When clicking on any of my links in the confirmation e-mail, I receive the above message. I'd like to have something to place out there to allow others to find me. Can someone be kind enough to help please?
Don't worry, you do exist. Use this exact link, the URL for your profile page:
When I click on the above link I still get " Sorry, that user does not exist"
Me too! That is highly unusual, as the hyperlink is correct. I clicked on your profile picture, arrived at your profile page, and it produces the same URL.
Looking closer, I can now se that the apostrophe (') is supposed to be included in the hyperlink, and it shows as being a part of the URL. However, when mousing over the hyperlink, it seems that the apostrophe is missing from the resulting URL. This may be the source of your problem.
I suggest you contact HubPages. Include a link to this thread:
I tried the link and got the same message but when I clicked on the blue name at the side of you picture I got to you profile page and the link was
which as you can see is slightly different and works.
I just have discovered it but not before you.
Fraser, your link seems to be working! The garbled text is created because the browser does not recognize the apostrophe, and that is the probable source of this problem. In your version, when mousing over the link there is no apostrophe, and therefore the link works, I think.
When I clicked on the blue text, I got this (as before): http://hubpages.com/profile/Jack+o'Nory
Again, see the apostrophe is shown. But if I mouse over it, the status line in my browser shows the same address without the apostrophe. Clicking on the link still produces the same error message.
It's a computer thing... some programmes don't like apostrophes in links.
Something to do with real language when you set up your computer keyboard, IE UK English Versus USA English there are subtle differnces in keyboard response.
I only know this because it happened to me as I wandered around the world and found annoying things happening with certain keyboard key strokes.
I think it's also the reason why we are not allowed to use non alpha numeric keys in passworword Etc.
Hope this helps
It does, enormously! I'm wondering why it was even possible for the OP to sign up under a user name with an apostrophe.
It probably only screws up when the programe converts the user name into a link
you can see the subtle difference when it uses %27 to replace the apostrophe
