I keep getting this message starting I have a potentially broken link on one of my hub pages.
I changed the link, tested it, and it worked fine, the message went away. 2 days later...the message is back?
Having tested the link it works fine. How do I remove or stop this message from appearing? (Naturally, without removing the working link, mind you.)
Has anyone else experienced this? or know why it keeps attacking my working link?
I had this happen yesterday with a link. I was really confused because I just wrote the hub and knew for certain that the link worked!
I went and checked and it had the % symbol in the link like (http://samplelink.com/%page). It somehow reformatted that way after publication. I went back and fixed it and it now works and I'm getting no message.
Is there a % symbol in the link by any chance?

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 noticed today that I've got several broken link icons on a few different hubs. The links go to hubs of mine that are live. I went in earlier today and tested the links and they tested fine but still show as broken. Has anyone experienced this before? If so, what advice do you have on what to do?

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?
