Problem with posting a deal at BUXR

submitted on December 16, 2012 by psplove in "Buxr Website / Contests"
Last night I tried to posted a deal for Cheryl's store. This store is not in black listed. But the system still not let me posted. The message show up "Unable to read from the URL". It's any one have the same problems?

That's was a very good deal for 30% off sitewide and one day only. Sad

    I have had some "unable to read the url" but not because it was a black listed store. I'm sure Admin will be able to give you the answer.

    Unfortunately there is still not fix for this problem, however there is a workaround for online deals: instead of using the deal URL during submission (first page) select the store from the list. This will post your online deal linking to the store's home page.

    I get this problem quite a bit, especially with really long URLs.

    So yeah, then I just pick the store & put the direct URL (if I have one) in the comments area.

    But then, if it's an emailed deal, you have the problem of everybody knowing your email addresses. Confused

      Depending on the URL, often the e-mail address can be edited out without corrupting the link.

      Its just a matter of knowing when and where to cut the link.

      If you look at enough URL links over time it becomes easier to spot where the cut points are, and when they can be cut.

      Here is a similar but not entirely applicable example.

      Link #1: http ://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007KEZMX4/ref=s9_simh_gw_p23_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0C0N5R4AYSBPYNS2B2EN&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1389517282&pf_rd_i=507846

      Link #2: http ://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007KEZMX4

      I inserted a false space just after the "http" in the URL so you could see the entire links, but both will actaully get you to the same product page. Often the extra bits at the end are tracking/origin info, sometimes including your email.
