    One of my hubs has a black triangle with an exclamation mark inside it.
    This is supposed to mean link is bad (or not working) on the hub marked,but I how can I tell which link it is.
    Do I need to check them all out?

    When you put the hub in Edit mode, the link will be highlighted in yellow.

    That is not a malicious link, that is a broken link.

    I noticed recently too that HP is reporting broken links that aren't actually broken.
    It's easiest to go to My Account ~> Broken Links, and repair them from there.
    I'm finding that just asking for a re-check is sorting them.

    Hey Eagle, I had a few broken links today and fixed them the same way you did, by editing the hubs. smile big_smile



    Edit: Btw- the symbol disappeared off my statistics page. All you have to do is refresh the page. smile

    This looks more like a bug than actual broken links, an unusual number of broken links have popped up today and manual checking and fixing is difficult, I have just reported the problem to team HP.

    I think it must be a bug as well...

    Why would HP take my flagging accolade off my site, after all the work I do fighting trolls and flagging spammers? hmm

    There's certainly something malicious about that! roll

    A Very Autocratic - 'Get back in the box' Bug it seems hmm  big_smile

      I lost my 'Helping' accolade too after I become more active. Yep something is broken.

    sometimes the triangle shows up and the links are fine. I can't get rid of two of them even though the links are fine.
