The search facility for the Links Tool within the Text Capsule is Busted. It does not show suggestions for your own hubs to link to or any other suggestions.
I just tested using Firefox 17 in Windows 7 and it worked for me.
I would suggest upgrading to the latest version of Firefox and clearing your browser cache.
I have the latest version of FF and cleared the cache. It is still broken. The tool does not allow switching between the search options (you get one when it starts but you cannot get the others) - display is weird.
PS - Does not work properly using Google Chrome as well!!!!
I once again tested a bunch for suggestions in a Hub and the tool appears to be working fine.
If you are seeing an issue, please provide specific details and a screenshot as I am unable to reproduce any issues.
See the image below. The tool now finds my links, but the display is weird (it does add the link to the text). Previously when you clicked on the amazon and other tabs the tool would display these - now this does not work even if you click on the tab a hit search. Sometimes the Amazon ones pop up at the start and you cannot get the other links displayed (my links).
Thanks for the details.
I just tested in Chrome and as you described, it is only showing me the Amazon results and clicking "My Hubs" or "Hubs" does not seem to change the info displayed in the dialog.
I have sent this to our engineering team to be addressed.
This should now be fixed.
I just tested in Safari and confirmed it is currently working.
I just tested it and it seems the search function within the link tool only gives links to amazon products. Even if you switch the tab to search all of Hubpages or just your own hubs specifically, it still only suggests links for products.
While we're on the subject of linking to other hubs, I have a suggestion to improve the tool...Why not automatically include a hubber's referral tracking code in the link?

I have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours yesterday linking an old series that I have together. It included about 20 or so hubs...

Is it possible to add a feature to links within text and to the photos to opt to have the link open in a new window? This would allow the reader to stay on the original page. Bounce rates rise every time someone leaves a page before reading the entire article, for whatever reason. If relevant links...

As Cagsil noticed, we are in the process of testing out some changes to our text capsule editor. It's been turned on for a small number of specially selected trial users for a couple of days already, and now it's available to all. In order to switch, just change the settings on your...

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...
