    Later this afternoon, we will be implementing a few changes to the way broken links will be displayed on Hubs. You can read about the details in the latest Blog Post.

    The gist is that if you have any broken links that have not yet been fixed, you may notice that they look different, and that a broken link warning appears to readers when clicked on.

      And while we're at it, give the HP paymaster a hug for me.

      I read the blog post.  What about broken links contained within a 'links' capsule?  Or will only those in the body text of the hub be marked?

        It will apply to both Link Capsules and in-text links. smile

      Good move from Hubpages, this will bring better user experience.

    I am pleased to report that I am broken-link free, leastwise until the next one comes along. big_smile

    I just fixed mine right before I saw this post. Now I understand why it took me a while to spot it since it doesn't have the broken link statement highlighted at the top of the page in edit mode anymore.

    I had to click on every picture and link before I found it. It ended up being a video that ABCNews won't let me use anymore (okay, maybe I was lucky to have it that long) and an in-text link hidden in a paragraph with a line drawn through it. That's what gave me a clue that this link was the culprit. I deleted the whole paragraph since it was directly related to the link (lost word count but oh well) and changed the video with a much better one anyway.

    Thanks, HP! big_smile neutral
