When I do a tag I can access the page in the url column. I have always used a html in the comments for when I upload to rootsweb. the comment urls are now not working. Is it rootsmagic or rootsweb? or me?
new Tag urls are not working. Old ones seem to be working

Huh? I'm not at all certain about your complaint. Please describe it using RM terminology and procedure.

When I go to obituary and then details and then tag and add I put in the url and under comments I add the url as an html so when I upload it to rootsweb, anyone can click on the html link and go to the original obituary. It has been working but for the last week or so the html link is not working. The html links work in the regular comments for pictures that I upload to my rootsweb ftp site.
At the bottom it just says Obituary and tag. It used to show the obituary and the link to the original as:
<a href=http://wc.rootsweb.a...uson&id=I103672>Obituary</a> This is what I showed in the comments on the "Tag" screen.

OK, so what you're looking at are Web Tags as part of a Source in a GEDCOM that was uploaded to Ancestry.com.
Have you contacted Ancestry to ask if THEY changed the way they process and post a GEDCOM file?

In update 18.104.22.168 we added the WebTag as "Extra Details (RM Specific)" items. We had users that were importing their GEDCOMs into other programs and the URLs were showing in the notes on the other programs. They wanted a way to strip them, since other programs can't use them. The Tag we used should have not imported them into the other programs by GEDCOM standard but these other programs were adding them anyways. Now it seems we have people that still wanted them there for other uses. I don't know how we can make everyone happy with this one. If you want to include the WebTags you need to check the "Extra Details (RM Specific)" as data to export.

Only an Administrator like Renee can delete them.
