However, I noticed that the Bing functionality with ChatGPT can still provide clickable links via its native citation format ["]. Do I need to move to this format? Anyone know how to correctly do this?
I tried my GPTs that recommend and include hyperlinks and they are still working for me. I tested yours, and the links did not work as you pointed out. There may be an issue in the way the output is structured in your instructions. I asked your GPT to remove titles and provide full URLs only. I was able to link to the referenced pages that way, but through copy and paste as opposed to click. I DM’d you the chat link if you want to check it out.
It looks that it is ChatGPT GUI, not the GPT will remove any external links when generating the response html. The GPT could output the correct mark down content in fact. I tried if only using the openai link, it works very well.
I do not think this change is good for use experience, which cause a worse experience. I would strongly suggest revert to previous version and do not filtering out the none openai links.
Yup, even when asking for markdown with exact instructions it cannot do simple task. Also when asking to retrieve links for spreadsheet in the knowledgebase, it is hallucinating and creating its own links.
Hi, I experienced the same thing today and it is becoming very annoying. I just wanted the user to be able to go to my website at some point to share data. I would like you to do something about this problem.
I might have isolated the issue. I found that complicated links that contain characters like `,<,>,(,) are more likely to not be clickable. I tried replacing them with the % encodings like %28 for ( and I was able to make some links clickable again but it was hit or miss.
This is quite sad limitation that’s now introduced in ChatGPT UI, it severely limits the functionality of customGPTs, and also use of somewhat advanced prompts to generate rich content with images and links.
I have a custom GPT that would call external API that generates report, and provides link to that report in response (because the report is much larger than is possible to return via API call). Now the only option is to present the URL to the user, and ask them to copy/paste it in a new tab. That’s quite poor UX. Whatever caused OpenAI to introduce such drastic measure, this fix causes more harm than good.
First off, thanks for all that are reporting this.
For those that have reported this or for others reporting such can you include a link to the custom GPT and also a simple prompt that is not working. Include the text of URL that did not work for you and the expected URL if it not an hallucination. I would like to try them over the course of a few days.
I just tried a few custom GPTs and seem to be getting all clickable links. As I don’t know if OpenAI fixed this curious to see if this is consistently reproducible.
