Link not working[edit]

I think the link created on this page is no longer working. For example

Ref#:83003496 Should link to THIS record.

So I think is template need to be modified in the following way.

{{#if:{{{url|}}}|http://pdfhost.focus.nps.gov/docs/NRHP/Text/{{{refnum|{{{1}}}}}}.pdf|{{cite web|author=Staff|url=http://pdfhost.focus.nps.gov/docs/NRHP/Text/{{{refnum|{{{1}}}}}}.pdf |title=NPS Focus: {{#if:{{{name|}}}|{{{name}}} (#{{{refnum|{{{1}}}}}})|{{{refnum|{{{1}}}}}}}}|publisher=[[National Park Service]]|work=National Register of Historic Places|accessdate={{{accessdate|}}}}}}}

I realized it is not the webpage as before, but I don't seem to be able to find a way to link to the search anymore.ARTEST4ECHO (talk) 15:58, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

That link is given by {{NRHP nomination}} and would not be suitable to link to for all properties. The problem with linking to that for all sites on the NRHP is that not all of them have that document online. Many have a placeholder document that just says "This file has not yet been digitized" (e.g. National Register of Historic Places Nomination: 74001389), and so would lead to disappointment for many users who clicked it. This Focus link (Staff. "NPS Focus: 74001389". National Register of Historic Places. National Park Service. ) on the other hand does give some information about that site, albeit only a skeletal record. Even for places with that file uploaded, however, the skeletal record includes some information not in the nomination file itself, such as the listing date.
Sometimes this Focus link is a little unresponsive, but if you try it a few times (maybe refresh the page if there are no results the first time), it should work. I just pulled up the record for #83003496 (listed as "Mormon Church" but included in National Register of Historic Places listings in Prescott, Arizona as "Former LDS Church", so that needs to be changed to reflect the name on the register) just fine.--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 00:45, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't know, neither link seems to work for me ever. However, it may just be something with my computers firewall. If it's working for you all, then I wont make any changes.ARTEST4ECHO (talk) 21:15, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
I am having the same problem. Can't get any of the items on National Register of Historic Places listings in McLennan County, Texas to come up. Woodshed (talk) 15:04, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
