    I'm trying to add my first custom user field on the latest version. I added about 100+ options. When I go to save I get this error:

    The following error occurred:

    Please enter an ID using only a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and _ characters."
    My field id is simply "location"
    It is all lower case, one word, on spaces, yet I still get the error. What might cause this? I'd really hate to have to re-type all 100+ fields...
    Thanks in advance.

    That error is talking about the values you entered for the choices (left column):

    Ah, I assumed it was the field id. I had a few dashes in the left color that were causing the problem. Thanks!
