*Do I need to put my free space page in a category and if I do I'm not sure where it belongs.

Thanks to my mom we have quite a number of famous people in our tree so I decided to make a free space page to list who it is and who our common ancestor is and my path and their path to and from the common ancestor... right now I just entered 31 out of 44 US presidents are related to.

*When I copy my free space web address this is what it pastes: 

HTML class. Value is http://www.wikitree.

*When I copy the last part of the address excluding the wikitree.com this is the result: 

this HTML class. Value is /wiki/Space:%E2%88%9

I had to enter by hand the address so that it could be linked to this posting, It will not copy and paste the address. 

But then it says that wikitree space profile does not exist then in parentheses the address.

this HTML class. Value is Space:%E2%88%9..... Dang it, did it again

http://Space:%E2%88%9A_Very_FAMOUS_People_I%27m_Related_to_by_Blood_Maternally

I created the link using the link tool above

Hello Corinne the reason you have trouble with the url on your free space page is when you first added it to Wikitree you added what looks like a tick in front of the title. Wikitree has problems with things like commas, spaces, periods etc on free space pages. I see you changed the name of the page but that won't change the url. If you add a new space page with the correct title then merge this free space page into the new page everything will be correct. You merge the pages here http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:MergeSpace hope this helps Terry

Thanks Terry!

Sounds like a plan. I appreciate your help. Next time I won't mess around with the name.
