► How do I resolve issues referenced in the report?
 
The best way to address these issues is as follows:

1. For a given structure issue, click on the page's URL listed under the Location column of the structure report (this directs you to the desired page).




2. At the bottom of the page, you'll find a red tab with the flame icon.  Click on the tab.





3. Within the expanded tab, click the error message link under the Site structure heading





4. A list of errors are populated in a contextual help window.  Expand the desired error message for options on how to resolve.



It might be easier to address category and guide level errors before delving into article level errors.  This top-down approach will help you resolve issues by viewing the site from a more holistic vantage point.
 
► Why does the error message reference a given article type, but the documentation for that error message references an alternate article type, {Custom}?
 
You have the option to create custom article types (MindTouch standard article types include: Category, Guide, Topic, Reference, and How-to).  If an error pertaining to a custom article type surfaces, the report will list the error by the name of the custom article type.  The documentation associated with the custom article type will remain labeled {Custom}.
