    I've definitely NOT had that problem.  When you hit "broken links" and get the list of hubs with link problems, then a lot of times you can just hit "retest" and  what had showed bad will wind up ...being good.

      So far, the only time I had a broken link triangle was when the Hub I linked to was no longer published, so I just deleted it.

        Hi!  If you use youtube videos in your hubs - then you have the problem more often.  Sometimes the triangle shows up, but if you hit "re test" then it'll turn out that there wasn't a problem

        But other times the uploader deletes the video, and you have to find another one.

          I have had that happen several times and also had a notice on the video to say that now it can only be viewed via youtube, although when I added it as I made the page it worked OK.

            I really hate the "only view able on youtube" thing.  I can't figure out exactly how that's beneficial to anyone.
