    Just came across a broken link in one of my hubs.
    When I clicked on it a page said "No longer published"
    So, how do I fix a broken link?
    Thanks guys,
    James W. Nelson

      What para says.

      Highlight the link in edit mode, and go to the broken chain symbol in the edit box and click it to break the hyperlink.

      Save and exit, that should be it.

        Thanks IzzyM, but I don't really see a "broken chain" sumbol in the edit box.

          Do you see the chain link for inserting a hyperlink. It's top right in the box I believe....there should be a little chain next to it that is broken? I think.

          If not, just click on the chain link and manually delete the address it goes to. Does the same thing.

          The chain link thingie looks like a chain, sort of.

            Thanks again, IzzyM, I simply can't see it. At the bottom of my accounts page there is a "broken links" clicker, but it just tells you it's there. Strange it wouldn't tell you how to fix it. I guess I will just leave the broken links in place.
            Again, thank you

    My procedure is as follows:

    Highlight it.

    Delete it.

    Take nap.



    This procedure has served me well for years. big_smile

    If you can't see that image very well, hold down the ctrl key and press the + button a couple of times to enlarge it. This works if you are using Chrome or Firefox. Ctrl and - will put your screen back in increments to what it should be.

    The button is greyed out on my screen, but if you highlight the text first, it shows up clearly.
