I have just been linking a few things on my hubs, and realised, Duh! that I have linked the wrong bit on some of them. you know when you go to put the link in, it comes up twice? make sure you always check if the link is good or bad before you save. Me being stupid, I did'nt bother to see which one was the valid one on some of them, and just deleted the wrong one!! how dumb can you get? so make sure they are all valid. I have had to go back and check all my hubs. Still haven't finished yet. Thought I would just tell you. Mind you, it is probably just me. Okay? cheers
It happens to the best of us. I noticed that when I add links in the link capsule, the list grows backwards. So I can understand what happened to you. It used to mess me up too. Now I just keep that in mind and I try to remember to reorganize the list of links before completing a hub. The links capsule lets you drag and drop the links, which helps reorganize the order. Just wanted to add my 2 cents. Oh, sorry, it's 5 cents now due to inflation.
Don't try to link a word twice because the editor gets messed up, it has happened to me once or twice. You need to first remove the link and then re-link the words or funny things happen.
good luck on that.

It just occurred to me that I might have been able to get commissions on my holiday Amazon purchases, if I had entered through one of my HP amazon links. Is that against TOS?

OK I know a lot about links, but somehow I can't make a damn link to turn into a live hyperlink in Yahoo answers! I've done it both ways; just typing in the plain URL, and also using the full a href= code.None of them...

Any time I add a link in the text capsule, it shows up when I save the link and turns blue. Then it disappears when I try to save the capsule. I don't remember this happening last time I edited a Hub. The affected hub...

I feel kinda silly asking this because I can't find any mention of this anywhere in the forums... If I want to put a link to something in my hub, as a reference for example, do I need to get permission from the...
