Is anyone else getting this "Destination unknown" from when clicking on links in emails you subscribed to this blog?

For example, this link gives "Destination unknown" error. When I manually change it to that gets me to the right place on this blog.

BTW, there is also a "reCAPTCHA" problem. I couldn't post here while not logged in. Could only do it after I logged in.

I get similar errors when following links from RSS feed readers like Feedly.

I think all these errors are caused by the fact that I'm using an old version of SquareSpace which is no longer fully supported. But I don't intend to expend the effort which would be required to update it to a current version - so I'm afraid you are going to have to put up with it!

The Captcha by the way is turned off, so you shouldn't still be seeing it. I think you will find you can just click through it without entering anything.

I don't get it unless I try create a post with a URL. Then it gives me a captcha.

That's interesting and would explain why the amount of spam that gets through is very low.

If you just click on it without trying to fill in the Captcha details it should take you through.

Thank you for turning off the Captcha. Now I can post again!

The Captcha's been turned off for well over a year now.

I use Feedly, too. My work-around is to go to the main page, then look on the lower right for Latest Comments. It works unless there are more than 10 I haven't seen.

Has anyone found an RSS feed for the forums?

The link problem is also on the page that lists all of Mark’s systems, menu item TM systems. Too bad, that is a good place to look up any system referred to in the conversations. Seems like Squarespace would continue to support links on the site, regardless of the version.

It is just with the words, full urls at the bottom work.

No prob, Mark. Retyping the "" instead of ".net" isn't too much hassle.

Though I did consider making a Greasemonkey userscript active on "" that automatically change "" to become "", but haven't put that task on my list yet.

Searching for old Andreas Hofmann Userscript did get on my list though. ;-)
