why does THIS not work..

this is pretty much psuedo story, to get the flow going and to familiarize myself with squiffy

the following produces this error

OK, I just figured it out (Im sooo impatient LOL). Ok I wanted a few of these items to stay "hot linked"
In order to make this work, I had to make the matching passage match the recieveing passage.

So using the above as an example. I need to remove one of the bracket pairs (which I did), but I also have to do that belwo to the matching link so example to keep the TV link hot, i have to do

[TV](officeTV)
and
[officeTV]:

now it works keeping the TV hot

(in case anyone is curious why the links disappear, is so that readers cannot cheat an "go back" - but some times you have to keep a link hot for other reasons.

hopefully that helps someone

good video for this example helped me
