How do I link a hub in an answer?
Every time I try it doesn't work.
Answer from the FAQ section of HubPages.
You may include links to relevant resources in short answers, but affiliate links are strictly prohibited. Short answers containing links to unrelated Hubs or other sites that are irrelevant to the question at hand may be entirely removed by an administrator, and your account might be subject to a ban.
So, be careful with your links (I have copied and pasted and it works)
When you see a question that you want to answer with a hub -
FIRST - click to 'answer'
at the bottom of the text box it says 'make a hub about it' or 'submit answer'
if you want to answer with a hub you have to click 'make a hub about it'
if you just want to answer the question - fill in the text box and then click 'submit answer'
Is that what you meant by linking a hub to an answer? If you meant including a hub as a reference in your answer why not just cut and paste a link? However, including hub links in answers and forums seems to be a no no in regard to HP etiquette

Don't you get irritated when people answer your questions just to paste their hub links?
