Hmm... please try to change your post:

  1. If that's a question that other users might know how to answer (the only appropriate content on this site), please ask that question clearly.
  2. If you are reporting a bug, then please do it properly, understanding this site's rules clearly telling that bug reports are off-topic here. Make sure you provide enough information how to reproduce the problem (current text does not allow e.g. me to understand what do I need to click and in which order to see it).

In any case, make sure to describe clearly why the external link is provided, in case it's not a spam message.

Sigh. So - what is the question that other users could answer here then? (And note that 'Link to test file "EPUB validator"' leads to a site, not to some file - why is it here?)

It seems obvious to me that the Validator (beta) is saying a defined direction is not a valid EPUB file.

Yes, I remove parameter "direction" and uploading finished successfully.
