Do we need to reset our trackers?

    I am getting broken link messages and several of them are trackers.  Now that we have sub-domains, do we need to go back and reset each of these or will it be remedied by HubPages engineers?

    I noticed that as well. Just re-saving them seemed to do the trick for me. Your results may vary. smile

    Hi Peggy,

    Could you share an example that you haven't remedied? There are a number of broken link types that Edward has been working on fixing, but I want to see the pattern so he can fix it.

    You shouldn't have to change any of your links, including those with trackers, with the subdomain migration. Sorry about the broken links!

      Hi Jason,

      Here are todays broken links regarding trackers.  When I click on them they say "That page doesn't exist" or maybe it has been taken down.  I have been deleting many of these prior to asking about how to remedy this.  The YouTube videos that were supposedly broken today were not.  I just pushed ignore to remove that notice.  I have not yet tried to just resave each capsule as paradigmsearch suggested.  Thought that I would show this to you first so that you get the example you requested.  Thanks!

        Hi Peggy,

        Thank you for these examples. So, the link that was before:

        http://hubpages.com/_joinandwritenow/user/new

        has been changed to:

        http://hubpages.com/joinandwritenow/user/new

        (i.e. the underscore disappeared)?

          Hi Jason,

          This is what is showing up.  Do I need to go back in and insert the underscore?  I do not understand why this has happened on some of them but not all.

            Peggy,

            My apologies for responding so late.

            Yes, the underscores would need to be replaced. Could you send me a list of Hubs that this affects (via email), so I can report this to engineering and I can fix them for you, too. smile

    As to those trackers used for other hubs; yep, I changed the url to the new domain format.

    If some of your hubs are positively buried in these old format links, then maybe post them and maybe HP will sic their auto-fixer program on it. Note that I said maybe. smile

    edit: I see that Jason has replied. Your rescue is imminent! smile

    Just a quick note to everyone (Peggy & I have been emailing about this offline) that Edward has fixed this issue, so if you do see it come up somehow, please let us know!
