It’s not just the fCC tests. I dropped http://www.cnn.com in your glitch and it responded with a 401 error. All the fCC tests said the same thing in the browser console. I would be suspicious of the validity check in your route that returns a 401 at this point. So I don’t think the fCC tests are to blame (they still work on my project).

Of course, it could be a glitch problem. Before looking, I would have bet on CSP/XSS/CORS problem. I would start by logging the route inputs and outputs to the console and running the fCC tests against your project. Just make sure you log where the origin of the output too (i.e. invalid url, good url, etc.).

I think it is because you changed the name value on the form input. Try using url instead of url_input for the name attribute value.

I tested the URL validator lib and it seems to work just fine.
