How to Fix an Invalid URL Input in AWeber?

The AWeber team has recently released a major upgrade to their email marketing platform. The upgrade includes several new features and improvements that make it more reliable and user-friendly. However, if you are one of the many users who have tried and tested the old version, you may discover that there are a few quirks and flaws that the team have yet to figure out. One such issue is the invalid URL input that some people have been encountering. In this blog post, we will discuss how to fix an invalid URL input in AWeber.

The Basics

To begin with, let’s discuss the basics. When you sign up for AWeber, you will be presented with a form that contains the following fields:

  • Email address
  • Website URL
  • Short bio about you
  • How else can people get in touch? (optional)
  • Choose a password (it should be at least 6 characters long, includes numbers, and at least 1 uppercase, lowercase, and special character)
  • Password confirmation

If you try to submit an invalid URL, AWeber will immediately notify you that the input is invalid. However, you will then be asked to redo the input. This is quite some feat because often times these errors are quite hard to identify. It is also quite annoying to have to go through this whole process when all you wanted to do was enter a valid URL. For this reason, we have decided to tell you guys how to easily identify and fix an invalid URL input in AWeber. Keep reading.

Use The Arrow Keys

One of the easiest ways to identify an invalid URL input in AWeber is to use the arrow keys on your keyboard. If you are using the up and down keys to navigate, you will notice that when you reach the end of the text, the cursor will automatically jump back to the beginning. This is because there is no text at the end of the URL field. When this happens, it usually means that you have hit the end of the line and you have to start again from the beginning. However, once you start over again, the arrow keys will no longer work (they will think that you are trying to navigate to a new line). To fix this, just hit the backspace key a couple of times until you see the cursor move to the beginning of the line again. From there, use the arrow keys to navigate as you normally would.

Look At The Top Of The Screen

Another way to easily identify an invalid URL input in AWeber is to look at the top of the screen when you are editing the content. If you are seeing a broken link, it usually means that you have either entered an invalid URL or you have copied and pasted a URL from somewhere else. When this happens, it usually means that the URL is not formatted correctly and you have to re-enter it. However, if you are seeing a jumbled mess at the top of the screen, it usually means that you have copied and pasted an entire URL and it is not properly formatted. In this case, you have to remove the text and start over again.

Test Different Formats

Sometimes the issue isn’t a problem with the URL itself, but rather it is a problem with the way that the URL is entered. The best way to test different formats is to use different browsers on your computer, or use different operating systems. If you are entering the URL manually (without using an address locator), then you can use copy and paste to enter it in different ways. For example, if you are copying and pasting from a word document, it’s a good idea to enter it using different shortcuts in different browsers (for example, in Chrome you can press Ctrl+V and then immediately press Backspace to enter the URL). One more thing you can try is using different email clients on your laptop or mobile phone. If you are entering the URL manually, it’s a good idea to test it in different email clients to make sure that everything is entered correctly.

Look At The Cursor Position

Sometimes the issue isn’t a problem with the URL itself, but rather it is a problem with the way that the URL is entered. If you start to type out your URL and you notice that the cursor does not move to the beginning of the line when you press the Enter key, it usually means that there is something wrong with the way that the URL is inputted. Try re-entering the URL and pressing the Enter key a couple of times to make sure that it is not a typing error. If this is the case, then you have to either remove the text or fix the input method so that it functions correctly.

Check The Data

Once you’ve tried all of the above and you still can’t identify a problem with the URL, it’s a good idea to check the data. Click on the Dashboard option in the navigation menu, then select Data from the menu that appears. Once you’re in the Data menu, you can click on the Usage option to display a list of every piece of data that is stored about your account. This includes all of the emails that you’ve sent and all of the websites that you’ve visited. From here, you can select a piece of data (for example, click on the Emails sent option) to display the details about that piece of data. If you notice that there is something wrong (for example, if you’ve entered an invalid URL), then you can correct it and click on the Save option at the top of the screen to have it apply to that piece of data. This option is extremely helpful because it allows you to track specific errors (for example, invalid URLs) and to correct them without having to check your entire account. This option does require some technical knowledge, but it is well worth it.

How To Fix An Invalid URL Input In AWeber

So you’ve tried all of the above and you still can’t figure out what’s wrong with your URL in AWeber. Maybe you’ve even tried all of the methods listed above and the problem still exists. If this is the case, then unfortunately you have to start over again because there is no fixing an invalid URL in AWeber (at least not that we know of). However, if you are one of the lucky individuals who’s found a way to correctly enter a URL in AWeber, then great! Let’s continue.

Identify The Correct Cursor Position

The first step is to identify the correct cursor position. This is quite easy to do; all you have to do is press the up arrow key until you see the cursor move to the beginning of the line. From there, you can start typing your URL. When you reach the end of the line, the cursor will jump back to the beginning and you can continue typing. This is the correct cursor position and it usually indicates that you have either copied and pasted a URL from somewhere else or you’ve entered an invalid URL.

Once you’ve reached the correct cursor position, you can start pressing the up arrow key to move it to the beginning of the line. This is a quick and easy way to navigate and it will save you from having to re-type the entire URL when you reach the end of the line.

Re-enter The URL As You Typed It

Now that you’ve reached the correct cursor position, you can start typing your URL as you normally would. However, once you’ve typed the first couple of letters, you have to stop and re-enter the URL as you actually typed it (without typos). If you notice, the cursor will jump to the beginning of the line when you start to type it, so you have to re-enter it after you’ve stopped typing. This is a common issue in most word processors and it’s because they assume that you’ve started to type a new sentence when you hit the Enter key, even when you’ve actually just started to type out a URL.

As you may have guessed, this is quite a tedious process, especially when you’re dealing with long and complex URLs. If all of this seems too much work and you want an easy way to enter your URL, then you can always use a service like Bit.ly to create short and memorable URLs. When you use a service like this, it will automatically create short and memorable URLs for you when you paste a long URL into the service’s input box. This is quite an elegant solution because all you have to do is copy and paste the URL from somewhere else and click on the Create Short Link button to get the short and memorable URL.
