    I have found a number of broken links due to /posters being added to the begining of a hyperlink URL.

    Here are the broken links:

    Directory: americana
    File: c95812410-americana-culture.html
    Link: Patriotic points to /posters/patriotic/ should be /patriotic/.

    Directory: college
    File: index.html
    Link: Affordable Art under $12.99
    Link: Celebrity Photos
    Link: Poster Cards
    All 3 of above links have /posters added to front of URL.

    I have manually changed the errors above in my html files and this has cleared the problem.
    Could this problem may be an error in the .pl program file that adds /posters when the link URL is a directory?

    You have to change your allposters.ini file.
    In your allposters.ini file you have:

    rooturl /posters
    rootdir posters

    The rooturl configuration variable specifies what the URL is to your posters. Since you have rooturl set to /posters that means that all the posters are inside http://www.DOMAIN.com/posters/ therefore the patriotic posters are at http://www.DOMAIN.com/posters/patriotic/

    If you want the posters to be at the main directory of your website (assuming your website is only about posters) so that patriotic posters are at http://www.DOMAIN.com/patriotic/ then you have to set rooturl to /

    The rootdir configuration variables specifies where the files are to be written to on disk. This is independent from the rooturl configuration variable.
