"Or go back to" link problem on contribution pages

The link back to a Name or Title page at the bottom of contribution pages recently became unusable.

Steps to reproduce:

-Start at any name or Title page, click the Edit button

-Select any category to Edit

-Scroll to the bottom, and right below the "Continue" button, you'll see a link back to the page you came from

-Click the "Continue" button.

That link is still there at the bottom of all subsequent pages, but it no longer links to any name or title page.

Seems that several hours after posting this problem, it's been fixed.  Daniel, can you verify?

Thanks.

@ron3 Yes, it seems to be fixed, although I've only checked it once.

I've just come back on here expecting to see a load of notifications, mainly on a post from someone who I suspect is the director/writer/producer/editor etc of a short film, but I have none.

He's tried to falsify the release dates of his short film (and had apparently been trying to "correct" for months), which he claimed said January 2020 on IMDB, but didn't finish production on the film until September 2021, and should've had an April 2021 release date, which makes no sense in itself, as I suspect he meant to say they didn't finish production until September 2020.

It actually had a 2nd of February 2021 internet release date on IMDB, and had 2 official trailer links for Vimeo which he claimed in the IMDB description were from April 2021.

It actually:

  • Had a 2/3/4 week theatrical run at a cinema where the short was filmed, which started on the 9th of October 2020 according to the media, or the 16th of October 2020 according to the cinema itself.
  • Was released on-demand on Amazon Prime Video, Apple iTunes, Google Play, Youtube Movies and apparently Vimeo-On-Demand too at one point, on the 30th of October 2020, although there is two sources who claim it will be released-on-demand for those same companies on the 23rd of December 2020.

Either way, all the release dates are for 2020, mainly October 2020.

So I followed his post, and secretly:

  • Deleted 1 video clip from miscellaneous links and added it to video clips
  • Corrected 6 miscellaneous links by adding dates and what they are to the description
  • Added 5 miscellaneous links (the 2 most important of which are still pending, as they're from the cinema itself, which has since changed it's name slightly, through the Wayback Machine which IMDB has been temperamental with lately)
  • Corrected the dates for the 2 Vimeo trailers which were posted in October and December 2020
  • Added another 6 trailers (2 from news articles, 4 from Youtube)
  • Replaced a dead video clip link for a new story from Youtube, with a video clip link that works for the same news story from Vimeo
  • Added 7 video clip links of the full video on-demand, which all had the same 30th of October date on Amazon, Google, Apple and Youtube.
  • Added Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, iTunes and Youtube Movies as distributors (the cinema was already listed, so I didn't need to add that). Amazon Prime Video is still pending.
  • Corrected the internet release date to say the 30th of October 2020. It's still pending.
  • Added the theatrical released date to say 16th of October 2020, with the cinema as an attribute, as I don't know whether it's had a wide cinema release since.
  • Added 5 reviews from October 2020.
  • Added 5 official sites for the shorts Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and Vimeo accounts. The Facebook and Twitter links have since been declined with a "Not specified. We did not capture a specific reason" explanation, so I'll be resubmitting them.

I archived all the links on IMDB one by one on Archive Today too, along with the IMDB page itself, just in case any of them go missing, not that there was any need, as like I said, the original 2020 release dates are everywhere online.

I would've saved them all on the Wayback Machine too, but it's not working again. It seems stop saving stuff at least once every single week.

That Sprinklr post from the filmmaker claiming that the release dates were incorrect has since disappeared.
