External Link in Footer

I am using the prestige theme and editing the footer.liquid to add an external link. 

Website by <a href=“https://www.artbybala.com” target="_blank">Art by Bala</a>

However, in the site in points to an internal link - https://jennifercavan.com/%E2%80%9Chttps://www.artbybala.com%E2%80%9D and of course that gives a 404 page not found error. 

Please help me on how to fix this.

Thanks!

Hi

Can we see exactly the code you placed in footer.liquid and a few lines before and after to see why this is happening?

Here is the code in the footer.liquid

 

<div class="Footer__Copyright" 

<a href="{{ routes.root_url }}" class="Footer__StoreName Heading u-h7 Link Link--secondary">© {{ shop.name }}</a>
<p><div>
Website by <a href=“https://www.artbybala.com” target="_blank">Art by Bala</a>
</p></div>
<p class="Footer__ThemeAuthor">{{ powered_by_link }}</p>
</div>

It shows up like this, but the link goes to the client's site.

That is strange - the code looks correct.

Although here on the forum it's trying to autolink to an IDN for some reason without the .com.

Perhaps there is some encoding issue going on.

Could you provide a link to the site?

Figured out the code I wrote in notepad changed " to a weird character and that was the cause of the problems!
