    That website does not exist, to my knowledge. It's mysticmountainsskihire.com.au, which is what it says wherever I can edit it. Where does the mysticmountains.com.au come from?

    The 'old & crusty' appeals to my soh. The old bit is reasonably accurate. Only about another 750 and I become pool room material, anyway.

    Edit it


    No could have put the URL there except you - the status message probably ported over from some other profile field during the migration from UBB

    Nope. Can't fix it. On edit, it's correct. As you said, there must be some field it's using that's no longer accessible.

    I can edit anything on that page, but it doesn't affect what shows when I click on my avatar for instance.

    @teckel

    Ok - thanks,

    So pls confirm if you see a field called 'Status message' as the first element on that personal details page ?



    If not, it must be disabled somewhere and I'll have to go digging for it.

    No, it's not there. The first thing is Avatar, followed by Custom title.

    Ok, found it.

    I have opened up 'Profile Posts' just for your account. Please edit and remove the URL then I will reset it.

    Status updates and Profile Posts is a feature we decided to not run with. It's the shit side of social media's 'look at me' self-aggrandising.

    Thanks. I couldn't remove it, but I could change it. (If I put in a space and saved it, it changed nothing, but I could change it to the correct url) Anyway, I'm happy now. LOL
    Agree with your comment about social media.

    The amount of weird cruft that can accumulate under the hood of some systems is truly amazing and frightening. Leaky abstractions...
