Broken Links in the Site Link Directory

(split from another thread)

Hi.

Can you please post a copy of the exact link you used?

I have no trouble accessing either the readme, or the link to "Featured Books and Articles by Active Forum Members - Links"

Thanks.

Sure, ... OH, If I paste it it gets pasted like this: (I removed opening and closing brackets)
Code:
URL="https://www.unix.com/featured-books-and-articles-by-active-forum-members-33/"]https://www.unix.com/featured-books-and-articles-by-active-forum-members-33/[/URL

here is the 'live' version - does it work for you?
https://www.unix.com/featured-books-a...um-members-33/

this link is on this page: The UNIX and Linux Forums Directory

in fact - every link on that page brings up the vBulletin page. The links read correct in the status bar on hover or the address bar when pasted. Is this just happening to me?

... actually - they just omit the /links/ in the address - filling it in by hand brings up the page. no big deal - sorry. So where does links2 get the correct address from ...
... in safari the status line gives all links without the links directory /links/ in links2 the status line reads all links with /links/

Here is a better version - short and sweet Smilie

The links directory seems to be working incorrectly?

For example the URL for UNIX OS Links is https://www.unix.com/unix-os-links-2/ and not UNIX OS Links - Links

Update: I hacked together a fix for this... seems there was corrupted categories in the links directory.

Thanks for informing....
