I have been getting a large number of link errors for image information (e.g. http://Alexander). I am certain that these errors are generated within the HP system which is swapping the Name of Source and the Source URL in the database, or some such. It started as a tickle over the last 3 says and today I got about 20 of these. Please check and fix this as it takes a lot of manual change to correct it. This is happening to very old hubs. I am certain I did not make these errors. HELP!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
This is not a bug.
There is a bug that will result in a URL not being higlighted, but those indicated as broken are actually broken, so it makes these harder to find.
In most cases this is related to the URL source field in a photo capsule, a field that is optional, so you can remove it or replace it with a valid URL.
Please see this forum thread for more details.
I also checked your account for broken links and do not currently see any indicated on this page.
Thanks for the feedback. much appreciated - I don't understand why these 'errors' should suddenly pop up on old hubs that your system has been sniffing over for months or years. Perhaps the tests within the photo attribution area are new? But life goes on. Well see.
I've had the same problem. But they insist it's not happening. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/129302#post2715960

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

I've had a "broken link" error sitting on one of my hubs for months (years?). I keep checking the link and it works just fine.It would be nice to clear such errors so they don't continue to show up.

I usually use the source name: E.g. Brittany Banks, CC-BY, Via Facebook.But I know there is an easier way to do this, because I am tired of having to upload the photos to facebook to get the source URL. If I take the...
