    My hub, "http://  dzymslizzy.hubpages.  com/hub/Photography-A-Few-Lighting-Tricks"  has a broken link symbol, but when I carefully comb through it (in edit mode), nothing is actually highlighted as a broken link.

    What gives?  This is not the first time this has happened...but when I try posting this in the technical problems forum, I usually get "scolded" and told I am in the wrong place.  WTH???

      There was an issue that resulted in some URLs being broken.
      We have deployed a fix, but it may take some time for the broken links page to reflect the change.

      So they URL should be
      http://hubpages.com/art/photos-and-photography/113

      and is showing as the following on the broken links page
      http://hubpages.com/_art/photos-and-photography/113

        Interestingly enough, that is NOT a link that I placed.  I put links to specific articles; not random topic search pages.  I find that these kinds of "unauthorized" links show up from time to time  (from Google?  from HP?), making a clickable link from something I had no intention of linking.
        I'm often having to go back in and "un-link" these kinds of things.  It's annoying.
