    Here is what the message says on the publishing message section

    Link: /Pacific Basin Research Center/about_soka/accreditation
    Reason: Asset does not exist.

    [Destination: Production - www.pbrc.soka.edu] [pbrc/aspx] pacific basin research center/site-map Link: /Pacific Basin Research Center/about_soka/directions

    Rutvi,

    "asset does not exist" is the standard broken link message, meaning the linked asset is missing. In your publish report examples, every page that contains a link starting with '/Pacific Basin Research Center/about_soka' is going to be a broken link because there is no folder named 'about_soka' underneath the 'Pacific Basin Research Center' folder.

    It looks like the example broken links you've posted above are located in the footer block so correcting them there will probably fix alot of the broken links since this block is reused on every page.

    Yes, the pages with the broken links are listed in the report in the "Destination" section. For example:

    Destination: Production - www.pbrc.soka.edu] [pbrc/aspx] pacific basin research center/site-map
    Link: /Pacific Basin Research Center/about_soka/accreditation
    Reason: Asset does not exist.

    The above message says there is a broken link on the "pacific basin research center/site-map" page.

    Once you go to the site-map page, you can try to locate where it may be trying to link to "/Pacific Basin Research Center/about_soka/accreditation". In this case, it is in the footer so you'll know to go to the footer block to correct the link.

    Hope that helps!
