    I've just recently found that when I click on the 'suggested link' button, no words in my article are highlighted for me to click on and then to link to other hubbers' works on Hubpages.

    Is the 'suggested links' button functioning fully?

    Thanks in advance for any help and tips.

      There have been some problems reported on these threads, I suggest that you do write to the hubpage staff about this

            No, thanks for your help as I've just contacted hubpages to say I can't see any suggested words link to link to hubs using that word!  : )

      When you click on the suggested links button it will not highlight words for you.  You cannot highlight words and then click on the suggested links button.

      You have to first click on the suggested links button and then select a word or phrase (no longer than 6 words).  Then it will give you links to add in and only then.  Sometimes there will be no links it will suggest.

      Yes thanks all!  It really sounds like a good change and I'll try this new tool out now - I feel all excited like a newbie in writing!!

    Heya!  We've actually updated the linking tool (I need to update our Learning Center entry on it- doing that today) so that it actually doesn't highlight words anymore, but rather requires you to highlight the words for you'd like to see suggested links.

    So just turn on the tool, highlight a word, and go for it!   big_smile

    It actually is a really good change in my opinion! it lets the author choose those hubs that he/she likes best rather than being locked into what gets generated as appropriate links. After using it a couple of times, I think it is an awesome revision! Thanks HP team!

    Although I had stopped using the "suggested links" a while ago, I find this new method of linking so much better.  It even gives you the option if you just want your own hubs or all hubs to choose from.  Great idea!  Thanks HP.
