    I'm trying to add http://wdgtd.jcink.net to the directory and it's giving me this error, although the button is clearly there:

    A reciprocal link back to RPGfix was not found on your site. You must add a link to https://www.rpgfix.com before you submit your site.

    Your JCINK template was coded poorly and it's causing the RPGfix bot to have a fatal error while looking for a link.

    Things like this exist in your template:
    HTML:
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?"><i class="fa fa-home"></i></div>
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?showtopic=15"><i class="fa fa-book"></i></div>
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?showtopic=16"><i class="fa fa-list"></i></div>
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?showtopic=18"><i class="fa fa-group"></i></div>
    when they should be like this, with closing </a> tags:
    HTML:
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?"><i class="fa fa-home"></i></a></div>
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?showtopic=15"><i class="fa fa-book"></i></a></div>
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?showtopic=16"><i class="fa fa-list"></i></a></div>
    <div class="btn"><a href="/index.php?showtopic=18"><i class="fa fa-group"></i></a></div>
    The link that I gave you will show you where all of the errors are, but it really should only be necessary to fix the <a href=""></a> portions as that is what the RPGfix bot is looking at.

    Weird, because this is what I'm seeing when looking at the affiliates section:

    Code:
     <a href="http://rpg-directory.com/index.php" target="_blank"><img src="https://i.imgsafe.org/dcfd2e5f9b.jpg" title="RPG-Directory" alt="RPG-D" width="88px" height="31px"></a>
      <a href="http://distant-fantasies.net" target="_blank"><img src="http://images.distant-fantasies.net/buttons/logo88/dfloveaff.png" title="Distant Fantasies - Directory for all Roleplayers" alt="Distant Fantasies" /></a>
      <a href="https://rpginitiative.com" target="_blank"><img src="https://images.rpginitiative.com/buttons/logo88/mainbutton.png" title="RPG Initiative - Community for all Roleplayers" alt="RPG Initiative" /></a>
    
    <a href="https://www.rpgfix.com/" title="RPGfix"><img src="https://i.imgur.com/AqFIDfo.gif" alt="RPGfix"/></a>

    The bot cannot make it down to the affiliates section because it's choking on the earlier malformed links. It tries to look at all the links, but can't digest them all when a bunch are broken.

    That's the thing. I'm not seeing any bad links when looking at the affs. They all look just fine.

    The bot looks at *all* of the links to try and find the link for RPGfix. It starts from the top of the site. It cannot get down to the affiliate section because the links at the top are malformed and causing a fatal error. If you fix the malformed links in your template, the bot will then be able to make it down to the affiliate section.

    Looks like we got it fixed, since it accepted me linking to the directory.
