On one of my hubs I keep getting an alert saying there is a potentially broken link but when I go in edit mode it does not highlight where the link is and as far as I can tell they are all OK! Can anyone explain what has gone wrong here please?
You could try clicking on the links out of edit mode to see if they are still good. I have had a couple of alerts, one hub was all clear, the other did contain a broken link. I checked them in and out of edit mode.
This happened on my newest hub about cod-liver oil, too. "A potentially broken link" warning appears, but the links work.
I have had a few hubs give me this same problem. I just click the ignore buttons :p
I have a few hubs that say one of my links is bad, but it's fine and works fine. Not sure what's up with it. It's the same link across like 6 hubs.
I am not alone with the problem it appears! Thank you, Jen, Aya, Devin and Whitney for your responses!
I've had one hub that has that same problem. The link works fine, but it often shows the link is broken.
The ignore button fixes these cases. There are a few false positives that admin can't seem to fix, so that was their alternative.
I have had one of these before, it was quite frustrating.
The weird thing was, it was one of my published hubs!

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?

"A potentially broken link has been detected in this Hub."Has anyone else had this flag and after checking the links, there was nothing wrong?

I have what appears to be way too many broken links - the links are to my own hubs. Testing the links, I see that the little link thingy on the accounts page seems to be off, as those hubs are still there. Anyone else have this problem?I clicked the button for a retest.

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

Hubpages is giving me an error message saying I have a broken link on one of my hubs. However, I checked the link and it still works and it still takes me to the right website. I 'fixed it' but all I did was delete the old link and put the same link back in. Does anyone know if this will fix the...
