Can't publish a collection. Answered

Hi, I am having a problem trying to publish a collection.

When I hit publish, I get an error message that says "Opps, something went wrong!". If I click the x on the message the message goes a way but the Publish Your Collection pop up stays with a cursor that spins forever. Please look at the screenshot for reference.

Here is as much information as I can provide.

Collection id is OYNUVW5IAWDJBHYU, currently listed as a draft collection.

Slackware Linux 14.1
Firefox 31.7.0
Chromium 43.0.2357.130 (64 bit)

https://www.instructables.com/editCollection/OYNUVW5IAWDJBHY

The steps to reproduce this is:

Select You -> Drafts
Find my Collection and press draft (url above).
Press Publish
Press Publish on Choose Cover Image pop up.

I get the error message.

I know it can be annoying, but have you tried creating a new collection with the same projects? It might be there is something wrong with that specific collection.

I will give it a try. I will start with a single item and try publishing it.

Good idea to start small, but remember to add 5 or it will tell you you don't have enough projects.

So I found out. :D

That worked. I have it published now. I will go through and start moving articles over.

Still, this is a bug that needs to be fixed.

Does it have five or more entries? Five is the minimum for publishing a collection.

I just checked. 18 entries. One of which is a collection of someone else has put together.
