problems with the "location" feature

I can't get my user CP to let me put my location below my avatar. When I go to "edit details" it has me type in my location... and then doesn't post it under my avatar.

Any ideas for how to fix this?

Thanks.

I entered mine in the City/Town field, farther down the screen. I had the same problem as you, and entered one comment in Location, another in City/Town , and the City/Town one is what shows up in my posts.

Ahh, so scrolling down is actually useful....

Thanks, Harley. Problem solved. I'm glad someone else has insomnia tonight.

It's great to see your location now, Urchina! It really helps me a lot sometimes if I have a geographical context for a person and their posts. It gives you another dimension.

Sorry I didn't have insomnia last night. (No, I'm not REALLY sorry but you know what I mean! Glad that you got help and got it figured out).

I'm still suffering from 25 years of out of hours work. I sleep through the night, now, which took about a year after ER to happen. But my nights tend to run from 2-3 am through about 9 or 10 in the morning. I should probably work on shifting that around to a more normal sleep schedule. But anyway, glad to be of help.
