More robust link entry?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

There seem to be a lot of broken links in posts.

I just quoted and fixed one that was http://http//blah.blah.blah


I've also seen several where the link actually points to the post that the link is in (no idea how that happens, but it has happened more than once).


I don't have a design fix in mind, but there are enough problems to suggest something could be better.  Maybe a clearer form?  Maybe checking for a live link when the submit button is pressed?  Maybe fixing some obvious format errors?  Dunno.

Well, how old is the POST?  I just saw a resuscitated thread from 2005.  I think you need to give them a link to the post with the problem.
