I keep getting a "URL is invalid" message for the Misc. Link section. This is the only thing holding me up and our video will be released in 3 days. Help!

Hi Bill -

Can you clarify what IMDb page you are looking at on the site?

I'm trying to set up the page for the video we shot in April in LA, "School of Thought." It will release on Pearson Education's site on Monday. Here's my reference number:

130620-163837-222200

The URL we would like to use is: researchnetwork.pearson.com/online-learning/videos

Though it will be available on youtube after its debut. We'd like to get the page up to correspond with its release, though.

Also, thanks so much for your help. It's been so frustrating trying unsuccessfully all week to get this up.

I took a look at the title submission and I observed some unacknowledged errors and warnings within the submission form itself.

If you are having difficulty entering your URL within the submission form, please make sure that it is properly formatted.

website.com - description (date if known) (language if not English)

For Example:

Variety - article (12/02/09)

Facebook - fan site

Wikipedia

Le Monde - article (French)

Please try correcting your URL Description within the form, also be sure to acknowledge any other warnings/errors and try submitting.

With regard to the URL itself, make sure you start with http:// (or www.), otherwise the address isn't recognized as a URL.

I've tried simply submitting Pearson.com, which I think is "properly formatted," isn't it? I guess the language is tripping me up. "Properly formatted?" "Unacknowledged errors within the submission form?" Unacknowledged by me or IMDB? I see that some areas are yellow and needing attention, though I'm not sure what more I can do or how I can be more specific.

As pbn stated above, you need to include the full link for IMDb to recognize it.

Try this instead:
http://www.pearson.com/

You will also notice, that Get Satisfaction recognized the link when written out completely, but does not recognize Pearson.com as a link.
