The HubPages referral/affiliate links in my profile are broken and I cannot edit them. They either have the referral link stripped out or get broken when I try to add or edit one.
Is this intentional or accidental?
Have HP decided NOT to allow referrals from within HubPages?
If it is accidental - please fix it.
If it is intentional - that is pretty underhanded and means yet more work on my part editing out all the affiliate links in my hubs. Or does it just apply to profiles? Seriously.
You may wish to read the thread that already exists on this topic, it's a known bug.
I don't have time to piss about going through thousands of old forum threads to see if any one else has noticed this problem. I see a problem - I report it.
This is not a "known bug" in any case. This looks to me like a future update that was accidentally implemented early.
Great job on the condescending scale though - that was a good 9/10. You must have been in training.
I have had a look myself on your profile and find it a little odd links are broken. Shoot an email to team@ Hubpages as this may be happening on more than one profile.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

Okay, I'm trying to figure this out. Is it advantageous to use a referral link in your own hubs when linking to other hubs of your own? I notice some people use them, but most don't. I mostly haven't, but I'm wondering...

Referral trackers which are supposed to give us a share of the income of people who sign up to HubPages via our referral tracker links on our hubs and have been in place for many years suddenly show up as broken links....
