I have a warning about one of the links in one of my articles. It says the link should be edited or it will be deleted after 30 days.

Link is working just fine. What should I do to prevent deleting it?

Thanks!

I'm having the problem with my hyperlinks in text too.

Looks like there's a gremlin in the works...hopefully Simon or Chef will flush it out for us.

This one comes up every month or so, see link below. It's a bug.

I can't even add new links to my articles when I'm editing them at the moment. Text links to Amazon Associates are borked, and so, it seems, are even links to some home pages of websites. I know of one website which will not link in Wizzley modules no matter what (fiverr.com). I've tried it until I'm blue in the face but I think it's either a fiverr thing or a Wizzley thing to stop promotion of other money earning sites here.

But why should text links to Amazon Associates be blocked? Odd...

Hold on guys :-) I think I'm on to something, finally. I think the link checker will be up and running - at least much more reliably - in about an hour ...

Phew, finally - I think we did it: the link checker appears to be working much better now. For the first time ever, all of our collected "problematic test URLs" pass as valid. If you notice a URL that fails, please let us know ... just post the URL here.

Cheers, Simon

Let me get through tomorrow first, Simon, and I'll be onto this. After the week I am having I need a writing and eBay break this weekend, hopefully updating my Wizzography can form part of that.

Hi Simon,

I tried adding this Amazon item (Jamie's 30-Minute Meals) and it didn't work:

  • ISBN-10: 0718154770
  • ISBN-13: 978-0718154776

Hi Mira,

please post the URL that is not working. I can link to this product without getting an error: Example
