I've used the "suggest link" tool, I then pick a link and it seems fine. After I add it, I click on the word with the link and I, most times, get an "oops" message.
Only one link, that I've used, works.
Am I doing something wrong, or is there another way to add a link?
I think that this has to do with hubkarma which I believe has dissappeared. I have an alternative. If you want to create links to your hub go to the box of capsules on the right and click on the links capsule. You can either search hubpages for similar hubs or write in a URL for an existing website you wanht to link. for example, if you write a hub about an actor or director, you can post a link to his or her imdb profile . I write about authors a lot and have links to their official society webpages
There is a problem with the "link to this hub" facility, maybe it is failing in the link tool as well. See this forum post:
not a problem. You can put the link capsule wherever you want. most people put the links capsule lower down after their text capsule. You can even press on a little arrow that will allow you to put the links capsule on the right side of the page. There is also an option to shade the background blue or gray. I like to move my capsules around when I'm writing a new hub to decide what's more visually interesting.

Is anyone having trouble with their hub capsules? I have 2 hubs just about ready to publish but cannot see what I am typing. I have gone and deleted my history to see if that would help and it hasn't.

Hi, all. I just created my first hub (http://hubpages.com/hub/Memories-of-Viet-Nam) and I'm having trouble with the links capsule. I'd like to add several links using the capsule, but I must be doing something wrong. I add the url in the URL box, then click on "Add...
