Content of Publications widget on profile page being erased on save
Anne Hays, http://cuny.is/annehays, a librarian at CSI, wrote via ZenDensk:
"Hello, every time I try to add my publications to my profile page, once I hit save the entire text is deleted. It's a weird bug! How do I add publications?"
I told her I couldn't replicate the problem, so she sent me the below and attached:
"Screenshot #1: I add the text
Screenshot #2, I push OK, then I click Save Changes
Screenshot #3, after doing that, it goes to this screen where now my publications are gone altogether"
She also wrote "I'm making a website instead, but thought you should know about the bug on the profiles page."
I vaguely remember someone having a similar problem when they were trying to add a lot of text. Does that ring a bell?

The prior ticket for a similar issue with #6101. The issue there was a specific kind of character in the pasted text, which needed to be sanitized. I'm guessing that something similar is happening here since, as you note, Publications saving is working more generally.
Is it possible for Anne to provide exact text that she's putting into the Publications field? If it's coming from an external document like Word, it would be helpful to have the original document - cutting and pasting the content here into Redmine might paper over the root issue.
