I did see there was some on this, and it said to go to a site through a link to check the http status of my link in question. This site said the link was OK, but only when I put in an alternative URL, since I changed the name of the Hub from its original one, but that name comes up if I click on the link and click on copy shortcut as opposed to fully copying the link by highlighting it. The link is to a Hub I have published, but the Hub is online and the link for me works, so why is it highlighted as a broken link, such that all the other Hubs I have which contain this link are said to have a broken link ?
I just looked at your account and I did not see any broken links.
If you are still having problems, @WriterFox provided the correct way to contact us at this link.
If you contact us, please provide as many details as you can including the URL for the specific link.
Basically, I am being told there are potentially broken links on my Hubs, the ones highlighted when one goes in to edit mode. Now I thought these only applied if the Hub is not published, but all my seven Hubs are published, and six of them have the link to this Hub included within them, and when I go to my account, there is the icon there on those six Hubs which shows they each have a broken link. Now since the Hub with the broken link is published, and indeed since when I click on this link from any of the other six Hubs which contain it, and the link directs me to the Hub in question, why am I being told this link is broken ?
Go to your My Account page and scroll down to the bottom. Do you see the big grey box which says "Check for Violations Now?" Click on that and wait until it finishes processing. This can take a few minutes. When it is finished, refresh the page. If this doesn't solve your problem, let me know.
I tried that, and at first it finished processing and showed a link saying I could check for violations here, so I clicked on that word here and it said I had none but when I went back to the page they were still there, so I tried again and this time I refreshed the page, but they were still there, and then the thing goes back to check for violations now, so I am not sure what could be wrong. I will leave now as it is three in the morning here in New Zealand and come back tomorrow night and check it again. Thank You. Chris Lilly.
Looks like it is all solved now, and thank all of You for Your assistance. Chris Lilly.

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

I have a hub that is marked for a broken link. I double checked the link and it works just fine. Can a hub, be removed for having a broken link? Could my hub be potentially removed because it was mistakenly identified...
