Creating category for Klapperich One Name Study

+5 votes


I can't get these categories to stick. I've added several others in the same One Name Study but this is challenged.  Is there a reason why?

I just looked and it seems the problem is you are making  Klapperich Name Study a subgroup of Line Langenfeld, Klapperich Name Study. You got it backwards. It happens. just remove it as a subgroup and flip it around.

Remember, you don't add  Line Langenfeld, Klapperich Name Study as a category to  Klapperich Name Study in the edit box, you do it the other way around. When in doubt, check a working one. :D

I just tried putting those categories on a profile, and got the red banner saying they don't exist (it's part of the new category button on the Edit page).  Click 'Save Anyway', and remember to check the profile's main page, where they will probably be red and you will have to nest them under Klapperich Name Study like the others.

I did that and they stay red, others work fine. Could there be a character limit set for these category names?

Well, it looks like Steven sorted it out for you. smiley Thanks, Steven!

no worries. New methods sometimes have kinks and sometimes we forget what we are doing on occasion. I always try to look at one that works and figure out what is different. That fixes it 98% of the time. :)
