The validator allows me to request an approval but it is automatically rejected by email


#1

We are trying to apply for *.appy-geek.com. (we already got approved for *.news-republic.com) but for some reason, something strange happens.

  • The card validates in the Validator.
  • I submitted once again for Summary card
  • I instantly received an email saying : “The URL you provided for appy-geek.com to use the summary card did not validate. Please make sure the page contains valid metadata, then reapply for a Twitter card.”
    The domain is *.appy-geek.com and the associated Twitter account is @Appy_Geek. The sample URL I use : http://uk.appy-geek.com/Web/ArticleWeb.aspx?regionid=4&articleid=9324279
    Our Twitter dev account is @MRDevAccount.
    We looked at all the various discussions around this kind of issue but found nothing to help us have our cards approved.

We already got approved a few weeks ago for *.news-republic.com.
Example : http://uk.news-republic.com/Web/ArticleWeb.aspx?regionid=4&articleid=9324279

Found the problem : querystring (params passed in the URL as key=value) are not “allowed”.

This part of the url was causing the problem => ?regionid=4&articleid=9324279

Solution : have a page without querystring…

I hope this helps.
