I just published a hub yesterday and wanted to add related links at the bottom of the hub and every time I try they appear as "Bad Links." I just tried again with no luck.
They do work if certain words are highlighted and used within the text capsules, but not as separate links at the bottom of the page.
I am having the same problem today. I tried various hubs and linking different hubs. All with the same result, "Bad Links". It appears to be a bug issue still occurring on 7/15/12
Sorry for any problems.
Are you still experiencing the issue?
Does anyone have an example URL for a Hub that is showing the error?
I thought maybe it was because I had linked too many, so I eliminated some links and it still won't work. Even with my new hub, internal and external, it says that the link is bad. Is this a Hub Pages bug? I hope it gets fixed soon. I noticed this last week.
Hopefully when they get back to work on Monday they will notice this and address it for us. I'll just add the links later to my newest hub when it is working again. At least I now know that others are having the same problem with linking. Thanks for adding your voices to this forum.
It would be nice if they had a weekend person. Somebody that keeps an eye out and can fix things like this. Monday is not so far away now. It really is a problem and not us.
As soon as it is fixed, I will update mine.
They need an update page for things like this. Just like technical support of a corporation, a "wiki page" that says this is the problem, gives updates and then lets everyone know when it is resolved. It is much harder for people to search around, create multi forums repeating the same issues.
Of course there could be a place already, I may not be aware of it.
Thank you ladies for sharing the similar problem. Let's hope for some early Monday morning help and resolution.
What a relief ! The bad link problem is not only for me then?
Today, 7/17/2012 it appears to be working. I can now add links of similar hubs to the bottom of my page. The internal text links are still not working unless I do it manually.

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub...

I fail to see the need for the "related hub" section on each of my hub pages. Sometimes these hubs do not really relate to mine. Readers come to our pages to read the hubs we wrote or because they like...

Is it still OK to link to our own hubs? I have several hubs on baby names, and when I wrote them several years ago, I linked them all to each other within the body of the hubs. I haven't been good about updating my hubs...
