This happens every time. HubPages notifies me that a broken link has been detected. I verify that the link is indeed broken. If so, I remove it (most part of the rush so many months ago to link to other Hubs, now unpublished). When I save the edit, I see that the former link is now formatted with underlining. Why? To make people think it's still a link? This is a bug. If I wanted to format the former link with underlining, I would select the underline formatting. As it is, I have to edit a second time to remove the unwanted underline.
Please remove this "feature."
It has been doing this ever since I have been a member and declared fixed at least once. Hopefully reporting it again will make them look at it again.
This issue as already said has been around for years and has been reported many times (including by me) and is still unresolved.
The broken link can be replaced with another valid link that is relevant to your hub. Why completely remove it?
I'm talking about removing the forced underlining (no longer a link). Sure, I could add a new link, but right now I don't have time to go searching for a new one. The point of this post was all about the extra step required by HubPages "bug" to remove underlining formatting that should not have been a "feature" after the link was removed.

I have seen a link ad like this. Is it possible to place a link ad in HubPages like this ?

I hope I'm allowed to ask this question ! I make only pennies on my hubs. Granted only a few are evergreen, but I'm wonder if I would be better off taking one of my everygreen hubs which would lend itself well to an ebook app and publishing that way. I've used ibuild app and...

I seem to be having a problem with the underline feature in the text capsules. Bold and italics are working fine, but when I try to underline a word or phrase, and then I save the capsule, the underlining disappears and the gap between what should be an underlined word and the next word in...

I just found a brand-new broken link warning on one of my older hubs.It is a poem, and it was published BEFORE all the changes that made extra white-space formatting a problem (discussed in a different forum post).If I go in to remove the bad link, all my formatting will be lost to the new...
