How do I make a link work by clicking on it?
I have recently published 3 hubs, including links to the previous and next one. I did this by copying the link and pasting it in the text box. Usually it turns blue and you can reach the next hub by clicking on it, but this time it stays black and doesn't work. I've tried carriage returns before and after the link, and it still doesn't work. What should I do to fix this? Thanks!
In the text capsule header, there is a little icon that looks like a chain link. You need to put your text that you want to link in the text box, then highlight that text, then click on the little chain link icon. A box will pop up to let you insert the actual URL link.
When you close the little chain link box, your text should turn blue and be a clickable link.
To 'unlink' - you will highlight the text that is already linked and then click on the little chain link icon that has a slash through it. That will take out the URL.
Hope this made sense. There might be some photo explanations in the Help section.

Ok I have noticed a few people have a light blue lettered link on their profiles that takes you either to their website or a few of their fav hubs. Could someone kindly tell me how to do this, thank you.

When you first make a hub, it gives you a long and short URL. If you forget to write the short one down, is there a way to find it later?
