I have a broken link sign on one of my hubs and it said that I can corrected when I edit the containing capsule.
What do I have to do?
your hub may have link which is no longer visitable means not working ...it may be another deleted hub of your or other hubber or any other link which is not loner active.... so click on edit ..to edit the hub and delete or update the link!!!!!!
Go to my account - broken links and click on retry if it is set right it will say link good if not still broken it will repair it . Hope it helps
When you open the Hub in Edit mode, there should be a message in a yellow box at the top which tells you whether there is (only) one potentially broken link or more than one. It will also tell you that the link(s) is or are highlighted.
The highlighting is a pale yellow that may be hard to see, so look at your screen from different angles if you don't notice it at first. Then, just open the correct capsule and either delete the link altogether (in a link capsule) or break the link if it is in a text capsule.
As spsingh mentioned, this could be a matter of a Hubber having an unpublished Hub that you had linked to at one time. It is possible that the Hub will eventually be restored, in which case the link would again become viable - and so you have to make the choice of whether to delete/break the link now or wait and see whether there will be a change in the future. The warning triangle will show up on your Stats page until the link has been changed (broken, deleted, or repaired).
EDIT: sofs' method sounds very quick and simple, so that may be the best way to try first. I didn't even know it was possible! Very cool...

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...

I have a hub imported from a Squidoo lens. It has a broken link, but I cannot remove or edit the link because the linked text is so long that there is no red X beside the link for me to delete it. I've tried changing the view of my browser to very small (60%), and I cannot get the red X or the blue...

On my account page where we are shown a list of our hubs with statistics, a Hub is marked with a black triangle if it has some broken link in any link capsule. It appeared for me when once but it is still appearing even though I have corrected the link and it is working fine. Please look into the...
