    So... I've been trying to get some of my old articles from a defunct site using wayback machine.

    I'll admit I was getting some success, up until two weeks ago when the archive sort of stopped working.

    The url archives get displayed when you type in the search query, but they aren't clickable.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    I haven't noticed any problems. Sometimes when you go to an archived site and click on a link on the page, it tells you that the page isn't archived. So not all pages on an archived site are necessarily included in a "snapshot".

    I've been trying to get some old posts for the better part of a week without success. I tried a few other websites with the same result.

    Dunno if its because I'm doing so via my phone. I'll use a system and see how it goes.

    Thanks for the response.

      Has the url been changed? On Hubpages if your article was moved to the new sites it would have had the url changed in doing so. If there is any chance that your url may have changed over time think back to what your old url would have been.

    Its actually the URL of a personal site I owned and yes, the URL has changed.

    I let the old one expire without backing up the posts on it and getting these back has been difficult.

    I've been doing the same thing and notice that the links on some dates are clickable and some are not.  The less popular the site, the less chance there is that it was archived.

    You may have to go further back in time to find a point where it was archived.

      Yes, this is my issue too. The dates of the posts are showed but they aren't clickable so I can't access them.

            I've read it three times - it's still not haiku.
