[RESOLVED] File Not Found Error

Post by paulp575 »

Why is HTML Validator displaying the error message "File Not Found" for the first reference for item 6-81445. It's displaying the error for the first ocurrence of 6-81445. It should not be doing this as this is a comment. I have copied and pasted several lines before and after the line that is giving this error. Line that is giving the error is in bold.

Hello Paul,

I cannot reproduce this with what you have provided.

It sounds like you are referring to a link checker error. In this case, when you double-click an error in the Links tab, it simply searches the document for the link. In this case it may highlight the match in a comment even though that is not the source of the problem. Simply double-click the link again or press F3 to go to the next match until you find the source of the link checker error.

Does this help? If not then please provide more information and a screenshot that shows the error you are asking about.

Thanks!

Found the problem:

I stepped through the error until it showed where the actual error was.
It was much further down in the file where I was using

Code: Select all

<a href="6-81445">
which should have obviously been

Code: Select all

<a href="#6-81445">
(notice the missing pound sign at the beginning of the link?).

Changed that an the error has disappeared.

Sorry for the confusion. I didn't realize further down I was linking back to this item.
