Some of the redesigned sites are not showing the attribution SOURCE link for photos. I see this on sites where the author bio has been moved to the center. On sites like Spinditty, which have not yet been changed over to the new layout, the links still appear.
I really hope this is a bug, as proper image attribution is very important.
Was hoping staff (or someone) would respond by now. I assume they still monitor this forum. (?)
It may seem like a small thing but if the image attribution is no longer a feature on our Hubs I've got 300+ articles to go through to make sure I am not wrongly using images that require attribution. I'll have some major editing to do, and I'd guess I'm not alone in that.
I'm assuming its a bug in the new layout, but it sure would be nice to know for sure.

Hi Hubbers, I mentioned in the past that we've been working with a company that helps identify SEO issues. Many of the issues they identify come in the form of penalties which they believe hurt the entire...
