Browsing through my site to determine it's effectiveness (test it) I clicked on a link and it pulled up an HTTP 500 error message (same thing as the 404 not found error message)... verified the link was accurate by reading the address bar letter for letter so I hit the back button and clicked the same link again to retest (changed nothing in the sitebuilder) and the link worked... what could have been the cause of this?

Hi Donald,

An http 500 error is an internal server error. It just means that there was a little hiccup as the server tried to access the page, but as you saw it quickly remedied itself.

Hope this helps!
