Brokenlinkchecker.com raises a few issues

Hello;
I ran brokenlinkchecker.com on my web site and it has raised a few issues. One sample is:-

https:........co.uk/fluxbb/viewforum.php/viewforum.php/viewtopic.php?id=44

As you can see viewforum.php is mentioned twice and causes an invalid link error.

Is there anything that can be done to stop the duplication of string "/viewforum.php"?
Many thanks

Re: Brokenlinkchecker.com raises a few issues

I would assume this means that some page on your site links to this invalid URL (probably a copy-paste mistake). Does brokenlinkchecker tell you where it found this URL?

Re: Brokenlinkchecker.com raises a few issues

Hi;
is there any way that I could attach a word document that contains the errors and hyperlinks created by brokenlinkcheck.com or an email to send it to you if that is not possible?

I think that would be easier than pasting the errors with overlaps that I think would make it difficult to work with?

Re: Brokenlinkchecker.com raises a few issues

Hi;
Use this link:- https://www.nineoaks-fisheries.co.uk/index.shtml
and towards the bottom of the page, I have placed a paragraph beginning
FluxBB Broken links from www.brokenlinkcheck.com.docx

Click on the link to download the document as a word .docx
This contains the errors and urls
Later today I shall remove the paragraph.

Re: Brokenlinkchecker.com raises a few issues

I was away for a few days. smile

The relevant information is in the "Page where found" column. For example, this URL contains a broken link:

https://www.nineoaks-fisheries.co.uk/fluxbb/viewforum.php/viewforum.php/viewforum.php?id=22

To me, it looks like there is a server misconfiguration. This URL should not load a page in the first place (there should only be one "viewforum.php"). Once this page (and others like it) don't exist anymore (i.e. return HTTP 404), there should be no more broken links.
