Why is "https:///" flagged as a broken link in QA?

Modified on: Mon, 13 Sep, 2021 at 2:59 PM

When the Quality Assurance (QA) module flags "https:///" or "http:///" as a broken link in QA, it means that your page contains an empty link.

The code for the problem link will look something like these examples:

(a) <href="http://"> , (b) <href="https://"> or (c) <href="">

Locating the broken link in the HTML code can be difficult.

To locate the empty link, we recommend you search for "http://" ,  "https://" or "href=""" in the HTML view of the Page report.

Further information on locating broken links and using the HTML view can be found in the article "How do I fix a broken link?"

Once you find the empty href tags, you can either remove the tag or edit it so that it contains a valid URL.
