Im trying to submit a commercial item to the Lightroom exchange but an error comes up asking for a ' purchase URL for this commercial item' but there is no visible field for this. Looked at the source for the page and the field hidden. Also the page requires you to upload your file but this shouldnt be nesscessary if you are providing a download link. Cant submit my product for review due to these validation issues. Any sugguestions?
I've submitted products in the past with no issue.
Has this page changed?
Thanks for looking.
Thanks for looking - I've just checked the site again and the classic exchange is down.
Get a "Error processing your request" page. Do you know if this just an adobe glich or are they updating the site? The direct link you get in Lightroom to the exchange doesnt work either.
I can access the exchange at http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm?event=productHome&exc= 25 and the upload page at http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/upload/index.cfm this morning.
I bumped the thread to the forum managers, who I believe passed it back to Jeff Tranbury, so perhaps he was getting some bits fixed when you looked.
Sorry, redrex, I've been holding out for a better answer. I don't think this is going to be fixed on the classic exchange site. Here are some things others have done to work around it.
One suggestion I got was to select a non-commercial setting under License Type (such as “Donation” or “Try/Buy”) and include your external download URL in the item description, or support information, for interested parties to copy and paste. A file needs to be uploaded to complete the submission (for instance, a JPEG sample illustrating the effect/preset).
Some contributors have gone to the extent of producing a free “lite” version of their extension (e.g. a single script or action, or subset of patterns, from a larger set) as an example of what’s available in the full version. They also included a PDF outlining the benefits of the full version in the download package.
Can you make either of these work?
