It seems that About me section has become uneditable, at least for us who are not HTML experts.

Can anyone help me to add a SDL badge to my profile? I deleted the old one (for Trados 2014) and wanted to add a new one (2017), but with no success! If I simply copy-paste the badge, it is seen in the editing view, but not in normal view.

Also, a strange thing happened at the end of October. I had 1630 brownies and then all of a sudden they disappeared and I went to -760 bro

Many thanks,

Yes, it's weird. In order to access the HTML code, you have to click a link that paradoxically says "A WYSIWYG editor is also available", and then, when the WYSIWIG editor opens up, you have to click the "Code view" button (third from the right, looks like </>) to access the HTML. Curiously, when you then click the link that takes you to the simple editor again, the view remains HTML.

Also, to add a picture, you have to be in the non-code view, then after having added the picture, go back to code view so that you can see where to picture was uploaded to, so that you can then move the picture somewhere else.

Can anyone help me to add a SDL badge to my profile?


Option 1:

Go to the page where you edit your bio, then click the "A WYSIWYG editor is also available" link, then click the "Code view" button, and then paste this code at the very bottom:

<img src="http://res.cloudinary.com/proz/image/upload/v1575569872/bb9pmdw1ggc2xok7bbev.png" style="max-width: 100%;">

Option 2:

Go to your Trados account on the Trados web site, and download the badges. Unzip it, select one that you want, and then put in on your Desktop temporarily. Then, go to the page where you edit your bio on ProZ.com, click the "A WYSIWYG editor is also available" link, make sure you're not in code view, put your cursor at the point where you want to add the badge, then click the "Picture" button (5th from the left), and select the badge on your Desktop to upload it.

Thanks a million, Samuel! I used option 2 and it worked!
It's really strange, Proz supposedly wanted to make it better/easier, but it turned out to be much more complicated.

Thanks again, I am sure your reply will be useful to many colleagues.

The same happened to me, I had 117,541 brownies on the 3rd. October and today I have 95,653. I contacted the Support two months ago, they promised to look at it, but so far nothing has been done...

It's strange they don't give any explanation. By the way, what do you use your brownies for?

They have no use whatsoever now, but that doesn't mean, in my opinion, that Proz can use them indiscriminately...
