Ensure this value has at most 250 characters (it has 312)

I am trying to submit an addon but can’t because the form doesn’t let me showing that error on title. My addon supports i18n and so I went and looked into the other locale description which was really showing 312 characters and I shortened that to be less than 250 as well but still can’t seem to submit. Any suggestion, idea, why?

Unfortunately, it’s not clear to me what’s causing your issue. However, since it appears you may be new to the site and this is your first add-on I wanted to let you know it’s easy to change the summary once your add-on is in the system, so it might be fastest to enter an even shorter summary, submit it (if possible), and then work through the issue once it is in.

So, it’s a known bug from years back. I knew that but didn’t know what’s the fix. I will write a detailed way of tackling this(I know how now) after I complete the submission, so people who search for this in the future can have a reference point on how to fix it.


How to fix it. It said * Ensure this value has at most 50 characters (it has 52) for my add-on title, but it only has 12 characters actually.

I was frustrated with this bug for a while and finally was able to submit the extension. I didn’t make screenshots thought but it’s pretty easy to find what for the workaround. Inspect the input field/textarea that is giving you issues, look into the html that corresponds to it and find greyed-out blocks that represent locales supported by the extension. Remove all of them and try submitting again.
