Function Require.php - What is this?

I'm getting this when I search for broken links on my page

http://www.a-class-driving.com/functi...
error code: 404 (not found), linked from page(s):
http://www.a-class-driving.com/advanc...
http://www.a-class-driving.com/practi...

http://www.a-class-driving.com/traffi...
http://www.a-class-driving.com/warmel...

This is not one of my URLs. Im trying to get rid of broken links on my site and waned to ask if there was a way of finding out where this URL is, or how to get rid of it.

Any ideas?

Will, this is my favorite tool Ed has ever done the honour of leaving for us all :)

I use it on my site - its amazing - you need to download it, its not an online tool but its very safe and has been tested for safety by myself and others.

Heres the must have thread of 2009 http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/do_...

Hey Duke, thanks for the info. It's by using Xenu that this issue has cropped up. It's saying I have broken links on pages that mean nothing to me. I've never heard of these URLs where the dead links are .... Any ideas?

sorry will i miss read that, the pages you have listed above are not actual pages they have the .rss extension - which they should not have - they work with the dot php extension.

I dont know why thi sis happening - i would guess its finding those pages on some kind of site map.

Hi Will,
This might very well have to do with the blog bug we are currently working on. When I see an engineer I am going to run this past him. So sorry for this inconvenience, we are keen to get this worked out quickly.

Hello Will,
I'm happy to report that I was able to find and engineer and he knew what the problem was. This is what he tells me: "The problem was due to the fact that these are blog pages, but because the blogging widgets have all been removed, the page was not initializing properly and the RSS feed broke."

He has fixed the problem and the RSS feed will not return these broken links any longer.

This is a brand new page after deleating my last 3 blog pages. Looks like something to do with tags. Any ideas about this one? If I keep blogging Im going to pick up lots of broken links again.

Hi Will

Emmy is offline right now. I will need to get an engineer to take look at this. Unfortunately, right now, our engineers are also off for the night. Hopefully by Monday, we will be able to get back to you with more information. Sorry for the wait and thanks for your patience as we try to work this out.

Hello Will

I wanted to let you know that we're looking into this now. We've been experiencing a few bugs with our blog since we've made some back-end changes. Thanks for your continued patience as we try to get this sorted out.
