I corrected a broken link about 3 weeks ago, by updating the link and saving the hub. However, the old link continues to show up in my broken link page. Clicking retest doesn't do anything as it is looking at the link that was flagged and not the latest one on the hub. There seems to be a glitch here when a link is updated.
Hi ILoveLegosToo (I love your username!),
Can you reply with a link to the Hub you're describing so I can have a look?
Thank you Camille for taking a look. Here's the hub...http://ilovelegostoo.hubpages.com/hub/restaurant-fundraising...the broken link is to Brusters, however I have replaced this link, but the old link continues to show up on the broken link page.
Thanks for emailing us the details.
We were able to reproduce the error and have forwarded the information to our engineering team. Thank for your continued patience!
Just wanted to say I'm having this problem too. I fixed a broken link in one of my hubs but the warning is still showing on my stats page; and also it is showing that the last time the hub was updated was back in Dec. 2014, but I fixed the broken link a few days ago. The link is fixed though, no problem there.
I found that if I changed the order of the modules or made a wording change somewhere else that it would then register the change and clear the broken link message. If you just change the linked list module, the broken link message persists.
There is a delay of several minutes from when a broken link is fixed on a Hub and that reflecting during a re-test on the broken links page. The warning in the HubTool will also remain for several minutes as well.

Restart your computer.
If you are still experiencing problems (broken links page not updating after and hour or more for example), please share the Hub, the capsule you are editing and the old and new links used via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can look into it further.
I checked your account and the only broken links I see are related to Hubs of yours that are not currently published.
You can remove the links to these Hubs or if they are published again the links will again be valid.

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 have a YouTube video at the bottom of a hub which used to be viewable, but now is not. However, the introductory still picture still shows up and it is very pertinent to the subject. It is of a piece of art that was auctioned at a record breaking price. The question is: is it all right to leave...

I had six hubs showing broken links yesterday. I corrected all of them, but two are still showing the broken link icon. And, the edit date hasn't updated. Anyone else seeing this?

If updating a hub that is featured, say your best hub, a Hub-of-the-Day hub, a contest winner, or such, puts it into a no-index state until it's reviewed again, why would one want to ever update it?I have such a hub that has an almost constant broken link symbol. Every time I've checked the link in...

It says the hub has a broken link and there isn't one highlighted. After I tried all the links, I couldn't find one that didn't work. This is the hub barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/Free-Filet-Crochet-Patterns

We just made a small update to the site. The biggest change is the addition of the broken link report. It will show you broken links in your text and link capsules.We'll be trying to test all links about once a week, and re-test broken links every 24 hours or so. A link could be...
