    Hi,

    I use the latest version of the plugin.

    Step 2: Submit your linktrade

    Errors:

    website_url is not a valid url
    Website reciprocal is not a valid url

    Both url's are valid! I don't get this error on all links.
    Certain links work.

    Hi leosch,

    i have the same problem. I guess this is an PHP-Bug in this function:
    filter_var($url, FILTER_VALIDATE_URL)

    On my local instalation (OS X 10.7.5, and MAMP 2.1.3) all works fine, but on the live Server the same error occurs. For a quick fix you can add the pages directly in database.

    Regards,

    Oliver

    I have double-checked the Error. It's a PHP Bug. A URL is invalid when it´s a - (dash). This bug is fixed in PHP 5.3.3

    Regards,

    Oliver

    Hi Oliver,

    Is there a way to fix this that it runs with a lower php version?

    Regards,

    Hi,
    I think it is not only dependent on PHP version.
    There are some problems with FILTER_VALIDATE_URL using non-ascii characters...see
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2137080/php-filter-var-filter-validate-url and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18307392/php-filter-validate-url-giving-unexpected-result so some extra code is necessary I think?

    Greetings, Martijn
