Hello, I'm trying to seed my first show. When I browse to the torrent file and click upload, I get the below error message. Can anybody explain why and help me to solve this problem. Thanks!

IWTL.torrent:
Invalid announce url! It MUST be http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/tracker/announce.php

:confused:

Yes, you need to put the correct announce address into the client you are using to make the torrent. That address is what you need to put as the tracker address.

This is just so much more difficult that what it really needs to be!!! I've gone into utorrent > create new torrent > for select source, I select the desired directory > for trackers, I've pasted "http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/tracker/announce.php" > I click "start seeding" > "create and save as" > I put the file someplace > I go through the trader's den form upload page and when I try to upload the torrent file, I get the same error message as found below. Somebody please give me some piece of advice or suggestion that makes this less than a grueling and frustrating process. If it was really this much trouble for everybody, nobody would do it, so I'd like for somebody to clue me in.

I'm sorry I've never seen that error before. Try making yor torrent file with a different program. For PC users I believe Make Torrent is a good one.
