I'm trying to include a URL link in the Comments section of my hub to other hubs, but it keeps shortening the URL. Is this a glitch or by design? Am I doing something wrong? Do you know a workaround?
Thanks very much...
No idea why that's happening - have you tried using the short URL instead?
However, I'd suggest you're missing a major opportunity with that comment anyway. Why not take that reply and use it to create another Hub? Then change your comment to say "thank you for your comment, I will be writing a Hub to give you a detailed reply".
URLs will be automatically shortened in comments. They are nofollow anyway so there is no real problem.
Thanks, Peter, but it's not going there. When I click each link, it goes to an error page saying the hub doesn't exist.
Marisa, thank you, I just changed them to the short URL - but it still says the hubs don't exist. Actually, "That Page Doesn't Exist."
Can someone from the Hub Team help? I think they're the only one who can tell me if I've made a mistake somehow or if there's glitchiness.
I would email HP. I'm still getting "page doesn't exist" for the first link although the second one works. Doesn't make sense!
Thanks, you guys.
Peter, you're right, that did it. I see now that the sentence period gets tacked on to the URL. Thanks for figuring it out.

Wow! What do you do when someone writes a hub attacking you personally because you deleted a comment they posted to your hub?

Last night I couldn't answer somebody's comment on one of my hubs. I tried a few times, and my answer kept disappearing. This morning I added a new comments capsule, and deleted the old one, but now I lost several...
