Form validation error when modifying trivia entry

I've just modified a couple of trivia entries, in one case by linking to a title and in the other case by adding additional information. I selected the relevant radio button "Adding/correcting link(s)" or "Adding further information" in the Explanation section but I still got an error "This item has been rejected. You need to correct this item before it will be accepted. You must provide a valid explanation."

Only when I selected "Other" and wrote the explanation manually was the submission accepted.

I've not seen this before, so it looks as if it's a new bug that's crept in.

Hi Martin -

Can you try again and let us know if this issue is still occurring?  If so, as Jeorj requested above, please post a screen grab of the display here, as well as confirm what title page you are trying to update and we can investigate further.

I've now submitted a few more trivia updates and I've not seen the problem again. Looks as if it was temporary, for several updates in succession yesterday.

I'll see what happens and if I see ti again I'll take a screen grab and post it to this thread, together with title/name details.
