Nonworking Redirect URL's all over the Account Statistics page

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    All of a sudden every hub has a strange URL that fails to work on my  Account Statistics page. They seem to be redirect URLs since they start with

    https://toughnickel.com/redir/?redirectUrl= … etc.

    This is happening to all hubs on all the niche sites. But the ones on HubPages are fine and working properly.

        Sally, It was only with niche site hubs. But it's fixed now. Evidently it was done to keep us logged in.

      Hi Glenn,

      What error message are you getting on that redirect page?

      Thanks,
      Tim

        It's funny but it's working now even though it uses that weird URL.  The error I got before was something about the "redirect has expired".   But as I say, it's working now. 

        They must have been in the process of installing a change to the system that uses these new URLs for redirecting to the niche sites in a way that no longer requires us to log in to each site. And I must have caught it just before it was fully implemented.

        I noticed a wonderful change after this. The redirect URL makes it so that we are automatically logged in on the niche site when following these links.  That's something I saw a log of people complaining about before (Those of us who had hubs selected and moved). Much better now.

          It is nice to see they are making so many better changes to facilitate us.

      I see the new "strange" URL Glen, but hubs load ok on my computer.

        Yes, they fixed it. See my other comment above.
