I'm trying to write a hub, linking to a couple of my other hubs, but the links don't work, saying the page cannot be found and I'm getting warnings about broken links when I know the links aren't broken and that the hubs do exist. What is going on??? So many things seem to be faulty on HP these days. Is anyone else having the same problem?
Are you sure that the Hubs are published?
Can you provide an example Hub and the links that you believe are showing broken in error?
The hubs are definitely published and these are the links: http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Make-Castile-Soap
http://sleepylog.hubpages.com/hub/Easy- … oap-recipe
For some reason the link to the first one appears as follows in the HTML: <a href="http://hubpages.com/http://hubpages.com/hubtool/hub/How-to-Make-Castile-Soap">Castile soap recipe</a>
even after changing it to <a href="http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Make-Castile-Soap">Castile soap recipe</a>
and saving the capsule it still doesn't work. Then when I look at the HTML again, the changes haven't been applied and it still says: <a href="http://hubpages.com/http://hubpages.com/hubtool/hub/How-to-Make-Castile-Soap">Castile soap recipe</a>.
For the second one the HTML is: <a class="broken_link" href="http://sleepylog.hubpages.com/hub/Easy-to-make-coconut-milk-soap-recipe" target="_blank">Coconut-milk soap recipe</a> but I know the link isn't broken.
There is a delay from when you change a link to it being reflected in the broken links page.
I just checked these Hubs and see that the links are not showing as broken on the broken links page nor in the HubTool.
So, it may be that the system did finally catch up and update the status of the links.
Incidentally.. I"m doing this in a text capsule, not a links capsule.
I am doing exactly as Elsie and you suggested but for some reason it doesn't work, so I looked at the HTML and that's where it's bugging out, I don't know how to fix it because it's not applying the changes when I save them.
In a text capsule, there is a button for HTML, pressing this shows you the HTML code of the capsule's content.
Could someone from HP please help me out with this? Now it's telling me the link to my coconut-milk soap is broken but the link to the Castile works fine. Perhaps Matthew Meyer could follow up on his post?
Thanks Matthew, it seems to be working now, so maybe it was a bit of a delay. Is that normal, the delay? Or just a glitch?
Well it's happening again in a different hub that I'm writing. Same thing, trying to link to the same two hubs and again it tells me one page isn't found and for the other, the link is broken. I left it for 12 hours to see if it would change after a bit of a delay, but 12 hours is more than a bit of a delay. I can't publish hubs because linking doesn't work, what am I doing wrong??? Or is it a bug? My hubs are published.
Ok this is still happening and it's been over a day now, just how long does this 'delay' last??? I know my hubs are published but I keep being told the links are broken. It's frustrating because I would like to publish those hubs. Why can't anyone in HP admin tell me what the problem is and how to fix it? A delay of more than a few minutes I can understand, but it's been over a day now!

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...

Since I don't have an affiliate to Amazon or adsense why does the violation list that I have too many of these? What is the difference between the two?I thought that you could have one amazon link per 50 words. Some of my pages have over 1,000 words and only 4 amazon links, and it's...

If this is not the correct place to ask my questions, please let me know where to go on HubPages, or if I should send an email to the people running HubPages.A few months ago an expert hubber with lots of experience and success for a time offered free critiques of hubs in one of the forums. I asked...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

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...

I apologise to Marisa, as I have no intention of 'stealing her thunder' for her excellent hub gathering statistics on the Plunges and Surges - http://marisawright.hubpages.com/hub/Hu … es-survey. I have looked at another aspect which was not included in the survey. I looked at about 10...
