Hello Hubbers, I am new to Hubpages and am having a technical problem with one of my hubpages. There is a symbol on it which says that there is a "broken link". There is a note which says that the broken link is highlighted, but I don't see anything highlighted. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Usually, when there is a broken link, it will be highlighted in yellow, when the hub is opened.
You can also find out what the link is under 'Broken Links' on your 'my account' page.
Look at the hub, outside of "edit" mode and move the mouse over all the embedded links you have included in your text. Click on them to make sure they are working/going to the right place.
The statistics page has a section that lists broken links. It on the left side, first column.
Once you have been able to identify the broken link and it's location, then edit the hub, go to the text capsule and edit it. Highlight the location and click on "chain-link" button above the text in the capsule. It should drop a small window down, so you can insert the correct link. Make sure it is the correct link.
Broken links can happen while building and testing your hub article. If you have broken links indicated after you publish the article, you can click on 'my account' at the top of any Hubpage. Select the third item 'Broken Links', near the top left corner of the page.
Any suspected broken links will be shown. You then have the choice to 'ignore' or 'retest'. If you're sure your links work, retesting usually solves the error.

For a couple of weeks now, when I go into my account, one of my hubs is showing a broken link. However, every time I go into it, there's nothing highlighted, nor is there a cross-thru on a link when I'm not in edit mode. I was thinking this is an HP glitch, but too much time has gone by now for...

Matthew, I got a broken link icon for this hub. When I put it in edit mode, nothing is highlighted. I deleted one pic I thought it might be and two promotional comments with a website.com. It's still saying that the broken link is there but I can't find it. Please check,...

We just made a small update to the site. The biggest change is the addition of the broken link report. It will show you broken links in your text and link capsules.We'll be trying to test all links about once a week, and re-test broken links every 24 hours or so. A link could be...
