What is going on with links?

    sleepylogposted 3 years ago

    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?

      1. sleepylog profile image95
        sleepylogposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        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. 
          http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/broken-links

          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.

      If you are using a text capsule, why not click on the chain link at the top by highlighting a couple of words like " How to make Castile Soap" and add your url and save.

  3. sleepylog profile image95
    sleepylogposted 3 years ago

    That is exactly what I'm doing Elsie.

      You add just the url, not all the other html.

      I have just been doing it a couple of hours ago and it worked for me.
      Hope you get it sorted out soon, sorry I couldn't help you.smile

    sleepylogposted 3 years ago

    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.

  5. sleepylog profile image95
    sleepylogposted 3 years ago

    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?

  7. sleepylog profile image95
    sleepylogposted 3 years ago

    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?

    1. Matthew Meyer profile image74
      Matthew Meyerposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, there is a delay.
      Please see my post above.

    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.

  10. sleepylog profile image95
    sleepylogposted 3 years ago

    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!
