User CP - Profile Details not persisting

So I've been trying to update my profile details in the user control panel, and the changes I make do not seem to be saving. For example, I set my location, model owned, etc. and when I make a new post it does not show the location in the upper right corner like I see on a lot of people's posts.

Then when I go back into the settings, everything I entered is gone.

Any ideas? Is this a common problem?

I have also had weird behavior with my signature. It seems to revert back to my old signature randomly, I haven't been able to nail it down. Sometimes it just doesn't save any updates I make.

Are you clicking the Save button at the bottom of the page before leaving the page?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Yes. Actually, I just went back and it looks like some of the details are there... but it's not showing in the upper right of my posts still.

Edit:
It looks like it persisted my birthday (second section) just fine, but details from the first section (bio, location, etc.) are not saving.

The upper right will only show your join date, location and post count. You have to save each page, not just once at the end of the edits.

Yeah, I expected that and that's actually what I'm trying to do... show my location. That's the main thing that's bugging me. Is it expecting me to type in a valid city/state combination and just not telling me? I was just trying to enter "Northeast Ohio" but maybe it doesn't like that...

Edit: Nevermind, looks like that's not the case based on fatalerror's location.

I've been missing from that list before. I just click his name to access his profile.

And I'm definitely saving each page. In this case I am talking ONLY about the User CP -> Edit Your Details section
