Why are there so many broken links on Hubpages images from garbled urls?
I have had to fix numerous "broken links" from image links that start with http://ttp:// or something similar. It seems like the system messed them up, and wonder if anyone knows why.
I can only add my confusion to yours. The same thing occurred on one of my hubs. I'd like to know why and how Hubpages was able to change image links within hubs without the consent of authors.
I suspect it was not HP but more likely a spammer got access somehow. Although it could have also just been a programming issue when HP were changing site features too. Maybe Matthew Meyers could enlighten us on that?
The most likely answer is a programming glitch I imagine. That is, if others also experienced it.
Yea, probably a glitch, but it's a little alarming that authored content can seemingly be changed by a glitch.
Ilona, This happened to several of my hubs and to others as well. You may want to post this in the forums under "Technical Problems." There was a post about this last week that Matthew addressed implying that it was not a system problem. However, I don't recall that it was resolved and kept happening.
yeah, i have been having broken links too, better test the url links again
These have nothing to do with HP. I have gone searching for broken links and they are missing at the other end.

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?

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?

Today I have had several alerts for broken links in my hubs that turned out to be videos and all were actually working when I tried playing them,
