Cam (camthereader) | 605 comments I was updating this book
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

and when I clicked to save I get a message that says,

"1 error prohibited this record from being saved:

Author url is malformed. URLs look like: http://www.goodreads.com"


Anyone knows what this means?

Were you trying to add something to the URL field?

Edit: no, you probably were not. This is a bug.

Second edit: but it appears to only affect this book. Weird. I asked someone to take a look at it.

That's because one of our developers fixed the issue. (And explained to me what is was so I could probably fix it if it happens again.)

Dee (austhokie) | 839 comments ahhh.

out of curiosity - what was the issue?

The author URL (on the author's profile page) has been entered incorrectly.

Dee (austhokie) | 839 comments that was actually one of my thoughts...but I didn't try to look because then it worked
