"A potentially broken link has been detected in this Hub."
Has anyone else had this flag and after checking the links, there was nothing wrong?
I have never been flagged for this but it should say which link is broken and why.
I had that error today on one of my hubs. Same story for me. It told me one of the links was broken and when I checked it was fine, so I'm not too sure what to do other than ignore it myself?
There were 2 such links less than 5 minutes ago. I tested them and they were fine. This also happened on a different one of my hubs 6 days ago with the same result. It's most likely the virus they can't seem to get rid of being obnoxious again.
Thanks for your reply. That helps to put it into perspective.
I know I'm digging into the past here, but if you wouldn't mind sharing, Au fait, what did you do about it? Did just ignore it since the links seem to work? I'm having the same problem now, and would appreciate your knowledge.
If when I check so-called broken links I find no real problem, I do just ignore it. It's a problem for the HP techies in that case and there's nothing I can do about it. I guess you could write the team and let them know if you want. I didn't.
I know this question is two years old. But I had this happen recently. I found the broken link was in the source URL for one of my photos. So check all your photo links. I hope this helps.
Sounds like another computer glitch. It seems these happen when HP is playing around with changes or when Google is acting up.

We just made a small update to the site. The biggest change is the addition of the broken link report. It will show you broken links in your text and link capsules.We'll be trying to test all links about once a week, and re-test broken links every 24 hours or so. A link could be...

I have a YouTube video at the bottom of a hub which used to be viewable, but now is not. However, the introductory still picture still shows up and it is very pertinent to the subject. It is of a piece of art that was auctioned at a record breaking price. The question is: is it all right to leave...
