Gig Problems containing "Description contains illegal characters"

There’s not much we can tell from that text as they’re all valid characters. It may not be including all the characters that were entered into the gig description or showing non-printable characters that are causing the issue.

You’ve successfully posted gigs before. Have you done anything differently this time? Have you entered tab characters or other special characters that you didn’t previously? Or pasted stuff from Word or software? If so try cutting everything and pasting it as plain text. If that doesn’t work you could try cutting it and re-typing it from an empty text box.

Solved. I had to take out all spaces all punctuation and all lines so it now looks like a bad autotranslate. Nice one Fiverr


You can still add some punctuation and a blank line if you wanted.
eg. you’ve already added a comma and a full stop so that proves that they’re still allowed so you could add more of those where needed. You could also look at what other recent gigs are using punctuation-wise to see what’s allowed.

This is my description but it is showing illegal characters? Why?

Check the previous suggestions in the thread eg. make sure there are no tab characters in it. If you pasted it from Word paste it into notepad or something that will remove any illegal characters.

Thank you sir… for your help

I did also realize that using the ‘bullet point’ feature from word leads to the above error. You can instead copy paste your description and later edit using Fiverr’s bullet-point feature.

can someone Help me with my gig … Description contains illegal characters

By pasting the text into the forum it’s removed any illegal characters. Look at the other posts in this thread and do what it says there, eg. don’t paste from Word into the gig description (which might contain tabs etc.). You can paste into notepad or something to remove special characters and then copy that. If that still doesn’t work you could try deleting it and re-typing it manually in the gig description field.


Thank you UK1000 i tried all the above ans but it did not work… but your last line
and re-typing it manually in the gig description field
i tried typing it manually it worked all the same i just typed it manual .
