I need to link two seperate hubs as a contiuation of one article. When I try to use the url of the second article as a link on the first article to give the reader continuity, I am informed that the link is bad. What am I doing wrong?
The link is bad? What does it say exactly? Simly copy the URL from the address bar of your browser and insert it as a link in your other hub. You can also select your hub in the window that opens when you try to create a link in a hub.
Thanks, Simeonvisser. I tried copy and paste. I also published the site I wanted to link to and copied the url in the address and then attempted to paste in the link area for the original article, no dice. At the time I got a "bad link notice. I will try again
I think it may help to actually publish the hubs. Only then can you see if the links are accepted as being valid.
Thanks to you as well Mr. Examiner. I tried copy and paste. I also published the site I wanted to link to and copied the url in the address and then attempted to paste in the link area for the original article, no dice. At the time I got a "bad link notice. I will try again
I tried the copy and paste feature again, with no luck, are there any other reasons why this is not working?
If you want to create textual links, you do not copy and paste the link into the text capsule. Instead, what you do is this:
- While in editing mode, type the text as you want it to appear, then highlight that;
- Click on the chain link icon;
- Paste in the URL for the hyperlink in the text box that appears (if linking to one of your hubs, choose the link from the drop-down menu);
- Click save.
I checked the textual links and link capsules in your hubs, and all links appear to be working, both to hubs and external sites.
your link is OK, may be you are doing something wrong.

I tried to add a relevant link in the body of an article, but the system wouldn't update it. Is that a glitch or a new policy?

Purely because i find it so cumbersome having to keep opening twitter, copy paste and so on. Then because it doesn't always show the url we then have to write out the Title and so on. I know hubstaff took it down, but I...
