I've put a link in a link capsule for the first time; the hub I'm linking to is mine and both are published.
I clicked on the name of the hub I was linking to copied the URL from my browser went backed to the link capsule entered it into the URL box, tested the link it was ok, but I now have a yellow box with a message in it.
'A potentially broken link has been detected in this hub. It is highlighted below. You can correct the link by editing the containing capsule.'
I always new I had potential.
What have I done wrong.
Open in edit mode and repaste the link, that should work. I've had links break after copy/pasting them, but when I've repeated the process - and then not touched them - they've worked.
Also, make sure there are no spaces at the beginning of the link. I have had them cause a broken link before.

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...

I was linking older hubs to a new one by right clicking the hub name from stat page. It no longer works or there is not a command to link it directly to the page. Strange? I am not sure why.
