Broken links or empty pages?

Post by Webfoot » June 11th, 2016, 2:46 am

All of the Hike links from http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide/Devil%27s_Elbow lead to a page that reads
There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs, but you do not have permission to create this page.
Are all of these pages really supposed to be blank or did something go wrong?

In the past, some Field Guide editors have gotten over-zealous and created links that go nowhere. I delete these when I find them and I will dispense with these - I agree it's very confusing to users: makes them think that there's an error when, in fact, nothing has existed there at all.

There are probably others like this dotted around the Field Guide although I must have deleted scores of them.

I see. Is it helpful to you to post here if I find more, or should I just leave you to it?

Sure - you can post about any dead links here. I'm not systematically looking for them.

There are a few I've left untouched because I'm planning on creating pages for them soon.

Thanks,

John
