Links broken/uneditable in column...

So I have a section of my newsletter that displays the most recent threads in each category. I added each link individually and added my tracking code to each link.

I'm not sure, but I may have added a class and changed the bullet styling. The links were fine and working. However, in my most recent draft of the newsletter:

1. None of the links in this column work. Instead, the all link to the following:

file:///Users/User/Library/Caches/CoffeeCup%20Software/Responsive%20Email%20Designer/1551/preview/email.html#

2. There IS NO SPOT TO ADD OR EDIT LINKS when viewing the element area.

Additional information:

The element type is UL Link. It looks like there are two UL Link section when I attempt to edit. I cannot even edit the text. See attachment.

I spent a great deal of time on this section and I'd rather figure out what went wrong and hopefully fix it rather than spend a few more hours rebuilding it. I'm wondering if this is mis-nested/broken code, or if a Link List was converted to the wrong element type.

It's almost as if each link is it's own UL Link within a UL link. Neither have the option to edit text or URL.

Help is greatly appreciated.

I prefer not to but I guess I can make an exception in this case.

The file is too big to attach but here's a link:

The broken links in question are contained within the three columns of the "Popular Discussion" heading near the bottom of the newsletter.

I did find an older version of the project - it also did not have the links I added (probably too early a copy), but rather than two ULs this version seems to have, one of the components is a link list that's editable. Best I can tell is the editable link-list was converted to something else.

Something happened with the List Links as they got converted to an UL Link. I removed all those and re-added the List Links. You just need to now modify the texts.

Hey Scott,

I appreciate you taking the time to help. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get back to this until now. It's a little embarrassing. Do you still have the drop-box file? I didn't download it before you deleted it.

If it's too much trouble don't worry about it. Thanks.
