I have been trying to enter the Halloween contests for 2 days. Each time I have tried to use create and add video it clears the video and won`t let me publish.
Also I wanted to create a do it yourself Halloween project all day today the 7th and now the site refuses to accept my still pictures.
This is very frustrating as I have worked hard to get ready to do my entries.
I have thrown up my hands in frustration!!!
What happens when you try to publish the project? Does it have an error message?
I enter the embed code from youtube and try to save my work and it only save photos then I tried entering the embed code and tried to publish and the error message says I need to enter an embed code to publish.
