I'm getting notice that a potential link may be broken. I tested it and it is not broken. I do not want to remove that link as it is important to my Hub.
What should I do?
Since the link works, then delete the capsule and insert a new one using the same link. Sometimes this happens and above usually fixes it.
There is nothing wrong with mine. I still have my Broken Link symbols on two of my Hubs, and I have not had the time to delete the capsules myself. With my so-called skills, I would probably delete what I don't want to delete. I am waiting on Matthew to fix the glitch. Otherwise, until I get the courage to fix this, I have to wait on Matthew and make myself ignore the symbols.
All that needs to be done is to check for broken links in the menu on the left side of the "my account" page. If the links show there as broken, there is a feature to retest them, this resolves the issue for me every time, unless the link is actually broken.
Yep, and as this has recently happened to me- know that even after you do that, the notice may not go away for 24 hours or so.
