Is it possible to fix a broken link?
I have hubs with broken links, but I didn't think we could link anymore. Dont see how I can fix them.
It means that the link doesn't go anywhere because of something that has happened on the other end. It's not something you can fix. Just delete the mention of it in your Hub. For example, if a word in your hub is clickable and goes to another site, just delete that word and type it back in as a normal word. If you have inserted an entire URL address to another hub, and that hub is no longer published, just delete the sentence that references that hub. Hope this helps!
Check to make sure the http:// is correct. Sometimes it should be https://. I always copy the links directly from the search bar so I get them correct. Other times links become broken because the piece you linked to has been removed from the Internet. In that case, find something similar to link to. This sometimes happens with You Tube videos.

I was attempting to update the links on a hub and was checking the previous links to be sure I didn't duplicate them in the same article. I was using the Suggest-a-Link tool at the time. The very first link I checked I had no memory of putting there. It seemed strange because I seldom...

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...
