On this page of Gardening Articles about Orchids: https://garden.org/learn/artic... I get error messages when clicking on the links for the first three on the list:

The Basics of Orchid Culture - HID Lights and Humidity
The Basics of Orchid Culture - Artificial Lights
The Basics of Orchid Culture

Message reads: Not Found The requested URL /learn/articles/view/4468/ was not found on this server.

The others in the series all work fine.

I don't know if the problem I'm having is related to Lin's.
I received 2 emails with what I assume are broken links. Both were sent from:
National Gardening Association <pigeon@garden.org>

The 1st was at 7:54 a.m.

'You previously posted a question to the gardeners at the National
Gardening Association, and porkpal just posted a reply. To read it,
click here:

The 2nd came in at 8:04 a.m. It was essentially the same except it said it that Jai_Ganesha just posted a reply and this is where the reply was sending me:

I didn't follow the original links in my email. I waited until later when I actually logged on to NGA. When I did logon, I had the typical system message telling me that I had system messages.
Both looked like this:

You have a reply to your question!
You have a response to a question you asked! Check out the response at'

and then neither had a place for me to check out the response.

I only had 2 unanswered questions. The 1st was waiting for me to provide more info so I assumed the answers were regarding a question that I asked late last night. I didn't look that hard, but couldn't find any record of the 2nd (newer) question.

So that's my story and as I said, I don't know if there's any connection to Lin's broken links. Let me know if you need more information. Thanks.

LOL, something is definitely amiss ... now when I click the house icon to get back to my home page, it takes me to tx_flower_child's page.

The only way I can get back here is to go to Community and click on the Site Talk Forum ... otherwise, when I click on the NGA logo, it takes me here: https://garden.org/

eek! That was me (plantladylin/Lin) posting above, not tx_flower_child. I logged out and logged back in and got my home page to come back to this thread. Now lets see where it takes me after I hit send. Green Grin!

Not sure what happened a few minutes ago with the system taking me to tx_flower_child's page but I seem to be getting back to the home page okay now. The links in the articles still give the error messages though.

Ok, Lin. That's pretty weird. Did you find anything interesting when you were me?

Ok well, wow.

I edited your post to remove the links. Those were special links emailed directly to you that log you in at garden.org under your account. You really shouldn't share those with others.

As for Lin's original report - I fixed that problem. Thank You!

I don't understand. I did get an email from Danita to edit out the links. Which links? How?

And I don't share any links with others.
