BugMassive CP link problem Pin
Luc Pattyn6-Sep-20 2:26
sitebuilderLuc Pattyn6-Sep-20 2:26 
A great number of hyperlinks on CP is defective:

1. The (first page of) active questions in Q&A Quick Answers[^] shows 20 questions, 5 of their links do not work, they yield a page with "Sorry, the item you requested could not be found."
e.g. https://www.codeproject.com/Questions/844561/how-to-solve-error-like-Server-Error-in-Applicatio
or how to solve error like "Server Error in '/' Application. Maximum request length exceeded" Error while runinng a asp,net upload file program?[^]

2. A number of article links (which I copy and store frequently for future reference) are no longer OK.
Two days ago I revisited http://www.codeproject.com/KB/IP/CSHTTPServer.aspx which I knew to be an old-style link; to my surprise it got redirected automatically to https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/17071/Sample-HTTP-Server-Skeleton-in-C. I saved that link, it worked. Yesterday and today it no longer works, it yields a page with "Do not try and find the page. That’s impossible. Instead only try to realise the truth."

3. On my list-of-articles page (https://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/MemberArticles.aspx?amid=648011 editor fails to automatically insert clickable links!) all links to my articles work except one:
Timer surprises, and how to avoid them

Timer surprises, and how to avoid them[^] too gives the "Do not try ..." message.


Furthermore, when I search for articles with Embedded HTTP Server in their title, I find some, one of them is shown as
Embedded .<wbr>NET HTTP Server
.
I don't know why that wbr is showing (it does not exist in the article!).

My suspicion is something has changed in the handling of HTML tags resulting in a change of the SEO-part of a lot of links, causing them to now fail.

I obviously don't mind the SEO efforts, however I would like to get an alternative URL, so we can access articles (and any other item that has a visible number) by that number without being affected by the SEO stuff; that way we can insert references in code comments that have a high probability to work even many years in the future...

ADDED 17:09 the failing links stopped failing consistently, some of them now work every so often.

Hmmm | :|

PS: years ago I suggested to display the server name (Web01,...) at the top of every page, but that idea wasn't accepted. If it had been, all the above would have been qualified with server information...
