Broken links in NfB post Can't Post

Hello!

The links in this NfB thread do not work (for me anyway?):

http://newboards.theonering.net/...;;page=unread#unread

I get the following message:

The links in the article on the homepage work, however [In reply to] Can't Post

http://www.theonering.net/...ow-available-online/

I could be wrong, but is it because of the newsboards in the NfB link on the boards?

Seems to work now [In reply to] Can't Post

That was strange, both links were missing the first part of the url! Thanks for the heads-up, DanielLB! Smile

Are you talking about the links [In reply to] Can't Post

or the video at the bottom? I'm checking in on my phone and can't get to all the links. If I know what you're referencing I can try to fix it, thanks!

what I see... [In reply to] Can't Post

is a code involving a youtube video but that code is not working:

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTmZ2krYieM&w=500&h=281]


I don't know how the code for embedding a youtube video should read. But if that is supposed to be a code to display the video or to link to the video, (and square brackets indicate someone is trying to write code) then it's not working. It doesn't display the video nor provide a clickable link.

I don't know if markup (square bracket code) can be used to display a video. Youtube provides html code for dispaying videos. So perhaps NewsFromBree wanted to link to it. But most NewsFromBree posts display videos.. not link to them.

All the clickable links work for me.

and... having to edit this post 5 times for bonehead typos... I will now go have shower, breakfast and coffee. One should post drunk and one shouldn't post before coffee in the morning! (and I just had to edit that postscript note!)

Got it - finally! [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw the same situation with other posts, so hopefully I caught them all. Magpie is correct - the [ ] brackets surrounded the link so it didn't work. I was able to take out the brackets and it's all good.

The WETA booth at SDCC was amazing. I was lucky enough to get a decent picture of the trolls before everyone arrived, and some close-ups from the back. They are stunning.

I think my favorite shot of the stone trolls is this one: [In reply to] Can't Post

http://www.flickr.com/...77338/in/photostream

They do seem to be waving good bye to everyone.

But the shot in front of the trolls of Richard Taylor with all the Slave Leias was fun.

Those Slave Leias [In reply to] Can't Post
