link to the text is broken, it goes to a blank page. This is the H.M. Cadell translation, which I cannot find online. Links to this specific text on other websites is also broken. It used to be on Archive.org.

http://librivox.org/the-rubaiyat-of-omar-khayyam-by-omar-khayyam-3/
link to the text is broken, it goes to blank page. It is based on a fifth translation by Edward Fitzegerald. There are several of these on Gutenberg.

The second seems to use the same translation as http://librivox.org/the-rubaiyat-of-omar-khayyam-by-omar-khayyam-2/
and its catalogue page says 5th edition rather than Fitzgerald, which is rather misleading, since it should be Fitzgeralds name there and a version number since there are two Fifth Edition Fitzgeralds.

http://librivox.org/the-rubaiyat-of-omar-khayyam-version-2-by-omar-khayyam/
Now, this says version 2 on the catalogue instead of "Whinfield Translation". It seems that to follow the pattern it should have the translation type rather than v2, because the other translations are lacking version numbers. Otherwise the La Gallien version should have a version number.

I hope all of that made sense.

Item 1 seems to have fixed itself. All the text links work.

Item 4 I am working on.

I'm going to ping Algy Pug on items 2 and 3 to see what he thinks should be done to correct them. :)

Oh. I always click on the name in blue for it to take me to the text link, and currently it just takes itself to its same Librivox page.

The name would take you to their catalog page, or if that wasn't filled in correctly, to the same project page as you were currently on. Did you try the "E-text" links?

EDIT: Oh, wait - there are no separate reader links for each section. :? In that case I don't know what you mean by "the name in blue."

Ha. Sorry its only blue when you scroll over it. I've been reading my State's budget today, so I'm a bit fried.

Under the link that says Catalog Index, where it says the name of the work, its in black, thats where I was talking about.

Oh! That probably won't work on multiple source projects. I never use that link. LOL!

[After a little time...] From looking at a couple recently cataloged projects, it looks like it only links to the text when it has one text to link to. If there are multiple text sources, it is just a dead link to the same catalog page. So this one is behaving correctly. You'll need to use the e-text links on each individual section. :)

Item 2
Here is a text link for the Fitzgerald Rubaiyat (which includes the text for Section 3 - introduction to the Third Edition):
http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Rubaiyat_of_Omar_Khayyam

Item 3
The above link could also be used for this.

Item 4
Here is the text link:
http://ia700409.us.archive.org/26/items/quatrains1883omaruoft/quatrains1883omaruoft.pdf

Hope this addresses the issues.

Cheers

Ah that totally makes sense then. Thank you both for looking into this!

This is all fixed as well as I can, I think. The text links in the project titles won't work for ones that have text links in each section, as I mentioned before. :)
