Crazy message appears on Facebook when posting hub link.

    I am getting this when I try to share on Facebook.  That is the only site that is giving me this when I post the link to hub.  I have published it.

    The author may have chosen to unpublish it, or it may have been unpublished by a moderator because of a violation of HubPages rules.

      Try putting the URL of the page you're trying to share into this page:

      And then, try reposting the link. Nine times out of ten, it will appear as you expect.

        Debugger didn't work.  I have used it before with no issues.

    Hello Linda,
    Just a theory:Have you checked the violations page in your hubpages account to see if the hub you are sharing is listed there?
    If it is it will show you what the violation is, you can fix it, and try to share it again after the violation is removed from the list.

    I've discovered sometimes it takes a little while after I have fixed a hub for it to be removed from the list.

    Alternately you could click on the ''edit'' button for the hub you are trying to share to see if there are any messages at the top of the right hand column in the edit mode.

    Hope this helps,

    I'm wondering if you entered the WHOLE url.  Did you paste the http:// or the https:// in front of the link?  FB might be looking for that.  Try the whole link:
    http://www     . 

    My ecommerce website requires the https for security for commercial transactions. 

    I'll have to try posting a hub article myself when I have a little time.

    Billie: I always do that.  I tried several other hubs and things were fine. I posted on other sites, no problem.  The problem was with facebook when I posted the link and when I used the Facebook share button.  I contacted HP, sent them the information I got from the FB debugger.  I guess they fixed it.   Now, I can't get rid of the Black HP box when link is posted.
