"unable to read from url" how do we get around this?

submitted on March 29, 2014 by mdshopper1 in "Sales / Promotions"
i am trying to submit a specific deal. even when i just put the simple main page of the website it says "unable to read from url". is there any way to get around this and still be able to post the deal?

    Just go ahead and select the store instead of pasting URL and submit the deal you do the usual way. When the deal is submitted, the URL will correctly point to your deal automagically! It has worked for me every time for this same issue.

    Another point, if your URL starts with https, change it to http. You can also edit the link after you submit the deal, if necessary. Certain sites do time out when submitting a deal.

    the store is not on the drop down list so i cannot choose the store.

    i also removed the "s" and it still has the same "unable to read from the url.". i cannot move forward to the TAGS page.

    Send the deal link through feedback and have admin look at it, maybe they can fix it for you.

      Turns out that it was necessary to edit the link after submission.

    The store is now added, so next time you can select it from the list (if the same problem happens again).

    "unable to read from url" is a very old issue which unfortunately still has no fix, so have to use all sorts of workarounds.
