I was just looking at my stats and noticed a strange black arrow pointing up with a white exclaimation point inside it. It is not listed in the symbols. Does anyone know what it is?
It means the hub has a broken link.
How do I fix that? It was not broken before.
You have to go into edit mode and check it. Links go dead all the time, if you have a video it might mean the video is no longer available.
Just edit your hub and re-link it. It happened to me once too. One of my links got broken.. I don't know how it happened but it did.
You go to the hub.
Edit the hub.
Look for a "highlighted" link.
Edit the capsule the link is located in.
Fix the link.
There were links that might have nothing wrong with, but the programming of Hubpages, requires you to at least edit the hub and save/done editing the hub. It will save any new changes.
I had a couple of hubs that said broken links and all I was required to do was edit the hub and leave, because the links were not actually broken.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for asking GreenCat, I just came to the forums to ask the same question!
It isn't anything you did wrong. This will continue to happen whenever a link we used on one of our hubs is not available anymore.
It is ok. All you have to do is change it to a new one.

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

I just found a (!) warning on one of my Hubs, due to two broken links to my own Hubs. Clicking on the links led to 404 error pages. But the pages the links were supposed to go to still exist, and are still published and...
