[Video] My Embarrassing Mistake

Hello guys,

Something has been annoying me for a few months now, ever since Aweber updated their website.

I was struggling with what would seem a very simple exercise – Adding a link into my emails!

That is the main reason why I do email marketing, so people will click on my links, so it is pretty damn ebarrassing to have to admit! Ha ha

however, I have finally found out where I have been going wrong, and I have recorded a short video for you showing how you can avoid the same issue.

Here is the video.

  1. I know what you mean Brian. Took me some time to get use to the new layout. Seems they are always changing things. Though the changes seem for the better, so guess it’s worth it 🙂

  2. Hi Brian. Your url not validating when you could see the end of it pasted in the box, is what was happening to me. I scrolled along to the far left of the url, until the very beginning of it, from http//: was showing, and then it would validate.

  3. Hi Brian,

    Just dropping by to say hello.

    I have always used Aweber’s plain text email composer and just put the URL in as normal. I noticed that HTML has more or less taken over now and I’m still a bit reluctant to add too much HTML in case people can’t actually view my email with their provider.

    How are you getting on with the IM business? Are you still enjoying it?

  4. I had the same issue but instead of pressing space which I think will technically put a space in the link(dosn’t matter if its working)I press the right arrow key on my keyboard.

  5. Hiya,

    I have seen this on a lot of websites. If you want the technical reason it’s due to the JavaScript library waiting for a keypress in the text box. Some of them do note recognise a paste when using the right-click->paste menu option. Most will recognise a Ctrl+V (or Cmd+V for Mac) though.

    Try to avoid using a space as you may end up with an invalid URL – tapping right or left cursor key should do the trick instead.

    1. Wow thanks Steven, I have come to realise that pressing space was not the best option, and I am now taking your sound advice and tapping the right cursor key.
      Cheers for taking the time to comment.
      Brian
