    Hello again, another problem I am getting is that I will be notified of a broken link and then I will fix it and yet the account does not recognise that it has been fixed.What can I do to change this?

    I assume you have double checked by leaving edit mode and clicking the link?

    Yes I did do that...this is  anew problem for when I get a broken link in the pass and fix it, I would no longer have a problem. However, in the past couple of weeks my account does not change the broken link icon like in the past.

    That is strange.  It is still working correctly for me.  Hope you get it resolved soon.  Must be frustrating!

    overall it is not a big deal, I was just curious if there was something I was doing, you know, "operator error"?

      Highvoltagewriter,

      This page will show you the list of broken links that our system has detected:
      http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/broken-links

      From what I can see, the links that are marked as "broken" on your account are really broken. Most of your links are to hubs, which are now either unpublished or removed.

      I hope this helps.

        However, that is not the problem, I keep correcting the links (chose other hubs to link to) and for some reason the changes do not take! It did not do it up up until about a week a go.

          Okay, I resolved the problem by going into to edit and "breaking" the link with the hub-tool. This was different method than what I did before, just choosing another hub to link to. Thank you for the feedback!
