Don Sutherland reported having problems creating a short link for his profile so I went and created it for him on the back-end, but it's not appearing on his profile page like everyone else's does. Can you please look into why this may have happened and can it be restored?

Sure. He reported the following on 11/19:

Earlier today, I created a CUNY Commons account. At the time, my quick link was I was able to use the quick link. This evening, I noticed that the quick link was gone and no longer operational.

I went ahead and just created the short URL (I didn't find him in the database anyway). This was his response on 11/22:

One minor thing. The url takes me to my profile page. However, even after I edited my profile and saved the changes, the quick link does not show up on my profile page.

Thanks, Sarah. I've manually reset his URL on the BuddyPress side. It's expected that creating a URL at would not refresh the user's profile. However, I'm not sure how the link disappeared in the first place - maybe the user deleted it when editing his profile, and didn't realize how to put it back? If you manage to reproduce, or hear of another instance of the problem, please let me know about the details. For now, I'll consider this a glitch due to a user error.
