I have a hub showing up as having a link that's broken and in need of fixing. Which is fine, except it isn't - I've checked. Maybe the site was down when an administrator looked at it? But considering it's still showing up as broken, what do I do? It's annoying.
I would try to edit the hub, remove the link, then reinsert it. If there is still a problem, I would try to unpublish, then republish the hub. If that doesn't do the job, you can contact HubPages directly.
Hi Oona Seckar,
If the link is good, I would recommend going to MyAccount/Broken Links & Videos and then hit "IGNORE" in the report.
That will remove the issue.
Thanks guys. I wish there was a 'thanks' button for helpful posts on here.
Just wanted to mention that this once happened to me as well. I contacted HP, and as it turned out there was a space in the link that I couldn't see. They fixed it for me but it was something I coulda fixed myself by retying the link (not copy and paste, which I'd tried and kept getting the invisible space).
Thanks Lynda. My link actually works, though, which leaves me a bit flummoxed.
It is now happening to me. Very strange. I tried the link on a Word doc and on a blog of mine, and it worked. I asked at the "Need help" forum and Mark Knowles said that my link worked for him.

It says the hub has a broken link and there isn't one highlighted. After I tried all the links, I couldn't find one that didn't work. This is the hub barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/Free-Filet-Crochet-Patterns

I had six hubs showing broken links yesterday. I corrected all of them, but two are still showing the broken link icon. And, the edit date hasn't updated. Anyone else seeing this?

I have what appears to be way too many broken links - the links are to my own hubs. Testing the links, I see that the little link thingy on the accounts page seems to be off, as those hubs are still there. Anyone else...

So, I just fixed a broken link in one of my hubs. Upon saving the change, and exiting edit mode, when I scrolled back to that part of the article, the new link is showing, but the old link title is also still...

If updating a hub that is featured, say your best hub, a Hub-of-the-Day hub, a contest winner, or such, puts it into a no-index state until it's reviewed again, why would one want to ever update it?I have such a hub...
