Can't post a Squawk

I didn’t want to wake up an old Discussion thread, and I could not find any answers in the Discussion boards.

I must be missing something, but I am wondering what are the requirements to post a Squawk? I was trying to post a story today and it just kept telling me the URL was invalid.

So I tried multiple different URLs from different sites, about the same story but none of them would let me submit. The topic has never been Squawked before (I checked), but it was an article from a few year ago, does that make any difference?

I had a Headline/Title and a description, and it would not work, so I tried changing the headline and the description that all still made no difference.

A dialogue box just keeps telling me (URL Link does not work)
