Card Validation Failed


#1

I am trying to use Twitter cards for a client’s website and I seem to be at a dead end. I have checked the documentation and troubleshooting, but I still can’t get it to validate correctly.

http://elmsleigh.co.uk is one website and it asks for me to Request Approval, then I request approval I then get this error…

*.elmsleigh.co.uk whitelist request for failed
ERROR: Card validation failed

I have triple checked my markup and even curled the url with Twitterbot and curl is working as expected.

I also have my own website https://michaelbrooks.co.uk but it just outright says that the website isn’t whitelisted and won’t allow me to move any further, Could you please investigate and let me know what I am doing wrong?

Thank you.

You do not need to ask for any whitelisting in these cases, per our FAQ topic.

The Elmsleigh site does not have a valid Card type specified in the twitter:card tag.

Your personal site uses smart quotes instead of plain " quotes so the tags cannot be found by the crawler, plus it also does not specify a valid Card type.

Suppose that serves me right for copy and pasting someone else’s code. Thank you so much for your help, I think I must have thought that an actual summary goes on the twitter:card meta tag when I should have left it as is.
