War of 1812 sticker and category [closed]

The Project manager of William Dunshee has nicely added stickers to his profile.  Additionally, she used the new category button (love it!) to add the categories.  It looks to me like the War of 1812 Vermont sticker that she has added also brings a category with it but it appears below the biography and is incorrect looking.  One cannot see the display of that category in the bio in Edit mode, only when viewing in Profile mode.  Can someone who is more adept at stickers and categories straighten this out?  Thanks so much.

I like to join war of 1812 project. I added this ancestor to your project. I have several others who served in this war.

Hi, Billie:  I copied your message and sent it to the War of 1812 project coordinator.  She might not see it since this question was closed.  Her name is Terri Reynolds.  Reynolds-2390.

Think I found it:

{{War of 1812|Vermont
| startdate = Sep 08, 1814
| enddate = Sep 13, 1814
| units = Battle of Plattsburgh
}}

I think that use of "|Vermont" was not being recognized. I changed it to:

{{War of 1812
| startdate = Sep 08, 1814
| enddate = Sep 13, 1814
| branch = Vermont
| units = Battle of Plattsburgh
}}

Putting "Vermont" in the "branch" container seems to have worked. But never trust my work! Check it first....  :-)
