What am I doing wrong? I can not get this link to work in the hub I am writing. Please help. Is it something I am doing or a mis function? The other link I added works fine.
Are you trying to use a Link Capsule? Or are you trying to make a phrase in the content link - turn blue - to another site/hub?
rmshdc is correct about the link capsule, but to *make a link within the content*:
In EDIT mode in a TEXT capsule, hi-lite the name/phrase you wish to turn into a link.
Click on the piece of chain ("link" - get it?) on the command bar directly above the text window.
From there it works pretty much like a link capsule (add URL, etc)
It is working for me. Here is what I did.
1. Add LINK capsule
2. ADD LINKS BY URL
3. Type URL address (complete address, eg: http://hubpages.com/hub/Mumaith-Khan-Item-Girl-101)
4. click ADD LINK
5. type LINK TITLE & LINK DESCRIPTION
6. Add title for capsule
If you want to add more links, the repeat steps 2 to 5, before saving.
I want to thank everyone for the basic directions they have offered. The thing is i have many links in published hubs and so I do understand how to complete a link. The problem is that when I do everything, finish, save, and then done editing. Okay now I click on the blue high lighted link words and what happens? It takes me to a page that says "sorry that Hub does not exist."
I have two links in the same capsule of "links" the 1st one works and the 2nd one does not. I just do not get it.
I went about it from a different approach so I could get the hub published. Thanking everyone in hubberville for recommendations.

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...
