SSL External Link Validation

Monday, Apr. 17, 2006
Commonspot's internal process for validating external links to secure (SSL-enabled, beginning with https://) Web sites has changed.  Rather than categorizing the link as invalid, Commonpot will validate the link syntax but skip the process that actually checks to see if the link can be reached. If you've checked to make sure that you've entered the link correctly, you can check the link in Commonspot's link validation form, telling Commonspot that the link is in fact valid.
