Two of my articles about the Kentucky Bourbon Trail report an invalid link: http://kybourbontrail.com/.  This link is fine. What's the problem on Wizzley's end?  Also tried to input http://www.hankjr.com/ for my most recent article and the message said it was invalid but I can open on my end. Any suggestions?

Hi!

There's a problem with the links that I don't entirely understand, something about the code. When I get an alert that says my links are bad, I just check them out and if they're okay I mark them as corrected.

One way I have been able to get around adding links in new articles is changing the http to https.

Hope this helps.

Thanks AbbyF, I corrected two links in existing articles (did that before but flagging reoccurred over time) but system would not allow me to input a new valid link in recent story. Hope this gets fixed since the linked sites are pertinent to my stories. Judith

The technical geniuses that deal with this kind of thing are working on it. At this stage they are slaughtering a goat and studying its entrails for inspiration.

Hi Rupert, "Patience is a virtue," my mother always said. So I'll wait for this glitch to right itself. Thanks for your input. Judith

I'm also getting a message 'The following URLs do not appear to be valid'. when I'm trying to link to a site in an article I'm drafting.

That's a real pain when the entire article is about the site I'm trying to link to.

Finally solved - the link checker appears to be working correctly now :-)
