Hope all is well.
I was trying out the WC3 Link Checker and I got this error.
It involves me putting a link on a product picture.
I dont understand the error.
Can anybody tell me why its wrong to put a link on my site this way?


What to do: The link is forbidden! This needs fixing. Usual suspects: a missing index.html or Overview.html, or a missing ACL.

Software on the server is probably blocking the image based on referrer. This is very common practice. If you know the link is correct and works, ignore the error.
