CathInfo ... broken links

  • Hi, Matthew,

    Is there anything you can do to fix the broken links that have resulted from your character substitution algorithm?  I'm not sure if you can programmatically access both the actual URL and the description text ... and perhaps leave the link alone while updating the description.

  • These broken links should not happen to me because I have a recondition new computer and keyboard.  This is an attack
    of big tech. I do not know how they are doing it because I an no computer genius.  Something built in the system to
    attack certain political viewpoints.
    What I do is copy and past the article just like I did about ƚwιƚƚeɾ not censoring violent accounts on the left and censor
    Tɾυmρ on a speech in which their was no advocacy for violence.
    The left believes if they lie over and over again they believe they will win the information war because people hear and
    read it over and over again where they are convinced the lie is the truth.

    The links aren't working because of what Ladislaus said:  the character sub algorithm.
    What I've been doing is I copy the link, and then manually re-type a word with its normal characters, such as "twitter".   So far that seems to work.

    No? A forum you belong to substituting certain characters and causing the link to break is not an attack by "big tech". Your own forum is not attacking itself, don't worry.

    Thank you so much for this link Bonaventure.
    I tried to post a video on CI but due to the problems raised by Ladislaus they do not connect.  
    I tried again with the 'tiny url' and it worked fine.

  • Apologies for the inconvenience. 

    I will try to program in a workaround; still trying to find time to do this.

    Thank you for your patience.
