While I'm at it, are these buttons just completely useless?
I've brought this up before and been just told they're fine.
They don't work.
Yes, I have carefully stacked my hubs in their group in order. Yes, I pressed "save"
Yes, I even reset my browser and cleared cache/history/etc.
No, the order of the previous/next buttons does not match the actual order of the articles.
It's right maybe two thirds of the time.
Is there anything that can be done about this? I have people repeatedly telling me they missed articles in the series, or one or more have disappeared, and I have to keep explaining to ignore the next/previous links.
I'd be in better spirits about it if I hadn't just spent the last 45 minutes resetting mysteriously broken links... again... and I'm only halfway through the hubs.
I just checked this on my hubs it seems to work fine.
Why don't you a have link to the next hub in the series on each hub, that would save the reader some trouble.
I used have these broken links showing up earlier as many people left HP.. now since all my hubs have internal links and links to my blogs ..this problem does not occur any more.
Sometimes it works fine. Usually it almost does... but then it misdirects somewhere and just randomly misfires.
I do have links to the beginning and next, but people keep using the buttons because they're there and then telling me they missed things. It's not hard to see why. When I'm really paying attention.. like the last week, there hasn't been a single day that they all worked properly..
... that's the forward and back buttons.
As for the links, all my links are from my articles to my articles. Nothing has ever changed, and they're all right here on this site... yet MANY have had to be reset 4 times now. It's getting to be a real hassle as the numbers get bigger. I've only been here 4 weeks... so 4 times means that once a week on average, I have to go through every single article and MOST of the links are bad.
My brother called just the other day to tell me once again that I had a bunch of broken links.

Don't know if this is the correct term, but my back button, arrow thingy, doesn't seem to be working for question/answer. It's also refused to work on a hub just now. It seems to work fine everywhere else. Have tried...

Hi, I recently decided to click "ignore" on one of the words flagged by the spell checker, after this it has decided to ignore every single mis-spelt word on any hub, is there any way to turn it back on?

Hi,Two things I noticed with the Hubpages Exclusive feature. One was the hub I tried to claim, said it was already taken and I should pick another. So if it is claimed already, it shouldn't be a suggestion option. Also,...

I have poll capsules in two of my hubs that don't seem to be working properly. They don't seem to give the user a chance to answer, but instead show what has already been answered. I'm not sure if there is a...

If I click on my products on sale from my hub below they link to the Amazon homepage and not the products themselves. Why?http://hubpages.com/hub/Parvo-puppy-home-treatments
