I have returned to my Hubpages account to find out that I have some broken links to tend to, but, when I view the pages in question in "edit mode", I am not seeing which ones are broken, i.e. highlighted.
I have attached some screen shots for reference:
This first image shows that I am, in fact, in edit mode-
And this second one is showing that, the link that is suppose to be broken, is not highlighted-
I am sure that Hubpage's system is accurate in its evaluation of broken links, and that there is, in fact, a broken link there, but I don't have the time to spend actually checking each and every link one by one.
It might be a broken link to a video that is no longer available, or even an amazon product. If it doesn't show up in your links at the bottom, look at your other capsules. If it is a broken video link I think you can even see it when not in edit mode, but you have to go into edit to remove the capsule.
I've run into the same thing. I had to go to the "broken links" area of my dashboard to see which link on the particular hub was supposedly broken. Turns out, the link worked just fine, so I clicked "ignore."
So I'll have to go check out my broken links section. I did not know there was such a thing in the dashboard. Thanks for the info!
Thanks to the help of you guys, I now know an easier way of fixing broken links, however the broken links highlighter for the edit mode is still not functioning normally. If anyone else here has the same problem, and you are able to fix it, please let me know how you fixed it.
