Anyone get erroneous messages from HP?
I have a notification that one of my hubs has possible links that don't link. The problem is, when I go to the hub everything is fine.
I handle these notices by watching the referenced Hub for several days before I even open it. Often, the warning disappears. If not, then I work on the obviously persistent problem.
The first thing that I would do, Mary, is check "Broken Links" (at the top of account page) and then open the Hub into edit to check each link - including photos and videos. If everything seems fine, then I would reply to message what I did.
That does seem to be a common complaint lately. If it's working when I check it, I ignore the message for a few days and it usually goes away.
Hi Dear Mary,
Yes, the other week I had received notice of two broken links on two different hubs. I went into the edit mode to find the pink highlighted links that were broken and everything looked fine. I went back again and checked and no highlighted area to indicate which link was broken. Then, out of the blue, I noticed the "Broken Links" button on my accounts/statistics page (as Kevin stated here), and when I clicked on it, it actually gave the specific links that were broken. So, there are actually broken links (people unpublished their hubs, in my case), but they will not be highlighted in your actual hub in edit mode for some reason now.
So great to see you back here this day.
After I check the Hub and see no broken links, I do a retest. It's usually OK.

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?

When I start a hub, there are certain areas where it won't let me type. The curser doesn't even show up. Like when I post photos, it won't let me type in the subject box or the source box or the other...
