It is a formatting error. Instead of a “pipe” or “|” the lower case letter “l” was used. Note that the pipe is a little longer than the l. I went into the profile, edited one of these, and it turned green.

You can go into the profile and do the others, if you would like.

Thank you for teaching instead of just doing, George. It is so much easier to just fix it than to tell someone else how to fix it but then it is only helpful once. When we teach, the help keeps on giving. heart

It means the link is broken.

PS:  I fixed them.  [[ID|What it is called]].

I think we were simultaneously editing the profile.

Wouldn't be the first time!
