Just listed a Mark Tunis 'The Black Shadow' Power Cord as an AUCTION item

URL was not accepted and I could not pay until I removed it.

Same URL that I have listed in other ads...works fine there.

Would like to see the link taken from the description section and put where it belongs.

Thanks

We decided to try a few auctions and went through the samething as you. Finally gave up and just removed the URL. Not ideal, but it is what it is.

We can try to take a look at this, but the URL you post in the forum is actually a broken link, could you post the actual URL you intended to us?

The link "works" in that you get to a page, but the page only says this:

"Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist."

and issues a 404 header , which means that the URL is invalid.

Here is what I see:

Ah, couldn't even see that...it's too dark! :oops:

I matched the URL that pops up in the tool tip when I hover the mouse over the link, to the one in the address bar when the link opens. A dead link usually doesn't match up so tidily...and there are other links therein.

Still doesn't make sense as it's unclear to me what the OP was pointing to....

Sorry about this, I thought I had replied earlier, but I did some more testing and found that we had a bug with URL validation so we fixed that.

So while the URL in the first post is still invalid, other valid URLs were also being rejected, but that should be fixed now.

Seems that the link provided in my Mark Tunis 'The Black Shadow' Power Cord is now working...thanks.
