    Have noticed over the past couple of days, I'm getting lots of broken links from photos in my articles, so everyone may want to double check for those black little triangles.

      Click the retest button next to the broken link notice to recheck the links:

        Thanks, I hadn't considered that it might be a glitch.

      It's happened in the past. When there are many of these black triangles, there is a glitch in the system.

        Thanks for the info - I was getting quite worried about this.

    Same here, but when checked the links are fine. This has happened a couple of times before. I have no idea why.

    Yes, I got a genuine broken link yesterday on one of my ToughNickel articles. That has not happened in a very long time either.

    I deleted all such photos and videos without checking. I should have checked them.

    Just checked 29 "bad" links. All good.

    Broken links for photos? I have not heard such thing.  Broken links for videos are normal. You should check them every six months or so and change them with the right ones.

    I've stopped looking at the black triangles. It seems 99 percent of the time I'll check and the photo is just fine.

    Mine are mostly from pictures derived from Unsplash that the editors have used to update my articles. In some cases the authors of the pictures have removed them or the company has changed URL. I prefer to stick to images from Pixabay or Canva which are more reliable.

      That makes sense. I use Pexels and Pixabay without any problems.

      I'm getting a lot of my images from Unsplash so I got plenty of these warnings in the past few days. From now on, I will certainly remember that Pixabay and Canva are more reliable. Thanks!
