Broken Links?

    I have a hub that keeps getting flagged for two broken links which when I click on them go straight to where they are supposed to go.  Although I keep asking for them to be retested they keep coming back as bad links.  How can I fix this?  Thanks.

    Late reply but I had a similar problem.

    For me the issue was that I was linking directly to a pdf file. When I moved to link to the site the pdf file came from it got fixed.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!  I think it was just a mistake as the links worked for me so I had them recheck and it just took them a while to get to it.

    I've been having this problem for a long time on a particular Hub. The link that keeps getting flagged is definitely a good link and no matter what I do, I keep getting the alert that it's a bad link. Too bad too, because the link goes to a very legitimate academic article on the subject.

      That's exactly the same thing I was doing. I was linking directly to the .pdf file and it showed as broken. If you try to move the link to the webpage with the abstract it hopefully will get fixed.
