Are you talking about a YouTube video capsule with a video that is no longer available? In that case, try to visit YouTube, run a search, and see if the video is still published, then get the URL or embed code.
If it is a link to a site with a defunct video, simply remove the link.
No its not a video. It's a link that is in blue writing , I think link to another article. How do I unlink it?
If it is a video, then follow the instructions that Web Examiner gave you.
The "broken link" can also be any link from your site such as in link capsule, news feed or in-text link where someone has deleted their hub or article. Just go to "edit mode" and look for the yellow highlighted portion in your hub.
Note: I have noticed several YouTube links broken lately. Seems YouTube is tightening up on it users for material used also.
Did what you said saw the yellow highlighted area but do not know how to unlink it.
just highlight the yellow highlighted area and then click "broken link". When you want to do a link, you click "link".. so when you when to unlink something, you click "broken link." I hope I made sense.

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 a hub that is marked for a broken link. I double checked the link and it works just fine. Can a hub, be removed for having a broken link? Could my hub be potentially removed because it was mistakenly identified as a broken link?

I had a (!) broken links warning this morning on a recently published Hub, but it was not immediately evident why. No highlighted link when I went into edit mode. Are we still supposed to get the highlighted link with the new changes? I didn't see anything with a strike-through either.I had to go...
