    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.

    These have nothing to do with HP. I have gone searching for broken links and they are missing at the other end.
