For some reason, I cannot edit my profile. I tried to make a change in my bio and I tried to add a few of my social media sites. I log in all of my updates, then I press the save changes button, but it never saves it. Am I doing something wrong?
Sorry you are having problems updating your profile.
I just logged in and updated the facebook, twitter, and bio information for an account using Windows 8.1 and Chrome 42.0.2311.135 m and was able to do so without any errors and the update was reflected immediately.
I would suggest clearing your browser cache, restarting your computer, and trying another browser like Firefox.

If you are still having problems after those steps, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to assist you further.
I did everything you suggested even added firefox, but it's just not updating my changes.
Thanks for the information Missy.
I was able to reproduce the issue with your account.
At this time it does not appear to be an issue that affects all accounts, but there is no workaround for affected accounts.
I have shared this information with our engineering team and we hope to have a solution soon. Thank for your continued patience and I hope you have a good weekend.
I just confirmed that the profile now is recording change to the "In the Spotlight" and bio sections of the profile.
As always, make sure to clear your browser cache and restart your computer if you have any problems.
You can just log in to your account and then delete your precent data then enter your corect dataa.a.a.a.
I'm experiencing the same difficulty Missy Smith so it's not just you; when one tries to edit the ' Bio ' section, or amend the ' In the spotlight ' function on the ' Edit Profile ' menu, it won't have it. I've tried a dozen times each time over about a seventeen hour period on a laptop and used an outside public source desktop computer as well using Windows 7 with browser specifications Google Chrome and Internet Explorer respectivley. These bugs are usually ironed out fairly quickly though.
Thank you Romeos Quill. Very nice of you to let me know that I'm not the only one experiencing the difficulties. I'm sure now with more people with this issue it will be dealt with soon. Thanks!
I have confirmed that your account is also affected and have shared these further details with our engineering team. So I hope we can get this resolved soon and thanks for your patience!
I have discovered Matthew, that it did allow me to change my picture and background, but it has yet to let me change my bio and add my social networks. So, yes, I'm trying to be patient, as I now know that I am not the only one having this issue. Thanks, and have a great weekend as well.
I am having trouble with altering my spotlight settings also. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Okay, this is why I dreaded the coming changeover -- Google authorship was working just fine under the old format, but the new profile page won't recognize my Google profile URL because I have an old Google member profile.Which works just fine with Google authorship, but Hubpages' new profile...

While using Firefox, I'm trying to add my image to my profile. The image is uploaded, but the popup asking me to crop the image doesn't scroll with the page and can't be moved in the window. The result is that I cant crop my photo properly. (ie: I cant drag all the way to the bottom right of where...

I have noticed for the last couple of months at least that it is almost impossible to get an author's profile loading fully. Most of the time, I cannot get the profile to load at all. Sometimes, I manage to see it partially. I'm wondering if it is the Pinterest style soup used to feature hubs in an...

So I went from following seven people and having nine followers to... Following two people and having one follower. All of my updates (mine, I mean) are gone. I have several pages full of just Shirley Anderson's Updates (which is fine, but strange, as I this is the *first* time I've seen updates...
