Why am I getting a blue link to nowhere?

+3 votes
I've tried everything, deleting, retyping etc. and now I have 2 of them. They just won't go away. Its got to be something very simple that I put in there. But I can't find it.

It's under Historical High Kings of Ireland #180 and #183

Have you figured this out since posting the question?  All of your links work fine for me.

No, it's only  180 1101-1119 and 183 1166-1198 That's showing up blue and MS Edge goes not know how to open it.

I copied and pasted it here and now its doing it here too. Can you see it or is it just on my end?
Both work for me, mac os with chrome.

I noticed that the link in 183 has a % symbol, maybe that is a malformed link?

(Curious about the spelling of WikiPedia instead of Wikipedia?)
If those are links in your next-to-last comment, they are not working for me, but everything else is fine.  I'm running Firefox 54.0 in Windows 10, and it doesn't care about the capital P in WikiPedia.

The only thing I can think of is that Wikipedia uses blue links, so maybe if you have copy-and-pasted something from there, the links have remained?  Just a thought.
