Hi? I can’t edit my Known For section. The Known For control page referenced in the help section of your site goes to a dead link.  Link here: https://pro.imdb.com/known_for?ref_=helpms_ph_nf_knownfor  *Please note - I already am an IMDb Pro member, but the imdbpro webpage and the IMDb pro app do not have visible controls for this.  Please help!

Hi Efren,

I can confirm the link you provided is functioning correctly. Please try copying the link and pasting it directly into your web browser, or using a different browser to access the link. 

Please also be sure that you are logged into IMDbPro before clicking the link.

Let us know if you are still having trouble!

Go to the link below and click on any of the links in the KNOWN FOR section of the help page and you will see that the KNOWN FOR EDIT PAGE is going to dead links 

https://help.imdb.com/article/imdbpro/manage-your-imdb-page/manage-your-filmography/GH8XTYSWKU2P96TA?ref_=helpsect_pro_3_5#

I just copied and pasted text from the IMDb help page - if you click on any of the "Known For" control page blue text links, you will see that they go to dead links and are NOT functioning correctly:

How can I change my “Known For” credits?

While it’s completely up to you, we recommend selecting credits for the projects you would like to prominently feature. This may include work that you feel your fans and others in the entertainment industry know you best for, projects that you are most proud of, your most relevant or recent work. To edit your Known For, go directly to your "Known For" control page or select the edit pen icon on your claimed page, shown on the right of your "Known For" section, and choose the credits you want displayed in your “Known For” section. If you would like to select fewer than four “Known For” credits, you can choose the “leave blank” option. Via the IMDbPro app while editing your Known For, you should first tap on an open slot, then tap the title that you would like displayed in that location. If you want to remove a title from your Known For, tap the title and then tap the "X" that appears below. You can also drag titles in the Known For section to adjust their order.

Hi Efren,

All of these links are working - this means the issue is limited to your browser or account.

Please log in to IMDbPro using a different browser or device. If the problem persists, please write us back with the browsers and devices that you were receiving this error for. Please also write back with the URL to your IMDb page.

Hi Steve, I tried logging in on a Mac through Safari and Chrome & I tried on a PC using Firefox and Chrome and when I log in to my imdbpro account and try accessing these links, I am getting the 500 page error.  This must mean that yes, it is limited to my account.  Here is my page URL: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3596086/

I read somewhere that maybe if you have a lapse in IMDbPro Subscription this ability to edit the Known For Edit page gets lost? I did have a lapse in subscription too, so maybe that is the case?  Can this be remedied? Thank you so much for helping me!

Hi Steve,
It's been a couple of weeks, and I still have this problem.  In your last reply to me you mentioned "All of these links are working - this means the issue is limited to your browser or account. Please log in to IMDbPro using a different browser or device. If the problem persists, please write us back with the browsers and devices that you were receiving this error for. Please also write back with the URL to your IMDb page."   

Here is my info below.  This issue has not been resolved. Is there anything else I can provide to help with this issue?  Thank you!  - Efren

Hi Efren,

You mentioned previously "I did have a lapse in subscription"; to confirm, is your IMDbPro membership currently active?

The page you've referenced will only be accessible when logged into an active IMDbPro membership.

Hi Claire,
Yes, I have an active yearly subscription to IMDb Pro and I still can't access this page. I've tried it on different machines, different browsers, and it still gives me a URL with a 500 error code. (see attached). Thank you for responding!

Thanks, Efren.

I can see in your screenshot that the browser is not recognizing you as a logged-in IMDbPro member. Can you please confirm if you experience this issue with the Known For editing tool after selecting "Log In", or when taking the following steps?
  1. Visit: https://pro.imdb.com
  2. Log in to active IMDbPro membership
  3. Visit Your Page
  4. Select "Edit" next to your Known For titles at the top of your page
Thanks in advance.

Hi!  Correct, I am experiencing this issue with the Known For editing tool after selecting "Log In", or when taking those steps you mentioned.  I do not see an edit icon anywhere around/near the Known For section (see attached).  Thanks again!

Apologies for the continued trouble! I've filed a ticket with our tech team to investigate further.

In the meantime, what titles were you specifically looking to select, and in what order?

Thank you so much Steve!  It's a really weird issue - but I would love to have The Strongest Man in History (2019) first, Duck Dynasty (2016) second and Mothers of Monsters (in Post-Production) third.  Thanks again in advance!
