What are the use cases of marking links in red and unabling to edit them?

Hi community,

Sometimes I find that links are marked in grey. In the editor, the red links are blue, but I can't edit them.

What are the reasons of this behaviour?

I would be really grateful for the answer.

Hi @Dolores Rhyme ,

Those links are either broken or someone created them in order to prompt them to later create a page named the same as the link.

A red link appears when the server cannot reach the page you have linked to for some reason.

In the editor, try unblinking the text before editing it.

@Nic Brough -Adaptavist-I'm really grateful for your answer. But, for the most part, broken links are editable. Why is that in some cases they are totally ineditable? Maybe, you have an assumption.

What do you mean by "totally ineditable"?  You can always edit the text of the body of a page, whether it's in a link, macro, or just the plain body.

You can see the screenshot in my question that shows a link that can't be editable, it's broken. That's why I wonder how it happens that some broken links are editable, but some you can only unlink and attach a new onw. Why so...?
