I’m at my wit’s end with this problem. It makes no sense to me. I have links built at the end of my book for reviews and the one for PINTREST works perfect in MOBI format. But in EPUB, it gets weird.
When in Calibre, I click on the link in the EPUB, it works just dandy. I can take the link and cut and paste it right into the browser and it works like a charm. If I click on it within Scrivener itself…no problem. Woosh…right to the correct page.
BUT…when I try it in any EPUB device, it will not work. The pic of the bookcover doesn’t appear and it doesn’t show any words or title. Like it goes to the site, but then stalls. And if you try and pin it, it refuses to go anywhere. It comes up with this error message…
Parameter ‘image_url’ (value http:null) is not a valid URL format.
Again, exact same link works perfectly in MOBI and in calibre (both formats), but anything in reader designed for EPUBS I have, it won’t work at all.
How is that possible? Same link, same address.
HELP!!! I’m going crazy here.
Thanks in advance.

Just discovered it DOES work in the Universal Book Reader in my Android Phone. It’s for EPUBS. Now I’m even more confused.
