So, I just fixed a broken link in one of my hubs. Upon saving the change, and exiting edit mode, when I scrolled back to that part of the article, the new link is showing, but the old link title is also still showing, in strike-through typeface.
What's up with that? I have never seen that happen before. Since I was not in edit mode, I presume that will show up to non-HP visitors, and I do not think it looks very professional.
Could you tell me what Hub this is happening on? I'll look into it.
It was my hub on Tinnitus--ringing in the ears. However, at this point, it does seem to have resolved itself. It took a couple of days. I was puzzled, though.
Phew! I just spent the last three hours getting rid of broken links and cleaning up my hubs! Still not finished yet, but I need to do it, so I will say its Hubpage Spring cleaning! lol!

I had six hubs showing broken links yesterday. I corrected all of them, but two are still showing the broken link icon. And, the edit date hasn't updated. Anyone else seeing this?

I have a hub imported from a Squidoo lens. It has a broken link, but I cannot remove or edit the link because the linked text is so long that there is no red X beside the link for me to delete it. I've tried changing...

I'm currently having issues with getting the "Edit Boxes" (for lack of a better phrase ^^ to show up when I click edit. The field for "title" shows up and is editable, but when I try to edit a text...
