I cant post playlists to the playlist exchange?

Despite cutting and pasting my playlist links, it keeps telling me they are invalid? 

 

Anyone know now what I’m doing wrong?

Hey @fresh_new, thanks for coming to the Spotify Community!

 

Here are some steps to share playlists on the Community:

  • Navigate to the playlist you'd like to share on Spotify
  • Click the ( . . . ) button next to the PLAY button
  • Select Share
  • Select Copy Spotify URI

Once you've got the Spotify URI, back on the community:

  • While writing a topic or reply:
  • Click the Insert/edit link button (Screen Shot 2019-10-10 at 12.01.25.png)
  • Paste the copied Spotify URI into the URL box
  • Click Ok

When you click POST, the playlist will link in correctly! If you can't figure it out or need more help, let me know :)

Hi Jacob

 

followed your steps to the letter, 

 

Firstly it doesnt copy the link across to the link box, only into the text of the post leaving the link box empty (not the pop up box from clicking insert link as you suggested)

 

if i try to post with the link box empty it asks me to post a vaild URI link in the box

 

if i copy the link into the box and then post, the playlist link disappears from the box and it asks me to post a vaild URI again

 

I use chrome, could this be the problem?

 

thanks for your help

Hi fresh_new 

If when you paste your playlist URI is

spotify:playlist:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

then you type

spotify:user:fresh_new:playlist:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

(if fresh_new is your user name)

 

It works for me!

@fresh_new,

 

When you paste the URI into the link pop-up box, does it look like this?

If not, could you provide a screenshot?

@Louis_the-King,

 

If you click the "OK" button and then the "POST" button then the text link you made will turn into an embed. Let me know if you need more help!
