There' a broken link symbol on my hub titled "The Wheel Keeps Rolling On" but all my links appear to be OK. What's up?
Sometimes you get a "false positive" on broken links. Most often I see them in connection to something with an RSS feed, in which case they often clear if you update that.
Occasionally they just seem to be there for link that isn't really broken and that's what the ignore option is there to correct. Admin invented that after finding that sometimes they just can't correct whatever is causing the false broken link reports.
Thank you, relache. I don't know anything about RSS Feeds, but your advice has solved the problem for me. It appears to me that the broken link referred to a link that had been reported broken many months ago and was corrected at that time. At any rate, all is well.
