Strings appended to URL creating broken links
« on: October 23, 2009, 06:13:37 PM »
Hi, everything had been working great for the past few months but over the past few days new sitemaps are being generated with URL's that are causing 404 errors. For example, the URL that's generated will either add ://www.bizrate.com or append ://www.instantssl.com to all the URL's that are being indexed on a WordPress blog.

Specific examples are provided below:
Error URL generated:

What it should be:

as well as:
Error URL generated:

What it should be:

I haven't changed any settings in the config or made any changes to the WP blog settings. The site currently has about 11k pages, only links from the WP part of the site seem to be generating this error, everything else is indexed properly.

Any suggestions?

you have missing "http" in some of your links:
<a href="://www.instantssl.com" id="comodoTL">
should be:
<a href="http://www.instantssl.com" id="comodoTL">
