Do any of you have this weird problem where if you go to edit your profile, and then go back to re-edit it, the edit field appears to be blank?

That’s happening to me. And a conversation with Xkeeper revealed that my MacBook Pro is inserting smart quotes instead of regular quotes, which causes the board to choke when it tries to format the content for editing.

So I turned that off in System Preferences. To no effect.

So now I’m lost on what to do next. Any ideas?

EDIT: Oh crap. Just realized this is in the wrong forum. Can someone move this?

Moved to the appropriate forum.

Your issue is probably equivalent to this issue. If it's just the quotation marks, then you should be able to copy and paste "this" and use it for quotation marks instead.

If turning off smart quotes truly disabled them, or if the above doesn't work, then you may have another offending character in your bio. Keep an eye out for any other special characters, and replace them as necessary.

I need to just fix the damn bug. It just requires editing all the instances of whatever escaping is used now to the one with the fix (i.e. long and tedious)
