Browser: Chrome 20.0.1132.57 m
The "suggest links" tool is not working in Chrome on any of my hubs. I cleared my cache, cookies, browsing history, and restarted my computer. I then tried Firefox, which also didn't work.
I've attached a screenshot of what happens when I click the tool, then highlight a key word. The link box pops up, but contains no links to either my own hubs or anyone else's. It just contains the community pages linked to the topic.
This has been going on for 2 days. Thanks for looking into this!
Sorry for any frustration this may be causing.
I was able to reproduce the issue you are experiencing in both Firefox 13 and Chrome 20 in Windows 7.
I have sent this issue to our engineering team to be addressed.
Thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention.
Thanks for your help. I really miss that linking tool!
Appreciate your help on this. At least the regular links tool is now working for adding similar hubs at the bottom of our pages. Will look forward to this being corrected as well.
HubPages is at the top of their game; thanks very much for being so quick to reply, and for always addressing our concerns quickly.
I can speak for all of us: we appreciate your work and look forward to what's to come.
This should now be working for all but Internet Explorer.
The engineering team is working on a resolution for that as well.
In the meantime, you can use Firefox nd bypass the issues.

It appears the suggest links tool is not working as intended. When I launch it, it appears to work, but click on an existing link, such as to remove it, results in the dreaded "Working" dialogue and just a hang. Refreshing and trying again does the same thing, and on all Hubs.Using...

Since the other thread was closed to reply, I opened a new one. I followed all your suggestions from the last thread. In fact, I realized my FF was out of date because, frankly, I don't like using it. I ran into all kinds of problems with it about a year ago. Anyway, I...

Top of the morning to you, gorgeous Hubbers!It is my pleasure this morning to announce the soon-to-come retirement of the Suggest Links Tool (that tool that you can activate at the top of your published Hubs, which enables you to link highlighted words to related Hubs).Why are we retiring the...

Why am I having trouble using the suggest link tool?No matter what hub I am updating, the suggest link tool never links! I have read how this is done, but seems to not work on my pc. Any suggestions?

It's almost embarrassing to me; but I have no idea how to know what backlinks are DoFollow, and No Follow. Someone please simplify this for me, and tell me how I can know the difference.I can research things and write fairly well, sometimes I can make a nice, pretty hub; but this internet...

I just tried using the Suggest Links tool and was dismayed to find that it not only cannot find a city like La Laguna or the town of La Orotava in Tenerife, although I have hubs about these places, it cannot even find any suggestions for Tenerife!
