I am trying to create a channel and I am stuck at the add a category page. I need to add a custom category, but it will not allow me to. I keep getting "An error was encountered with the form. Please correct the highlighted fields." and there are no highlighted fields. I can't get beyond this step. Please help!
I am just trying to add a category through the Roku Developer UI. It asks you to enter a category, so I do and then it just doesn't save it. This is at the top of the page..
Unfortunately, it's not at all unusual for links in Roku's documentation to be broken. There's a thread around here someplace where you're supposed to post broken links and sometimes they actually get fixed.
Anyway, does this help?
Are you trying to use Direct Publisher to build your channel? If so, you can (and should) define your categories within the Json feed file.
Oh understood. Are you adding a custom category? Because i believe the category has to be one that is predefined by Roku or else it will fail.
Update: my apologizes the a genre is predefined by Roku not categories.
You either add a category through the developer portal, or, in your feed file. You should not define them in both places
My test channel uses several custom categories that are defined in my feed file. I did not define them in the portal.
@FaithsonHave you tried defining the categories within your feed file?
