Action Network ID attached

This is very important: links copied from other Action Network emails contain tracking links; people's personal Action Network ID's etc.

The error you get is a pop-up box list this...

you appear to have a link with an Action Network ID attached

The cause

Using this example:

If you copied the link from an Action Network email that you had previously received - the link will have your personal ID attached (the &can_id=xxx part). You don't need any of the information after the question mark.

The solution

In this case you would just use

This goes for other links with user info embedded - eg. some Google links or links to Facebook or a fundraiser. Just cut out the question mark and everything after, make sure the links still works and just use that instead.
