Hello there.

 

Today I released a mod for Fallout 4, then put up an image to tell people(https://www.nexusmod...4/images/176295). In the image I included a link to the mod, https://www.nexusmod...ut4/mods/44786.

At first the link gave a gibberish link, forgot to capture it, then I redid it and now it points to an image from 2016 titled Into the Dark sea by l00ping, with this weird header - https://www.nexusmod...out4/mods/44786

So I'm guessing somethings not right, probably a you've got a small cough and a bit of a fever..

 

Cheers if you could look into it.

Not sure I'm following.

 

The URL for the link to your mod reads "https ://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/images/176295/%EF%BB%BFhttps://www.nexusmod...out4/mods/44786"  I assume you didn't mean to add the first part. I just copy pasted the URL for your mod into your image description and the link works fine now.

 

Let me know if there is anything else I can help with :)

Thanks it's working now, but https ://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/images/176295/%EF%BB%BF is exactly what I was saying. The link came up as that the second time by itself, even though the link I posted was correct. The first time I posted the link it just came up as gibberish full of %EF%BB%BF type stuff across 3 lines of text.

It happened again in a new image - https://www.nexusmod.../images/177136?

 

Same as before, first the link directs to a string of gobbledy gook. Then, after editing and posting the link again it takes people to image 176295

 

Had to type a link manually

Could you please list the steps you are taking to get into this situation? It's not something I can replicate. I suspect browser addons may be causing the problem.

OK. Not doing anything different, just posting a link like I've done many times for my other mods in the imageshare.

I start by copying the mod link from the browser, in this case https://www.nexusmod...out4/mods/44786

 

Then I do the link [ url=https://www.nexusmod...out4/mods/44786 ] Rocks[ /url ]    , without the spaces between the parenthesis obviously.

 

Annnnd that's it. Every time I do it in a new image, the link goes to a blank page with strings across the top like :><@OIYGJ$%^&*

 

If I edit the image and redo the link, it points to https://www.nexusmod...t4/images/44786

 

There's some sort of cross-link as both mod and image have the same number, i.e. 44786

 

The only difference I've noticed is that way back all the mods on the Nexus had no ? at the end, then they changed and all had a ? at the end, now they're all back to not having one.

 

Hope this helps.
