Can someone help shed some light on what these broken links are? Ive recently changed the layout/design of the site and has lead to some strange things happening. Most I can fix myself but Im stumped as to what these are.

Hi Will

When I visited your site, I clicked on all the links on that page. They all appear to be working.

Can you try clearing your cache and then relogging back in? Does this resolve the problem?

Hi Will - your sites looking great.

Its the same thing as last time, you have picked up some unwanted code from somewhere.

Best thing to do is go to the page where the bad links are (in the site editor).
Click the little html button
Press 'Crtl' and 'F' (together)
Type in the search field - C:\
Delete the first one it finds (looks like what you see above in the image)
Then press 'F3'
Do the same for the next one it finds.

You have other unneccary style code on that page but its not effecting anything.

Lee.

The style code attached looks like something WORD or similar would create.
Must be something to do with the way Wills adding the content.

Thanks once again to the legendry Duke! What a genius! I was just thinking about WORD and shaking my head when I realised that I sometimes use WORD as a spell checker. I type it all into Yola, then cut and paste it to WORD to see if I've made an error, then cut and paste it back into Yola. Would this explain it?

If so, why does it create some kind of a link?

That would explain it - you should maybe copy it to word then copy it to notepad then copy it back to Yola - or a even better solution would be to activate your browsers spell checker. (let me know if you want help doing that) - why it creates a link is beyond me - it must use the memory of the computer and link to that, you notice its C:\ not http: which means its a link to your computers temp folder.

Glad its sorted - Lee.

Hey Will,

Just wanted to come in and say that I think your site looks fantastic.
It's not often I click through every page on a site. You've done a great job.
The "A-class" page stuffs up your menu though. I would change the background on that one. Feautured site material definately, I think!

Thanks Duke once again ... (that's about 5 I owe you now). Actually, make it 6 ... How do I activate my browser spell check? That would save time and the broken link issue.

Also a big thanks to Boomer (Battlestar name?) for the kindly comments. I know what you mean about the background. Problem is, I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I tried this new theme, saw backgrounds and put in something worse than the one I have now. I fiddled for a while and can't seem to get rid of it. how do I get back my normal one?

Hey Will,

In the properties side bar on the right (at the bottom)
Click on "Background Image"



Your file manager will open up.
In the botom right corner of the file manager pop-up click on "select default"
