For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.
It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!
We are currently unaware of any site issues that would affect your ability to add HTML links to text in text capsules.
Are you still having the issue in Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 8.1?
What is specifically occurring when you attempt to add a link in a text capsule?
Is it occurring for one type of capsule, one specific instance of a capsule, in all Hubs, etc? I currently do not have access to a Windows 8.1 machine, but have 2 of them and can test this later if the issue persists.
In the meantime, as you observed, we would advise anyone running into this issue in Internet Explorer 11 to try another browser like Chrome, Firefox, etc.
Please try clearing your cache as well.
Here are some general browser trouble shooting steps.

I was editing an old hub, typed some text into a text capsule, highlighted the bold text and went to hyperlink it... Pasted in my link and hit the insert button and it didn't do anything. Kept hitting the button and nothing would happen.
How about not using IE 11 and trying earlier versions with 8.1?
Why revert back to an older version when I can just use Firefox?
I thought you used that except for a certain problem.
I just tested in Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11 and was able to confirm that the "insert" button (when you click to add a link using the link button in the dialog) is, indeed, not working.
I have forwarded this issue to our engineering team so they can address the issue and deploy a fix.
There is workaround in IE11, however.
You can add links using the HTML view in the following format.
<a href="http://www.sitegoeshere.com">Text you would like to link</a>
This appears to be isolated to IE11 as I tested in Windows 8.1 using Chrome 30.0.1599.101 m, Firefox 25, and Opera 17.0.1241.53 and none of them had the issue.
I didn't realize we had an HTML view on here.
There appear to be some major issues with Internet Explorer 11 right now that are not specific to HubPages

We suggest using the latest stable version of Firefox for the best HubPages experience.
We just deployed a fix for this issue.
I tested using Internet Explorer 11 and the link tool is working again.
If you are still having problems, make sure to clear your browser cache and restart your computer.

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.

Hi everyone,I hate to even ask at this point, but will the people who were having problems with the new photo capsule in Internet Explorer see if the problems have gone away? We just did an update to the site and are crossing our fingers hoping that we've solved the problem this time.Thanks.

Is Google Chrome, or Firefox, better than Internet Explorer?I'm wondering if I'm going to run into problems with these. Has anyone compared these search engines? Which is the best one to use with Windows 7 ?

Every time I use IE as a browser, my computer gets hung up or I can only see part of a website, or I get an error message. I'm just curious as to why it even still exists.

I edited an old hub and found a message at the top saying my browser was under beta-testing and might cause problems, so I should consider changing my browser. However, I use both Firefox 5 and Internet Explorer, and these are two of the suggested browsers that I should change to! I am...

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?
