New version problems

SandiB I have the new version, using rebrander, that's fine BUT certain links on the site, which are copy-pasted from other links that work fine, glitch and don't display as they should.  Yes, I've cleared caches and even tried manually entering the links.  I even called my site host and had them check my server.  

One of my links (the most important one, naturally) goes to my hosts home page instead of my site home page.  It did work correctly but then it just changed.  Even removing and reinserting doesn't help.  I've tried absolute and relative linking.  

I have one other link that works sometimes and not other times.  It goes to an off-site destination...ie, an absolute link.  

I don't have any problems with links other than in the ebook I'm doing now.  I've re-created it 4 times and it's still unstable.

Anyone have any idea what's going on?  Will try anything you think might work.  Thanks!

P.S. to Sunil: I re-did my file folder situation and that took care of the problem we discussed earlier.  Appreciate your help on that.

EBookCompiler Post the HTML code for that page,  or at least the relevant part of it, as without that we're all just guessing

Open the file in Notepad or another text editor, highlight the text, and say Copy.  Then in your Post here do Paste (Ctrl+V)

SandiB Here's the segment that is going to your-site home page instead of etidepublishing.com page.  I'll post the other problem segment next.  Thanks!

SandiB This is the segment, from the index page, that sometimes works right (ie: when clicked on to verify) goes to the verification page and other times either doesn't work or goes to the wrong page.  Thanks for the help!

<td width="30%"><div align="left"><a href="http://i-Cop.org/cgi-bin/mem/jl.pl?1208"target="new"><img src="/charter_seal.gif" border="0" alt="i-Cop Logo and Link"></a><br>Click to verify.</div>

EBookCompiler On the 2nd one I think you have an extra / plus (in the bit before charter_seal.gif, and are missing a space before target


<td width="30%"><div align="left"><a href="http://i-Cop.org/cgi-bin/mem/jl.pl?1208" target="new"><img src="charter_seal.gif" border="0" alt="i-Cop Logo and Link"></a><br>Click to verify.</div>

The extra / would cause  a broken image.  I'm not sure what the missing space would do

I am guessing but I think the problem is caused by something else in your file, like possibly a missing "  or a missing end tag or a missing closing tag.

Consider for example code like this

<A HREF="http://www.yahooc.om/"><A HREF="http://www.hotmail.com/">Link</A>

Does this link to Yahoo or Hotmail ?

I'd suggest you try running your code through an HTML validator.  There a bunch, mostly free at


Now on a typical HTML page it will give you lots of warnings for say missing quotes (most people and HTML programs are lazy about that).   What you want to do is look for warnings/errors about mismatched brackets, quotes, tags, etc.

If still no luck, post the whole page here

SandiB Thanks for the help.  Sometimes one can't see for looking, I guess.  There was an extra period  that caused the first problem.  The second one cleared up with the removal of the extra /.
