I discovered some misdirected links this morning  in the section for Philippians 2:10-11. They were apparently meant for Isaiah 45 which is the passage cited in the text, but since there are only verse numbers without the chapter, the links go back to Philippians 2. The ones I spotted cite verse 22 and 23. I don't know if this a case where someone makes an assumption in crafting the link, but when you activate the link, you know it doesn't fit the context.

 Michael,

Normally when I find these I select It and use the report typo function.  I then include a brief explanation in the comment section.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Michael, I checked out the link on my computer and it jumps me straight to Isaiah 45:23. My default bible is the NKJV. Are you using a different translation?

There are several links, some work correctly, some don't. The problem Michael describes occurs particularly with references that are not written out in full, but just say v.22 or v.24, etc. There are some in the third paragraph below the Isaiah quote, and some more in the sixth.

I guess because these weren't strictly typos I didn't think to use the report typo function. Maybe we need a new word like linko for this. I'll use the report typo function from here on out.
