Profile description on user card not showing?


(Sian White) #1

Hi everyone,

We are using Discourse and I have noticed that when I click on a user’s name or picture, the user card doesn’t display what is in the profile description, despite the profile being completed. See mine here:

Is there a way to set this up? Or am I doing something wrong? The ‘hide user profiles from public’ option is unticked.

Thank you!

I’m not seeing a “description” field in my Preferences.

Your User Card here shows "Testing testing"
That isn’t working on your forum?

Exactly, correct - I thought I’d try to do the same thing on here as I did on our forum to see if it was just me. Seems to be working here, but not on ours, and I can’t work out what’s different. Wah!

Do you have any ideas?

Do you have any custom CSS enabled? Anything targetting .bio?

I didn’t see any Settings that jumped out as a possible cause, but maybe this one?

sso overrides bio
Overrides user bio in user profile and prevents user from changing it
