Why so many broken links on my pages?

Why so many broken links on my pages?

Since the launch of my app, whenever I go through my webpages I find broken links. This morning I found six or so, most of which I've fixed. It seems several of the "Koxinga" links (which should go to this page: http://www.guidegecko.com/taiwan/travel-tips/personalities-in-taiwans-history-before-1800/p,608184577) are now dud.

Any ideas?

Hi Steven,

The links have been corrected, and it should work from now on. Thanks again for spotting this!

As a side-note for future links: I noticed that you specify some links to "Open link in a new window". It is generally better to open all links in the same window, i.e. to keep the "Target" field as "Not Set".

Best,
Daniel

Hi,

Thanks. Yes, there seems to be something wrong. Please keep the links as they are for now, we will be looking at it over the coming days.

By the way, I believe all of these links were originally correct. I was careful when adding links first time around.

Daniel,

Six broken links on this page alone (out of 10), but I see a pattern which may help solving the problem.
Thanks!

Steve

Hi Steven,

Thanks for letting us know. This should not be the case, and we need to investigate it. When you find the next broken link, can you please NOT correct it, but post the URLs here in this format:

1. URL of the page that the broken link is on
2. URL where the link currently goes to
3. URL that the link should go to (and a short note if you think it was correct before)

Thanks,
Daniel
