Whenever I try to digg my hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/WWIII
I get this message:
"Please choose a valid type for your URL."
Can anybody help?
You can see what happened here http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/3219
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):
Digg's web server then does a 301 redirect to this URL:
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.
Could be their fault for sure You know, I'm not a big fan of bashing you, guys
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.

The past few times I have tried posting articles to Digg.com, I have run across two problems: 1. There are extra characters in the link from HubPages, and Digg says the link does not work and 2. When I fix the link, it takes forever to recognize it and often does not ever post the link. Is it...
