So, there was a broken link on one of my Hubs and I replaced it with a good (and relevant) link but the alert for the broken link is still there on the list of Hubs on my account page. I don't really care if it stays there unless it leads to other problems.
Also, I have another Hub that shows the broken link alert but that link has always been a good one and I've preferred to leave it in the Hub because it actually has crucial information in it. It's been like that for a long time and I have always just left it like that.
I guess I'm just curious if this can lead to any problems or is it just the little broken link icon remains on the account page and doesn't matter that much.
I've always had to return to the site later and reopen the page to find the message removed. Don't worry about it until it has been on more than 24 hours.
Did you go to the "Broken Links tab at the top of your "My Account" page? I have found that the icon goes away if I do that, but not if I just edit the hub and replace the link.
Thanks, folks. I went in and deleted the link and then put it in again and everything's fine, warning disappeared.
However, still have that alert on that old Hub. Maybe I'll go back to that one and see what I can do.

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 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?

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...

On one of my hubs I keep getting an alert saying there is a potentially broken link but when I go in edit mode it does not highlight where the link is and as far as I can tell they are all OK! Can anyone explain what has gone wrong here please?
