I highlight the text, go into the text edit box, and click on the link symbol. I then paste in my Amazon link (click affiliate box), click save, and then I close the edit box. As the edit box closes, I can see that the selected text changes to an active link, and then it switches back to regular text. I've tried this countless times in all of my articles/hubs. Same thing. I end up using big bulky links instead (if I use any, I'd much rather use contextual links, less intrusive). I don't know if it is something I am doing wrong or a problem on HP. Any insight would be so Appreciated!
