    Guys,

    It's different, it's actually a bug in Hubpages code. It passes url like :

    http://hubpages.com%25252Fhub%25252FWWIII
    instead of
    http://hubpages.com/hub/WWIII

    , and digg just can't understand it...

      Even if you write it in the form: http://hubpages.com/hub/WWIII

      you would get the same message.

      Can any hubpage official help? How about you, Mr. Paul?

    Although we can probably work around it, I believe the bug is actually in Digg's implementation.  For those that are interested,this is the link that we send you off to (which has the forward slashes properly encoded):

    submit?phase=2&url=http://hubpages.com%2Fhub%2FWWIII

    Digg's web server then does a 301 redirect to this URL:

    submit?phase=2&url=http://hubpages.com%252Fhub%252FWWIII

    It appears they are encoding the % symbol (which encoded is %25) with that redirect, but the percent symbol should just be left alone as it is actually part of the "%2F" token which is an encoded forward slash.

      Thanks for the reply but the problem is still there even if i write the URL correctly. Can't you contact the people at Digg and get this problem solved.

      Thanks

    Hi Greathub,Everyone,smile

        Yeah, it's probably a bug. I had the same problem yesterday. I tried to go around it by clicking the tab "Submit New" at the top. Then it let me enter the URL. I entered my URL and it went though.

    I hope this will help you all in some way.
