Hi,
When trying to enter credits for  specific episodes in the following series, I get the message:
"Sorry, field browser not available" in the episodes box.

The series are:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10042182/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10042850

Please advise,
Thanks,
Yossi

Thanks for this, but this is not a solution to the problem I reported.

Hi, YossiT:

Are you still experiencing the issue? If not so, I believe I may have identified the problem...

Yossi,

That's good to hear.

Were these two titles submitted to the IMDb in the past few days or have they been in the database for a while?

The field browser "goes behind" the display interface... I mean, it takes some time for episodes that have just been approved (and got a title page) to populate the episode browser (also, an episode fills the "year" tab earlier than the "season" tab).

For instance, at the moment I'm writing this, the series Play School displays up to first season's episode #1.613 (note the title-const tt10065442)...


...while at the same time the episode browser shows data up to episodes #1.290 (tt10037458) and #1.354 (27 Aug 1965) (tt10043980), in the season and year tabs respectively...

...being the remaining episodes (with the highest title-consts) yet to be caught by the field browser.

The Sorry, field... problem arises when all the episodes of a series are still in that kind of limbo between the display interface and the browser interface. When a first episode finally arrives at the browser, the browser shows up correctly and the problem disappears; from that moment on, every episode which is still in that limbo simply won't be listed (see images above). So whenever this error occurs, it just a matter of time... wait a bit and it will solve itself.

Cheers!

Hi all,

Looks like I'm late to the party! 

As you've mentioned, I'm now able to add credits as expected: 



It looks like these two series were only very recently added to the database - as mentioned by the other users, this will be the cause for the issues you experienced in the submission form. 

Please allow some extra time after title approval before trying to submit additional information and everything should work okay. 

Have a great day!

Joel
