Fragment Identifier Not Defined

Example of error message:
'About the Author': fragment identifier is not defined in 'OEBPS/Text/chapter-07.xml'

After putting my epub through Sigil I have an error message similar to this for almost every section in the book.

Does anyone know how to repair this?

I'm not sure if you have a reference to "About the Author", perhaps a link (anchor)? Or if you've got a reference to a file called "chapter-07.xml"?

But my guess would be that there is no such destination, or it's being called incorrectly (broken link).

Seems like this happens when you paste something into Sigil.

It is in chapter-07.xml and is referring to something that doesn't exist, probably because it is referring to something in the original source.

See an example in this article:

I think this is a call botched reference (or the #id1234 part of an anchor).

It could be wrong at either end. The Anchor could be wrong or the Reference could be wrong.
The fact that it NOW persists across many files seems to indicate that it is in the <Head> section, which duplicates when splitting.

Search for "#About the Author" (without the quotes).

Most likely it's in the NCX file or the inline html toc section of the book (or both). Url fragments can't have spaces in them ... and thus the IDs that those fragments are pointing to can't have spaces in them. Match up all the url fragments from the links in your ToC and NCX to the corresponding ID of the section you're linking to. Make sure they're identical (and space free) in both places.

Check it with epubcheck online too. It is more thorough and catches things like footnotes that don't go anywhere, etc that Flight Crew doesn't check.
