I'm trying to include a URL link in the Comments section of my hub to other hubs, but it keeps shortening the URL. Is this a glitch or by design? Am I doing something wrong? Do you know a workaround?
Thanks very much...
No idea why that's happening - have you tried using the short URL instead?
However, I'd suggest you're missing a major opportunity with that comment anyway. Why not take that reply and use it to create another Hub? Then change your comment to say "thank you for your comment, I will be writing a Hub to give you a detailed reply".
URLs will be automatically shortened in comments. They are nofollow anyway so there is no real problem.
Thanks, Peter, but it's not going there. When I click each link, it goes to an error page saying the hub doesn't exist.
Marisa, thank you, I just changed them to the short URL - but it still says the hubs don't exist. Actually, "That Page Doesn't Exist."
Can someone from the Hub Team help? I think they're the only one who can tell me if I've made a mistake somehow or if there's glitchiness.
I would email HP. I'm still getting "page doesn't exist" for the first link although the second one works. Doesn't make sense!
Thanks, you guys.
Peter, you're right, that did it. I see now that the sentence period gets tacked on to the URL. Thanks for figuring it out.

Last night I couldn't answer somebody's comment on one of my hubs. I tried a few times, and my answer kept disappearing. This morning I added a new comments capsule, and deleted the old one, but now I lost several comments people made (I knew that would probably happen). Now I tried to comment on...

Wow! What do you do when someone writes a hub attacking you personally because you deleted a comment they posted to your hub?

So, I've always thought it was the polite thing to do to reply to commenters, and thank them for their time and input, and I've made an effort to do so consistently.However, I'm wondering if this is now being discouraged by HP, as there is no available comment box for replies on hubs that have been...

I got a message to check my comments and was sent to my Tom Dooley hub and I cannot see any comments there although there should be some!How can this be my problem? I have nothing to do with whether comments are showing or not do I? It is suggested I might want to disable them until I can fix them....

There seems to be a problem posting comments on HubPages. I am only able to answer one comment at a time before I have to go back to the email notifications to answer another on the same Hub. Is anyone else experiencing this problem. It is not something I have ever...

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?
