I am currently unable to post hubs on my Facebook page.

    Anybody else having this problem.  It's very frustrating.  Started yesterday.  All suggestions welcome!

      What happens when you try to post?

        The URL shows up with a message that says the page cannot be found because the poster may have deleted it or put the wrong URL on the post.

          That's odd. 50% of the time I notice Facebook can't load a preview of a hub, but presumably that has something to do with load times and Facebook timing out. Are you copying the URL from within the hub or from your stats page? Does the problem only happen with HubPages URLs?

            I copy the URL that is shown at the top of the article itself then paste it onto my Facebook page.  Have done this a million times without problems.  Have tried it with several articles both on my home page, my personal page and my RV article page...simply will not post.  This just started two days ago and is a real problem for me in terms of being able to monetize.

          How do you try to post? By clicking the Facebook button on your hub? If you click the button it leads to your timeline posts and posts the article there itself on your timeline. Otherwise, you should open your Facebook page in another window and then copy and paste the URL of your article on that page. The button on Hubpages is linked to the facebook timeline and not to a page of mine in my case.

            I never use the FB button because I want only to post the link with the first photo.

              I use sometimes the FB button and at other times the URL. URL is used when I want to post the article on my FB page titled Living Better. I do not find any problem in posting my articles. I suspect your FB a/c is not recognizing it. Are you able to view your pages at FB without any trouble and interact with your friends there?

                Everything else works fine...it's just this one glitch.  What is a/c and what might be reasons that suddenly it is not recognizing my URLs when I try to post?  I don't want to post entire articles...I want people to come to HP and read them!

                  A/C is the Facebook account that you created on Facebook. But, you are saying that you are able to do other work at FB like liking the posts of others and commenting on their posts, etc. Then, I don't understand why the URLs pasted by you are not getting posted there. Can you capture an image of the FB page that says the URL cannot be found and post it here?

                    I couldn't print the screen so I copied and pasted their message here

                    https://hubpages.com/money/How-to-Keep- … stake-Ever

                    Page Not Found

                    The author may have decided to delete it, or there could be an error with the URL that you are using: http://hubpages.com/how-to-keep-from-ma … stake-ever
                    HUBPAGES.COM

                    I've tried to post some other hubs to see if it was just that one, but the same message appears.

                    What is really weird is that I just now went ahead and posted the above article, clicked on the link and it took me to my hub article.  However, the photo is not the correct one and the URL only partially shows the link.

        Kristy:

        It appeared to be fixed as I was able to post two URLs...but when I tried to post a third, the same problem cropped up again.  Please see what the team can do about this.

    Does the problem occur with non-HubPages URLs? When you mention "home page, my personal page and my RV article page", are these all separate pages on Facebook?

      I don't know because HP URLs are the only ones I post

      By Home Page, TT2 refers to the general Facebook page. Personal page means the profile page at FB. I think RV article page is the page that he owns there.

        That is correct...and I'm a "she" lol!

        This problem is occurring across all of my FB pages.  I tried turning off my anti virus, but it still didn't work.  I checked to make sure that i am listed as the administrator of my RV page, and I am.  I am totally baffled by this.  Have had these accounts for years and this is the first time I've ever had a problem posting anything.

        I used their help page and reported the issue and all they messaged back was to thank me for notifying them and that they would use my input to make FB work better...whatever THAT means!

          Then, you may need to wait and see whether it gets fixed by the FB team.
          You can also try logging out and signing in again.

        That's what I thought.

      Yes.  One is the feed,one is my profile page and the other is a page I created for posting hub URLs

    Try posting some other type of link to see if it is HP or FB that is having an issue.

      I was just able to post a link to a YouTube video with no problem.

    I am having the same problem.  I try to post a link to my hub and I get a picture with 3 ants and it says:

    Page Not Found
    Copyright © 2017 HubPages Inc. and respective owners. Other product and company names shown may be trademarks of their respective owners. HubPages
    hubpages.com

    This started yesterday and is very annoying.  I just made the first new hub that I have made in over a year because I decided to come back and start writing on HP again.  Not a promising start.

    You can put your own picture in the FB post and put the text link in and it does work, but you lose the lead in.
