I need to link two seperate hubs as a contiuation of one article. When I try to use the url of the second article as a link on the first article to give the reader continuity, I am informed that the link is bad. What am I doing wrong?
The link is bad? What does it say exactly? Simly copy the URL from the address bar of your browser and insert it as a link in your other hub. You can also select your hub in the window that opens when you try to create a link in a hub.
Thanks, Simeonvisser. I tried copy and paste. I also published the site I wanted to link to and copied the url in the address and then attempted to paste in the link area for the original article, no dice. At the time I got a "bad link notice. I will try again
I think it may help to actually publish the hubs. Only then can you see if the links are accepted as being valid.
Thanks to you as well Mr. Examiner. I tried copy and paste. I also published the site I wanted to link to and copied the url in the address and then attempted to paste in the link area for the original article, no dice. At the time I got a "bad link notice. I will try again
I tried the copy and paste feature again, with no luck, are there any other reasons why this is not working?
If you want to create textual links, you do not copy and paste the link into the text capsule. Instead, what you do is this:
- While in editing mode, type the text as you want it to appear, then highlight that;
- Click on the chain link icon;
- Paste in the URL for the hyperlink in the text box that appears (if linking to one of your hubs, choose the link from the drop-down menu);
- Click save.
I checked the textual links and link capsules in your hubs, and all links appear to be working, both to hubs and external sites.

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I have just noticed today that many of my hubs where I reference other author's hubs and included a link to their profile, the URL has been shortened to just "hubpages.com" - thereby removing the actual link to the author. I have no idea how long this has been happening, but I am going...

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...

(O.K., so I'm little slow on the uptake]I like writing for Hubpages but some of the technical aspects are beyond me. Alright, embarrassing to admit,but I don't know how to cut and paste a link. OK, I don't know how...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...
