What does it mean when a link to a source on profile is typed out in red...

...I clicked on the link and it went to a page that stated this:

"The action you have requested is limited to users in the group Supervisors."  

The manager of the profile is still active.

Well, I was working on Boykin-3 and can't get back into it because I'm not the manager. Can someone help me get back in?

I was working on a family group in New Haven, CT.

Thanks for any help!
I'm in - if anyone did anything, thank you so much!

It probably means the profile manager used double brackets instead of single ones.  

Double brackets replace http://  So the link doesn't exist.

If it happens to be a profile you're working on it usually means you've made a typo and need to correct it.  Sometimes the mistake can be pretty simple.  When I'm creating links to say parents or a spouse in the biography, it's usually getting the WikiTree ID wrong.  I can't say I've seen the particular statement you saw, but lately I just assume I need to check ID and go from there.

Missing out a Space: or Category: prefix would be another possibility.
