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 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?

It would be useful to have the ability to automatically delete all 'broken links'. While sometimes I like to visit indivudual hubs to check the link, in most cases I simply delete the offending link.....
