Hi, some simple URLs when entered in the submission form give a message of 'URL invalid or blocked'. How can this be fixed? Thanks.

Would you care providing a couple of those simple URLs so that I test them and narrow down the issue?

It could be many things, starting with some sites block curl or file get content, so the url being simple or not, is irrelevant.
It could also be your HOST environment as well as if AntiSpam is set in your dashboard, etc.

I need more info and a couple of URLs so that I can tell you how it can be fixed.

My antispam is on. The URLs are the following: http://www.abcmouse.com and http://www.ign.com. Thanks.

I tested both URL's and the result:

1- for http://www.abcmouse.com or any other link like https://www.abcmouse.com/math

It fetched the information, see picture

https://www.plikli.com/img/abc-link.png

2- for http://www.ign.com

It fetched the info, but the content was:

"Error 403 - Forbidden
There was something potentially malicious with this URL, and we block suspicious stuff."

see picture

https://www.plikli.com/img/ign-link.png

*************************************

If after you input the URL, you are getting the submit error message (highlighted in faded red) Blocked or invalid, reasons could be:

1- check the dashboard -> Manage -> Manage Domains and check if the URLs are in the Domain Blacklist black list
Another way to check it, open /logs/domain-blacklist.log

2- Your hosting environment

As long as I was able to submit the URLs and information as fetched (did not get the invalid or blocked submit error message), it means that the issue is not from the CMS.

Check the above and let me know with some more details.

Did you find any of the reasons I mentioned in my previous reply?

@rfid4ustore

THE SITE THAT YOU INCLUDED AND CLAIMED THAT YOU HAVE AN ISSUE 'URL invalid or blocked' IS NOT A PLIKLI SITE AND YOUR PURPOSE IS TO DRIVE USERS TO THAT SITE FOR PROMOTIONAL.

I CONSIDER THIS A SPAM AND IF YOU HAVE A PLIKLI CMS AND WOULD LIKE SUPPORT THEN YOU ARE WELCOME. OTHERWISE DO NOT POST ANY SIMILAR TOPICS BECAUSE YOU WILL BE BLOCKED!!!
