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.
(Covers eyes with embarrassment) lol,thanks my friend-hugs
All done -easy peasy.
Well that was easy to fix for me X-delete capsule. Glad I don't see many of those scary symbols.
Ok another malicious link popped up ,even though I have deleted it ,its still showing on my accounts page as being there?
( I deleted it 20hrs ago)
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.
Edit: Btw- the symbol disappeared off my statistics page. All you have to do is refresh the page.
All fixed (now), refreshed, and waiting on the multitudes to arrive lol Thanks
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?
There's certainly something malicious about that!
A Very Autocratic - 'Get back in the box' Bug it seems
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.

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,...

I've had a notification of a broken link on my hub 'Lest We Forget' but there is nothing highlighted. What is going on? I can't correct it if I don't know what it is!

Obviously, it doesn't pay to brag in the forums!Right after my bragfest this morning, a few of my hubs got hit with malicious link skull warnings on them. Is there a quick way to check each link or do I need to delete them all and start over?

It's absolutely pointless to tell me that a link on a hub is a reported phishing site. . . .IF IT'S NOT GOING TO TELL ME WHICH LINK IS THE PROBLEM!It's absolutely ridiculous to NOT tell someone what link is a phishing site link, or the problem link.I create hubs with LOTS of links in them to sites...

Today I have had several alerts for broken links in my hubs that turned out to be videos and all were actually working when I tried playing them,
