Issue Posting Playlists in the Playlist Exchange

Hello Spotify Community, 

 

I'm unable to post any playlists within the playlist exchange. I've added many playlists in the past but the now the feature wont accept any playlists I now try to post.

 

Everytime I post a link.. the link always previews but after I click 'Post'the following message appears......

'You must include a Spotify Playlist URI/link to create a post in the Playlist Exchange'

 

I've tried posting from my phone and PC yet nothing seem to work. I have also attempted at posting different playlists but stll no luck. 

 

I would appreciate any sort of help in this matter.

 

Many Thanks. John

Hey @Funkpimp72 

 

The issue lies within the way playlist links look now. There is a missing element that the Playlist Exchange seems to need.
Let me explain. 🙂

This is what the playlist link and URI look like:

 

spotify:playlist:4TbyuRDj5DjZQwcPEFM1Zs
https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4TbyuRDj5DjZQwcPEFM1Zs

This is how they used to look like (that works in Playlist Exchange):

 

spotify:user:1185903410:playlist:4TbyuRDj5DjZQwcPEFM1Zs
https://open.spotify.com/user/1185903410/playlist/4TbyuRDj5DjZQwcPEFM1Zs

All you have to do is edit your playlist links to have your username in them. Copy your profile's url/URI to find out what your username is. 🙂

 

Try it out and let me know how it goes!

Hello Sebasty,

 

I've just followed your instructions and it worked, I've just published a playlist without any problems. This was beggining to drive me mad to be honest! 

 

Thank you so much for your help and taking the time to respond.

 

Regards. FP-72

 

Thank You so much Sebasty, this solution just worked for me too!!! 

An example would be helpful. What should it look like? Im having the same issue.

 

 

Incredible, i have the same problem and ive never post any playlist yet, so for me its been a struggle. Please Spotify fix this! how can we do?

LOL and it has actually worked in the body of the reply here!

 

I actually just pasted:

 

(spotify:playlist:1JssNER1XC8OTOtFB7AIWU)

 

...and it appears to work in the post text box but NOT the box you paste a playlist link into! interesting.
