    Hi, dear Reader,

    on my blog I cannot click on two pages because it comes up automatically this strange suffice: %E2%80%8E/

    http://financial-freedom.theconversationcircle.com/about-your-financial-freedom%E2%80%8E/

    This is an example for one page. When I click the link inside of the post I get the page without problems...

    I have listed in this category 4 pages; the 1rst and 2nd do not work, there is no problem with the 3rd and 4th.

    I am unable to fix this. Is there anyone here who could help me out with this?!

    Thanks in advance.

    edit the post/page in the dashboard
    right above edit screen you can edit the permalink
    for example, the one above should be
    about-your-financial-freedom

    I'm getting this issue and it's not caused by the permalink.

    My page page contains the following link:
    <a href="http://imedicinereview.com/online-qa1500-by-mail‎">.

    When you click the link, you get "page not found" although the URL in the address bar appears correctly as:
    http://imedicinereview.com/online-qa1500-by-mail.

    However, when you cut and paste the URL from the address bar into Notepad,
    you see this:
    http://imedicinereview.com/online-qa1500-by-mail%E2%80%8E.

    I can't seem to fix this. Never saw it before. Has anybody else seen it and diagnosed the cause?

    Never mind. The invisible character was lodged in the very link I posted above (although I think it was stripped out when I posted).

    I edited out the character in WP-- it was detectable by using arrow keys to go over it (the cursor paused at the invisible character)-- and everything is hunky-dory.

    Now I want my 20 minutes back.

    ;-)

    Hi kstadden,

    I'm wondering if you can help me - I have exactly the same issue as you, but I cannot find any invisible characters in my URL:

    <form action="http://www.adamsherman.com.au/postureperfection/thankyou" method="post">

    I have changed the permalink and everything. Any advice?

    Thans!

    MeltingDog,

    In what you posted there are no hidden characters that I can detect. Try copying and pasting from your post above. If your issue is being caused by something else, I'm stumped. Good luck, and post here when you find a fix.

    OK all - I have fixed the similar issue I had.

    It was one of the fields in my form - the one called 'name'. This was processed as $name which might be a reserved php variable. I changed this to $customer and it works. Other then that I cannot explain why that would make any difference...
