Hi,

I'm trying to create my first news item, I set it up, all looking ok, but when I submitted the item I received this...
'ERRORS Please upload images to KVR rather than linking to them from another server'.

I did upload a cover jpg image using the 'image uploader' and embedded a couple of Soundcloud players using code from Soundcloud.

Can anybody advise as I tried sorting this without success.

Thanks

Just paste the SoundCloud page link in the item. The player will be created automatically when the item is displayed.

Thanks for the reply, but that works fine.
It's when I submit the item that I get the error message?

What soundcloud code are you posting. It just has to be a link:

e.g. https://soundcloud.com/path/to/page

i.e. no HTML.

I used the embed code

like this:

<iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" allow="autoplay" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=ht ... "></iframe>

Don't.

Paste a soundcloud link like I said and It'll work.
