[SOLVED] Collections Issues

I can't create them.

Then, when IT Support pushes it through, I cannot add any items/links. Not by copy/paste link from LT pages, not by copy/paste link from YouTube.

What am I doing wrong? I click "Save as draft" and it gives me error messages no matter what I try.

You need to create a collection and save.
Then come back into EDIT and create a collection item where you must type the name (at least partial) of a song that already exists in LT - I usually type partial name and click to choose the exact song.
If song does not exist in LT, add a song first, link video there & then come back to add a collection item. Good luck.

Thank you. I will go back to the library computer tomorrow and try again.

To be clear, when I create a collection item, two fields appear: the top (required) and the bottom (?not required).

In which field do you "type the partial name"?

The top one.

And please check your "Drafts" page, we found one collection of yours there.

Ok. I thought they were both drafts. It's a broad subject so I'm breaking it into two collections.

Don't see you in chat - not that good myself - ping me

Ok, good news!
If you ignore the error, your collection is added.
You can come back and EDIT adding collection item!

Ping me if an issue

[@BreezyDay] When you create a new collection, only "Title" and "Description" fields are required. So you're not supposed to see any error messages if you fill them, they're enough to save a draft. Could you explain which errors and when you see?

I also got an error - it was unspecific error - doing that. Also, I was able to add the same collection name twice. Once I saw on the right side, in comments that collection was added, I went back and was able to add collection items to the initial one and was able to remove the duplicate.

I was unable to copy the png image of the error page into my comment but I put it in temporarily as my avatar. Enlarge my avatar. Also, I copied/pasted exact message:"Error
The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later."

That image/message appears immediately after I click "Save as Draft", even though I'm 100% sure that I've put text into both required fields (title, descrip).

Just ignore this error. Publish collection. Then go back into edit and start adding collection items.

That didn't work either. When I clicked Publish, I got the exact same error message. I am using a public library computer, but their network setup seems really good and up-to-date.

Also, yesterday I published two and no one has replied. I don't think anyone can see the two that I attempted to publish.

It worked. Ignore the error. Add item and I will comment on it

Member

I published 'test #3 ignore'. Do you see?

Issue was resolved although you may want to check into this Error that confused multiple people. Thanks
