I recently published a hub about Quenya, the Elvish language invented by J R R Tolkien. I wrote it on Word then cut and pasted to my Hub. The article referred to Tolkien's mastery of languages and I listed the languages he was fluent in as well as the languages he gave courses in. However when I pasted my finished work onto the Hub those languages all appeared as links and they all lead to an error page.
Any idea how I can fix this.
The hub is;
Thanx for any advice.
It appears that your piece is derived from a wikipedia article that you've obviously changed but kept their links.
Their links on the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J_R_R_Tolkien (which I suspect may be the source) are relational. That means they use ../ instead of the domain root before pointing to the file.
By copying these rational links your article is pointing to pages on hubpages.com that obviously don't exist. Using the full root urls will solve the problem.
Thank you. You are quite correct in the source. I wanted to mention his linguistic abilities so I took the lazy way and copied and pasted from wikipedia. I had no idea that those links would be copied too.
Thanks again. At least I can fix it now.
Thank you for answering. I never knew the links would exist. What I did, newbie innocence, I took the list from wikipedia, copied and pasted to my word document, then used the word tools to remove the highlights and underlines. It never occurred to me that links would appear on my Hub. When they did I assumed they were automatically generated by HubPages.
I guess live links would be nice but I have no idea how to do that so I'll go ahead and try your fix.
Pleased you're sorted out now. Just one last tip that you might find useful when copying content to edit in Word. If you copy the text and paste it into Notepad first, this will strip out all the formating and links in one go. Then you can recopy from Notepad to Word and all you get is the text.
Gentlemen I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate the kindness of you both. I've looked around the forums and I don't get involved because of the sheer natiness I read there. So I was a little nervous about coming here for help. You both have been very helpful and I do thank you.

Two of my articles on PetHelpful are showing as having broken links. In the first instance, when I look at the article, the link is a picture. This link http://www.sxc.hu/photo/679862 is showing as broken but is in fact clearly showing as a black cat drinking so I think this may be a 'glitch'? In...

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?

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

I wrote a piece about Scorpio Sun Sign People about 6 years ago when I was new here. Most of my main niche is astrology, and instead of contacting me civilly to ask if there was a problem, my piece that was on Exemplore was just pulled from the site. I had just edited it tonight because it's a good...
