My profile bio box appears not to have the 'link' and 'unlink' icons at the top of the box when I go to edit it. Slightly frustrating as I cannot even add a twitter button right now.
Can anyone help???
Go to "my account". Click on "profile". The link icon (which looks like a chain link) will appear only when you highlight some text. I hope this helps!
I tried that. The problem is they are not even there faintly. The undo and redo icons are there faintly and appear in blue when you need them however my 'link' icons are nowhere to be seen at all. I only realised they were meant to be there after reading a Hub on how to add links to your profile. You could see them there in their profile box in the photo but they are just not where they should be in my bio box.
How strange. Are you using a browser with blockers like Opera? If not, I have no idea why this would be happening. You should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them your issue, but they won't be able to respond until the weekend is over. What a strange issue. Hopefully you can get it fixed. Good luck and let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
What browser are you using? It works great in Google Chrome and Firefox. Not sure about IE.
We have had a discussion on this earlier ..this may interest you..but I am yet to verify the facts ... If this is true you need either an adsense account or wait for two weeks before you link to your profile ..
Welcome to hubpages
Ok... I wondered that. I have only been on for about a week so that could be the problem and I haven't had an adsense account approved yet (I tried when I first joined but I'm not sure how established you have to be before they approve it - is it purely due to hubscores or followers?).
I ended up sending an enquiry to the Hubpages team so will see what they say. Although it seems slightly unfair that I cannot put any links up in my profile for the first 2 weeks. Oh well. will wait and see. Thanks for your help!
Ok.. the link is there now - Horray! I obviously just had to wait. Thanks everyone for your help. : )
For future info (for anyone interested in this problem) the Hubpages team got back to me very quickly and said I need to be on Hubpages a week before adding links to my profile. I've been on 7 days today so it obviously just clocked over in the last few hours.

I've read on the forums that it's a good strategy to link from your Hubs to your blog and vice versa. However, whenever I do this, the editors remove my blog link. How do people promote their blogs on Hubpages?
