Suspicious link text (contains placeholder text)

Issue/Question

Under the Accessibility Final Checks I receive the Likely Problem: Suspicious link text (contains placeholder text)

Environment

  • Omni CMS

Cause

Likely problems need to be reviewed by a user to determine if it's actually a problem or not.

Omni CMS Final Checks look over all the code on a page and detect accessibility issues that do not meet WCAG 2.0 (Level AA) standards. On your page it may have detected a link with suspicious text that needs checked by you. In most cases this error will show if you have any links with “Click Here”, “More”,  or similar generic text. Links like these are not very descriptive and are meaningless out of context, there is no indication where the link goes. 

Resolution

Check your page for any links with generic text such as Click Here, Read More, Learn More, or linking the text “here” or “more”. If you do not spot any suspicious text the issue can be disregarded. 

To fix any links:

  1. Check out the page if it is not already.
  2. Click the  Edit tab.
  3. Click the  Edit Button on the content area where the suspicious link text is located.
  4. Edit the link, replacing the text with more meaningful content. Focus on where the link leads.
    Example:
  5. Save the page
  6. Click the Publish button to run the accessibility final check again. Repeat the steps as necessary to replace any suspicious link text. When the issue has been resolved it will no longer display in the accessibility check.
