Links reporting as bad links in new hub created 7/11/12

    I created a hub today. All of the links are reporting as bad links. The link is shown as the URL and goes outside of the link box. There is no hyperlink text or description for the link.

    This is the hub was created today and has issue

    http://bedbugabscond.hubpages.com/hub/C … eous-Earth

    Link to preexisting hub with old links that are today but link added today is not fine

    I tried interlinking this new hub to a preexisting hub. Links that were originally in the preexisting hub are correct but the new link is not (screen shots below).

    I am using a 3 month old Acer with Windows 7

    Tried fixing links in

    Ie latest version - did not work
    Fire Fox - Hubpages wont let me log in on firefox
    Chrome latest version - did not work

    Cleared cache browsers and cookies - no change

    The only task I was doing was creating a new hub

      Sorry to hear about the problems with your links.
      I checked your account here:
      http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/broken-links

      And I do not see any broken links.

      Are you referring to something else?

      What links are you seeing as broken?

        They aren't broken, they say bad link. They do not look nice and neat. Instead of seeing the title of the hub and a description, which looks nice, you see the url, which doesnt even fit in the box.

      I looked at your Hub and had no problem changing the Link title and Link Description fields.

      Here is how you do it
      1. Edit you Hub.
      2. Click "edit" in the link capsule.
      3. Click "edit link" under "Drag Links to Reorder"

      I added "Title Goes here" and "Link description goes here" to the the corresponding fields in your first link capsule in the Hub you mentioned so you can see where the values should go.

      Here is a Learning Center Hub about how to use the link capsule.

      There are also many other useful Hubs in the Learning Center.

    I have seen this while updating and revising my existing hubs today as well. It must be a site wide issue. I am sure the tech team will get it figured out. But, I get that it is frustrating!

    Yeah, I made a comment in another hub and someone else said they had it, too. A staff member asked me to make my own hub. The hardest part was following all of the rules in the faq! tongue I am not too worried about it.

    My hub looks odd right now, but I can go back and fix that once they fix this issue. In the mean time I have been hopping hubs. smile

    My screen shots look to small though. No idea how to make them bigger!
