How can I repair a broken link? 3 of my 13 hubs have suddenly developed broken links.
Go to each hub, click edit, locate the link in each, which is highlighted yellow, and then edit the links, so that they point to the correct place.
Save when done by clicking done editing.
I clicked edit on each of the hubs, there is a yellow banner at the top of each hub that tells me that there is a broken link hilighted in yellow below .... No there isn't any , not a one on all 3 hubs. So I clicked done editing then clicked on links and several words were hilighted in green. When I originally clicked on broken links it showed error 404. Any suggestions?
Contact Staff about the problem- email: Team@Hubpages.com
If you've check every hub that said there were broken links and found none that were broken, then left edit mode, and still links are broken according to your statistics page...there could be a glitch. Hence, contacting Staff to solve the problem.
I found one hub that has a broken link.

This hub has a link with the word "French" in it, but when I click on the link it says there is a problem with. However, I was given a suggestion, which has the word "France" in the link, which I think was just a mistake on your part when you did your link.
Hi Kathy, go to this link http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats
Click the "Broken Links" menu on top left of the page.
Re test the link and check the result and fix the links if broken.
Those broken links have me pulling my hair out. Bad enough that my internet access has slowed to a crawl, but I have a total of 14 broken links in hubs just now. One is a video that someone must have pulled from youtube, and all the rest are my links to amazon.co.uk.
For some reason for the past few days they have changed all their links to products!!
I'd been getting a lot of broken links from them, but now I give up.
Come Monday my internet should speed up and I'll fix them. right now it would take more time than I have.
Update on my own broken links.
When did they instal that great feature on broken links that you can access from the stats page?
Clicked on it, it showed up all my broken links which had risen to 16, pressed, the 'retest' button, and they are all OK now.
For some reason on a retest all the Amazon UK links turned out to not be broken at all.
Still getting the occasional new message about a broken link, and just go straight to 'broken links' and press the retest button and that is fixing them
Yey This feature is awesome... gets done at the click of a button!! Way to go Team HP!!

My Hub all of the sudden has broken link warning. I have three links and they all work fine and go to the correct pages (license, information,wikicommons appropriately). What is the warning referring to?https://hubpages.com/health/Epilepsy-Sy … -Unnoticed

We are supposed to fix broken links by either removing them or replacing them. Fine. We don't want broken links any more than HubPages does because it makes for a Hub that we as Hubbers would otherwise be dissatisfied or not proud.I go to the capsule containing the broken link, click on...

For a couple of weeks now, when I go into my account, one of my hubs is showing a broken link. However, every time I go into it, there's nothing highlighted, nor is there a cross-thru on a link when I'm not in edit mode. I was thinking this is an HP glitch, but too much time has gone by now for...

I have what appears to be way too many broken links - the links are to my own hubs. Testing the links, I see that the little link thingy on the accounts page seems to be off, as those hubs are still there. Anyone else have this problem?I clicked the button for a retest.

Two of my articles on PetHelpful are showing as having broken links. In the first instance, when I look at the article, the link is a picture. This link http://www.sxc.hu/photo/679862 is showing as broken but is in fact clearly showing as a black cat drinking so I think this may be a 'glitch'? In...
