[SOLVED] Personal website URL not accepted in user Profile section

I've just tried to update my website details to https://head_on_a_stick.srht.site/ but when I enter the URL into the box it claims that "The website URL you entered is invalid."

What am I doing wrong? TIA.

It doesn't like the underscores.

Edit: try https://head%5Fon%5Fa%5Fstick.srht.site/
Not accepted either.

Thanks seth.

@admin: is there any way to allow that URL? I can't change my username at Source Hut.

The profile is part of fluxBB, so no that isn't going to be fixed / updated.  But you could use something like tinyurl.
