    I am getting some weird stuff happening with the scrapbox built in link checker today.

    It is showing a whole bunch of urls & anchor text as found that don't even exist in my list of websites with urls to check? Some of the links found are correct (ie. they match my list to check against), but a whole bunch of others are also showing as found, and they don't exist on my checklist at all!

    I have tried closing the instance and restarting it. Tried with proxies on / off - same results each time.

    Is anyone else experiencing this today?

    Your not crazy. The exact same thing happened to me the other day - it actually pulled links and urls for the actual sites I commented on.

    I was getting this again the other day, so wrote to SB support about it. If you are going straight to the link checker, then you should ensure that your websites list only has urls in. My problem above came about as my websites list also had titles (as the list was used for trackbacks as well). Once I removed the titles, and tested, the link checker worked fine.

    So it was a user error, not a SB error :)
