I have created a hub and have highlighted my words, clicked on the link (chain) and put the website address in the url but when i click on the link it doesnt go anywhere? Why is it not working? What am I doing wrong?
Welcome to HubPages!
First off, are you still looking at in "edit" mode? If so, there would be a good reason why the link doesn't appear to be working.
Secondly, if you're not in edit mode and your link is still not working, then I would say that it was not entered properly.
You seem to be trying to anchor the text, to a link and the way you described it, then it should have worked, if you saved it.
If you are still looking at the text capsule inside the "edit" mode, the link will only change color to blue and be underlined.
When you close that text capsule and leave "Edit" mode of the hub, then the link should be active.
I hope that answered your question.
It seems that the hub has not been published yet. The links may work in preview mode when editing. Other than that, they will only work once the hub has been published.
So I have to publish the hub before my links will work? How do I know if they are working correctly?
While editing, you can click on "Preview" at the top of the editor screen. While in preview mode, you can right-click on the link, then choose open in a new tab or in a new window.
If you publish, you simply open the hub by clicking on its link in the control panel. That will open the published hub. You can then click the hyperlinks in the hub like you would any published web page.
I'd have to disagree. I occasionally test links while in edit mode by doing the following:
-Place link in text capsule or link box.
-Save changes in text box.
-Right click link.
-Click 'open link in new window' on the options menu.
Good to know. That is the easiest method, although there is nothing wrong with the other methods suggested either.
Very true. However, being the lazy person I am, I like to take the quickest and simplest way I can find.

I have been using the 'suggest links' tool on most of my hubs, and I think it is great. But there are a few links I would like to edit or delete, and I can't find a way of doing it. Does anyone know whether this can be done, and if so how?

Is it possible to add a feature to links within text and to the photos to opt to have the link open in a new window? This would allow the reader to stay on the original page. Bounce rates rise every time someone leaves a page before reading the entire article, for whatever reason. If relevant links...

I have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours yesterday linking an old series that I have together. It included about 20 or so hubs...
