How do I include a link within the text of my hub?
I have read numerous hub where a word is highlighted/underlined and when you click on it, it will take you to another hub or an outside website. How is this done? I am specifically looking to link to my other hubs and provide outside resources (not to sell or promote anything!) Thanks ; )
It is actually pretty easy. When you edit/write your text there is a menu with symbols (where the (B)old, (I) talic and (U)nderline buttons are) above your text. On the right side of that menu, next to the Omega symbol, there is an icon that looks like a chain. All you have to do is select the word (or phrase) you wish to use for the link to your articles and click on that Chain symbol. A new Window will open asking you for a Link URL, where you can type (or copy paste) the address of the page you wish to link to. You can also use the dropdown menu to link to one of your other hubs, all you have to do is select it from the menu. After you have entered the URL (or selected the Hub) you wish to link to press the Insert button. All done! )
All you have to do is highlight the word(s) you wish to create a link from, then the chain link symbol should suddenly become available to you in the tool bar beside the Omega symbol. Click on it do as it asks then voila you just created an in-text link.

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

Today I got a notice of a broken link in one of my hubs. I don't and have never inserted links in the text of my hubs! I removed the link and I would like to openly accuse the culprit of inserting links in other peoples hubs. But- It seems that even though that hubber has been here for 7 years they...
