened is what happened to me the other day?  Someone in my tree passed away.  When I went to enter the date of death I got an error message:

Error: Invalid data. The following must be corrected:

  1. This person has data indicating they are both living (Active WikiTree User, Death Date 'still living', Death Place 'still living') and not living (Death Date 2018-04-11).

You need to deselect the radio button beneath the death date that says, "still living"

where is a radio button at moment do not see it.
It's literally just beneath the field where you would enter the date.

Thank you for replying.  I was trying to enter George Edward Roper's wife (my aunt) into the file as she died in Feb.  I also tried entering their son's name as he died a few years back. Also Aunt Lillian's parents names.  I only have their names and her siblings names no other information.  Than I tried to enter my great grandmother's parents and he was still living also!

I will try again later and see if I can make progress.  I only noticed once one of the pages asked if living? The rest of time it didn't show "still living" but it still was rejecting the information.  Thanks for helping. Have a nice day.

Not really great with computers and still haven't learned a lot with Windows 10.

I know about Window 10, meaning I haven't figured out what is so great about it.  Who has time?  You need either a birthdate or date of death to enter a profile.  If you don't know, try to make an educated estimate.  You can use the template {{Estimated Date}} and explain in the biography that you estimated the date by the age of her first child, or whatever reason.
That is the crazy thing   I was doing estimates if there is no information

and it usually works but today the computer was just giving me a hard time.

I just went in again to add my cousin, Aunt Lillian and Uncle George Roper's son. and I see where it is saying living under the death date

weird.  At moment can't see where to unlock this item.

Thanks for communicating with me.
