Anybody else having this problem. It's very frustrating. Started yesterday. All suggestions welcome!
The URL shows up with a message that says the page cannot be found because the poster may have deleted it or put the wrong URL on the post.
That's odd. 50% of the time I notice Facebook can't load a preview of a hub, but presumably that has something to do with load times and Facebook timing out. Are you copying the URL from within the hub or from your stats page? Does the problem only happen with HubPages URLs?
I copy the URL that is shown at the top of the article itself then paste it onto my Facebook page. Have done this a million times without problems. Have tried it with several articles both on my home page, my personal page and my RV article page...simply will not post. This just started two days ago and is a real problem for me in terms of being able to monetize.
How do you try to post? By clicking the Facebook button on your hub? If you click the button it leads to your timeline posts and posts the article there itself on your timeline. Otherwise, you should open your Facebook page in another window and then copy and paste the URL of your article on that page. The button on Hubpages is linked to the facebook timeline and not to a page of mine in my case.
I never use the FB button because I want only to post the link with the first photo.
I use sometimes the FB button and at other times the URL. URL is used when I want to post the article on my FB page titled Living Better. I do not find any problem in posting my articles. I suspect your FB a/c is not recognizing it. Are you able to view your pages at FB without any trouble and interact with your friends there?
Everything else works fine...it's just this one glitch. What is a/c and what might be reasons that suddenly it is not recognizing my URLs when I try to post? I don't want to post entire articles...I want people to come to HP and read them!
A/C is the Facebook account that you created on Facebook. But, you are saying that you are able to do other work at FB like liking the posts of others and commenting on their posts, etc. Then, I don't understand why the URLs pasted by you are not getting posted there. Can you capture an image of the FB page that says the URL cannot be found and post it here?
I couldn't print the screen so I copied and pasted their message here
https://hubpages.com/money/How-to-Keep- … stake-Ever
Page Not Found
The author may have decided to delete it, or there could be an error with the URL that you are using: http://hubpages.com/how-to-keep-from-ma … stake-ever
I've tried to post some other hubs to see if it was just that one, but the same message appears.
What is really weird is that I just now went ahead and posted the above article, clicked on the link and it took me to my hub article. However, the photo is not the correct one and the URL only partially shows the link.
Both of your above links are wrong. These URLs do not exist. I have just seen your latest article whose URL is https://hubpages.com/money/How-to-Keep- … stake-Ever
Try posting this again. You should copy the URL from the browser and not from the article. FB will not show the full URL when it is very long.
I don't understand what you are telling me. I have always simply copied and pasted the URL from the top of the article. Where would I find it on the browser? I'm confused?
A browser is a horizontal place between the two line margin at the top of your computer screen or your search engine tool from where you search any website or articles for information. Top of the article is a confusing phrase. It refers to your article Title. I thought you were copying the URL while you are in an edit mode. When you open any article in edit mode at HubPages, it shows your article URL which may be wrong. That is why I told you to copy it from the top browser of your computer.
OK. Thanks. No, I was copying the URL from the Published article. Team says problem is fixed, but last time I looked, it had started working but then stopped again.
It now appears that the only article that won't post is the one I showed on this forum yesterday. It's "stuck" somehow.
It seems you made a lot of changes in grouping this article. First, there was no grouping. Then, you grouped it under the topic money. Now, I am seeing it is entirely in a different field. The axle addict. That can be the reason. The URLs got changed again and again due to these shifts.
I don't understand not placing the hub in a category initially, but I did categorize it under finances and then it very quickly got moved to the niche sites under AxleAddict. At any rate, last night I was able, finally, to post it to FB! So I think the emergency is over!
This issue should be fixed now, thanks for your patience!
Does the problem occur with non-HubPages URLs? When you mention "home page, my personal page and my RV article page", are these all separate pages on Facebook?
I don't know because HP URLs are the only ones I post
By Home Page, TT2 refers to the general Facebook page. Personal page means the profile page at FB. I think RV article page is the page that he owns there.
That is correct...and I'm a "she" lol!
This problem is occurring across all of my FB pages. I tried turning off my anti virus, but it still didn't work. I checked to make sure that i am listed as the administrator of my RV page, and I am. I am totally baffled by this. Have had these accounts for years and this is the first time I've ever had a problem posting anything.
I used their help page and reported the issue and all they messaged back was to thank me for notifying them and that they would use my input to make FB work better...whatever THAT means!
Yes. One is the feed,one is my profile page and the other is a page I created for posting hub URLs
Try posting some other type of link to see if it is HP or FB that is having an issue.
I am having the same problem. I try to post a link to my hub and I get a picture with 3 ants and it says:

This started yesterday and is very annoying. I just made the first new hub that I have made in over a year because I decided to come back and start writing on HP again. Not a promising start.
You can put your own picture in the FB post and put the text link in and it does work, but you lose the lead in.

I just checked my traffic and have 1030 views from Facebook in the last 7 days. I always share my new hubs there and I think you will agree from my latest traffic figures that it has been well worthwhile doing this!
