Query about some links.

Post by Leodian »

There is a section at the bottom of the Home Page that states:-

SecretLeeds is managed by Tyrell
e. [email protected]
w. tyrell.mobi / tyrell.digital
To find out more see here.

The 'e.' presumably stands for email, but when I click on that link I get this message "Could not perform this operation because the default email client is not properly installed". My email is AOL, so does this mean that if I ever did need to use that [email protected] email address link that I would need to install another email company? The 'w.' presumably means website, as those two links bring up websites. The "see here" link however brings up (at least on my system) a "The page cannot be found" message. Sorry admin if I'm being a bother but I thought I would mention my comments.

If you use AOL as a web based email programme then it cannot be your default email client. You would therefore need to copy and paste the email address [email protected] into your AOL web based email.

You need something like or similar to Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express to have a default email client.
Is this the end of the story ...or the beginning of a legend?

Buffalo Skinner is correct in that a web based email won't automatically open a message with the email address prepopulated and you will need an email application. Unless you have moved to Windows10 which did offer me the option of using microsofts webmail as well as detecting I have an email client that wasn't open (so that was offered as an options too)

As for the broken link. Congratulations I suspect you have discovered a configuration error Duncan made when moving the site to the new software. He presumably hard coded secretleeds.com/about-us.php into that link but the site automatically adds the site domain anyway so we get a repeat secretleeds.com/secretleeds.com/about-us.phpas the link when really it should be http://secretleeds.com/about-us.php which can also be reached clicking the About between Home and Useful Link on the top menu bar.
