Re: Cannot save .torrent file when uploading

If you get a torrent upload error ("Upload of file failed" or being returned to this page), here are a couple things to look for:

- your announce url may be incorrect. Open the torrent in a text editor and make sure the announce url above is listed near the top of the torrent file. There should be a number "56" in front of the announce url. Also, make sure it isn't truncated - it should not have any "..." in the middle of it!


- the file size is too big. Some torrent making applications make HUGE torrent files. Try using Azureus or uTorrent to make the torrent file.

- the torrent is already on the tracker. The tracker looks at the torrent hash. To get by this, change your text file slightly and make a new torrent. Also, give the torrent file a slightly different name.

If your torrent uploads fine, but then when you hit submit you get kicked back to this page:

- look to see if there are errors listed above the form. They will be in bold red.

- if there are no errors, it is probably that you reached the max length of the thread title or thread body. So, remove some of the text (you have to have some in the text boxes or you will get a bold red error) and after you are successful uploading the thread, you may add additional information in the second post.
