Internal link changes when reading in "category" view, resulting in "not found"
For clarification, all of the links I suppliedt above are fine – my issue is that the url attached to <i>the introduction</i> in the italicized opening paragraph of the described posts changes if reading the posts from their category page (vs. reading from home page or as individual post).
Actually, the link is quite broken in all views. I suspect you may just have a good link still in your browser’s cache.
I recommend changing the link to what it should be.
Also, props on switching to DuckDuckGo. It’s a great little search engine.
Thanks – I never thought to look at the actual link in the editor. I fixed it and it now works fine. At least on the one example – now I have to go check each article in the series (and maybe any other internal links in any post?). Of course that doesn’t explain the difference from one view to another of the same post, but no matter I suppose.
I’m not sure how that could have happened, but I have two guesses. Either it is a result of my copy-and-pasting that italicized paragraph in from another post each time, else it is some strangeness that occured when I recently changed from homelessonwheels.wordpress.com to homelessonwheels.com (still hosted on wordpress.com).
Thanks again – I’ll come back and mark this resolved once I’ve edited all the affected posts and make sure all works as it should.
Perfect, I’m glad that worked!
Typically, I advise against copying and pasting, since it does some weird things from time to time. If you do have to give that, give everything a thorough check before publishing.
All fixed! Thanks again. While I was at it I updated some other links that weren’t really broken, but just to be consistent with my domain upgrade.
I guess the real lesson I learned today is to always pick from the list in the editor’s link tool when linking to other of my own blog posts.
