    2009 National Rally Vendor List Link

    off of the rally website the vendor list link derives this in a notepad (windows) file when clicked using explorer:

    #content{background-color:#000;}
    #sidelinks,#quicklinks {
    background-color:#F3F87C;
    padding:.3em 0;
    }
    etc . . .

    This is the link that I was having problems with:

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally09/rally0...a_rally_vendor

    It is found under the Rally Prize Bikes link off the home page
    http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally09//2009_...he_prize_bikes

    It doesn't open another HTML page but seems to launch a download program of some sort. For me, it is a notepad file but probably because it is the windows default text program.

    What is it supposed to do when it opens correctly??

    Thanks

    You've got something 'effed up with your links. The first one has an extra "rally09" in the link...there should only be one. The second link has a "//" in the URL which doesn't work for an address.

    I went to this page off the top of the home page:

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally09

    did Ctrl-F and searched for Vendor. The second match is a link to the vendor list that works fine.

    There is an issue with the presentation of the vendor page - it should be much wider (and easier to read!). Looking into it...

    As to why the previous links generated bad content, those links, as noted, aren't any of those I've found on the site.

    When I click on the Rally Vendor List ....

    #content{background-color:#000;}
    #sidelinks,#quicklinks {
    background-color:#F3F87C;
    padding:.3em 0;
    }

    #sidelinks p {color:#fff;}
    #newsleft {
    line-height:1.2em;
    margin-bottom: 24px;
    padding-right: 25px;
    }


    snip ...

    From the Rally Prize Bikes link off the MOA home page

    2009 Rally: The Prize Bikes

    Under that linked story are additional links below "More 2009 Rally Info:"

    This is the link that I was having problems with:

    I'm just copying the html addresses from the properties of the links. What is "'effed up" is being copied from there and is the defect that I am communicating for correction.

    Consider that the defect you see in the links that I posted are what is on the the MOA site at a different location then you are reviewing.

    I wasn't suggesting that you were hand typing those URLs, but it does appear that the MOA website has some errors... The structure of the first link you suggest is definitely wrong, although it does download a page for some reason. However, the second link, which you indicate provides garbage when clicked, seems to work fine...I can't seem to find the one that has the extra "rally09" in the URL.

    There are several people that post content in this new site. One link below "more info" was entered incorrectly. These things happen. Sorry about the difficulty.

    In the future, an email to webmaster@ or other appropriate email (see contact page) is a much preferred way to communicate with those that post content and maintain the site.

    Scott,

    Seems to be working fine this morning! Maybe my computer got into some "fixings" for the Fourth of July!
