Why is the first link not coming through in vb?

Hmmm...but the CNN link works... interesting


Ahhh... maybe the lack of 'www' in the url... that must be it.

Anyone?

Godwin's Law without apostrophe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwins_Law)


Got it! The apostrophe in the URL is an illegal character and breaks up the string so the vB code fails to recognize it as a legitimate URL.

Ah...ok. Got it. That was driving me nuts. So vb doesn't like apostrophes in urls. Interesting.

I didn't even notice that at first- I presumed it was the lack of 'www'- but I could have sworn that I'd seen 'tiny urls' in line before.

And so I did.

Ridiculous! Added to vb3 modification to-do list.
