  • Hi all,

    I am having problems with my Digging of my wordpress site It seems when a digg link is submitted from my site it returns an error:

    This link does not appear to be a working link. Please check the URL and try again.

    I’ve tried everything, even a non-java script button, and I’ve even entering my page link manually on the digg submit page. No luck. Some how its not seeing the permalink matching with the wordpress post page.

    I would appreciate anyone familar with URLs, permalinks, and wordpress to help?

    my site is and you can try digging any post, it comes back with an error. The problem was it worked before but not since i moved to media temple.

    Please help and thanks in advance.

  • Bump?

    No body can help? Could i have been banned from digg? Which is strange as I hardly submit anything to digg.

    I have exactly the same problem on and my son who is also a blogger on has reported similar trouble.
    Is there anyone out there who has an answer?

    Hi everyone,
    I’m a new entrant here and I have the same problem. Whenever I try to submit a post to digg, I get the message “This link does not appear to be a working link. Please check the URL and try again.”

    Also, my friend’s blog has comment luv plugin enabled. When I leave a comment on the blog, the plugin usually traces my latest post and links to it. But the last couple of posts I posted in my site were not traced by the plugin and it linked to an old post.

    What could be the problem? I don’t have the faintest clue regarding technical stuff so I’d appreciate a detailed explanation. My site is

    Thanks very much in advance for your time.

    Hi guys,
    Could anyone help me out? Please refer to my post above.

    Hi everyone,
    I reported about the same problem yesterday. Could someone please help me sort out the issue? I use WP version 2.1. Please refer to my post above. I thank everyone in advance for your valuable time.

    I’m having the same issue at Would certainly appreciate any help to get this sorted out!

    By the way, I don’t think it’s a matter of being banned – I think there’s something else going on. I also had an issue last week of being banned from the admin area of my own WP and had to make changes in my files in order to get into the admin. Could this be related?




    Some specifics as what you’re doing would be helpful. Saying that you have the same problem doesn’t give folks here much to go on I’m afraid when no one has menetioned what specific method they’re using. Are you using a plugin? Manual? Specific posts that you’re digg’ing?

    Same issue as in: When I manually add a URL to Submit News on Digg, I get a message that says, “This link does not appear to be a working link. Please check the URL and try again.”

    Doesn’t matter what URL I use from my site, be it a page or a post, none of them work on Digg. I’ve had a friend try this on another computer and he’s getting the same message.

    Does that help?

    Here’s a link to a fix but it’s not a very good fix since it means that no one else can digg your stuff.

    Hi guys,
    I have all the social bookmarking icons present right at the end of every post in my blog. When I try to click that Digg button at the end of a post and try to submit it, I get the message “This link does not appear to be a working link. Please check the URL and try again.”

    I hope that was specific. I’d appreciate some help. Thanks.

    Hi guys,
    Alright; I’ll try one more time – this time, I’ll be very specific. I can’t submit to digg – when I click the digg button at the end of the post, or when I try to type the URL manually into digg and try to submit it.

    A comment luv plugin is something which traces the latest post of the commenter and links to it along with the comment. But when I comment in one such blog which has comment luv plugin, it’s not able to trace my post either. It links to an old post.

    Hope that’s clear. Please help me. I’m a newbie to WordPress and I have no idea how to proceed. I thank everyone in advance for your valuable time.

    My URL –

    I think we’ve all been specific enough – I don’t think anyone has an answer for this completely annoying issue!

    Hi everyone,
    I finally found out the reason for this annoying problem. It’s the bad behavior plugin which causes that problem. If you deactivate that plugin, you can submit to digg. I tried it with my blog and I was able to submit a post after I deactivated the bad behavior plugin. But then, it’s not possible to keep that plugin permanently deactivated. Maybe an upgrade would help???

    “seattletravelgal” thanks for the link above on bad-behavior. That hit the nail on the head. Problem solved.
