Broken Twitter link submit for profile

Postby Metaperspective » Mon Nov 03, 2014 7:49 pm

I just tried submitting the url for my new Twitter

https://twitter.com/theme_camps

in that form, as

http://twitter.com/theme_camps

and then tried just submitting

theme_camps

In all cases I got the same error message:

"The Twitter website address has to be valid. For example http://www.twitter.com/NAME"

As you can see for yourself, the url is valid. Would you please fix this at your earliest convenience? Thanks.

That took care of the problem for me. Thanks, TT120.

Still, this is going to be a nuisance for all future users - the format I used is the standard format for Twitter urls. Why not just lose the validator and save everybody some time and trouble? Answering the same question over and over doesn't seem like something that would be fun for anybody.

But I guess that falls under "suggestions."

I'm glad to hear you figured it out. I'll keep my eyes out for a plugin that doesn't care whether there's a www in the address or not.
