How Do I Get To: Find.pcworld.com/72782 Need help getting to links in magazine
Posted 13 April 2012 - 10:59 AM
Have a subscription to the magazine. This has probably been asked before and answered, but I couldn't find anything in the forums.
How do I get to links such as
which appear in the magazine?
in my browser's address bar and was sent here:
I searched www.pcworld.com for the address, the number 72782, and even the subject of the reference article and found some things, none of which was the article I was trying to find.
What am I missing here?

Tell us what the link is supposed to take you to, and someone at PCW will figure it out. I presume it's a typo.

The find.pcworld.com/... URLs are pointers, like those from tinyURL.com, that send you to another location. What you did--entering it into your brower's address bar, was absolutely the right thing to do. They're used in the print edition.
The URL you gave us, find.pcworld.com/72782, does in fact bring you to https://onlinefamily...y/loginStart.fs, Norton's OnLine Family service. Since I don't know what article, in what issue, you found it, I can't tell you if that's where it's supposed to go.

It's a natural mistake. You were trying to read Rick's article, but naturally your wandered to my vastly superior prose.
