The links on my profile page don't work any more

  1. TinaAtHome profile image73
    TinaAtHomeposted 6 years ago

    There seems to be an extra http on the links I've put on my profile page, so when clicked they don't go anywhere. Will I have to correct all these manually?

    The links I've checked within my articles all work, it's just my profile page and I've checked a few other profile pages and they don't work either.

      Er.. have you tried to edit them within your dashboard?

      1. TinaAtHome profile image73
        TinaAtHomeposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Well of course I could change them all by hand. I'm just alerting people to check their profile pages.

      I checked mine - both in-text links and those provided by HP have no problem.

    3. Uninvited Writer profile image83
      Uninvited Writerposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I found a fix, just turn naked URL links into intext links.

  2. waynet profile image72
    waynetposted 6 years ago

    Mine are alright, you may have entered it twice or are you saying they just appeared like that, cos they have done some major sub domain upgrading and stuff.

    Mine are fine.

    all mine are fine as well wink

  5. TinaAtHome profile image73
    TinaAtHomeposted 6 years ago

    Correction. All my links going to HubPages pages now have an extra http, making them incorrect. You people who have said "mine are correct" don't have links to hubpages articles.

    1. Stacie L profile image89
      Stacie Lposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      yes I do and I checked them. they are fine as I stated...

    lakeerieartistsposted 6 years ago

    Mine are fine too.   Could be a problem that is only affecting a small percentage of profiles.

  7. ngureco profile image82
    ngurecoposted 6 years ago

    Mine are working just fine. I think the easiest solution is to edit your profile so that you don’t have very many bloggers here checking on your profile page. Better still, you can contact Hubpages directly.

  8. TinaAtHome profile image73
    TinaAtHomeposted 6 years ago

    This is the report a problem forum. I thought I was contacting HubPages

  9. Uninvited Writer profile image83
    Uninvited Writerposted 6 years ago

    Mine are fine, why did you tell me om Facebook they weren't working? Could it be your problem?

    Edit: The one "naked" url on my profile does not work, everything else is okay

  10. Uninvited Writer profile image83
    Uninvited Writerposted 6 years ago

    Did you type your link in as it appears?

    http://_tinar/profile/TinaAtHome



    It should be http://tinaathome.hubpages.com/_tinar

    I think, I'm not sure how trackers work with the new domains.

  11. TinaAtHome profile image73
    TinaAtHomeposted 6 years ago

    I did not type my link in as it now appears.

    When I typed it in it had hubpages.com in it and not my subdomain. I haven't changed these links for a long time and now they are not working.

    I have another hubpages ID and I've put trackers on my profile page and they have changed over to working links.

    Thank you for posting this, Tina. It's too common for it to be a fluke; it must be a bug. I'll file this with engineering.

      TinaAtHomeposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks Jason. It would be useful to know if I should correct mine manually or if it will be fixed automatically.

  14. relache profile image86

    Jason,

    I just looked at my profile and the links that were broken were internal ones that had trackers in them.  Hub links without trackers and external links were all fine.

      rebekahELLEposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      My profile hub links have trackers and they're fine.

    2. Jason Menayan profile image61
      Jason Menayanposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, it looks like that's the pattern. I've reported this to engineering.

      1. TinaAtHome profile image73
        TinaAtHomeposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        It would be useful to have something that reports broken links on the profile page to us. We currently get notified of broken links within hubs, can you extend it to the profile page too?

        I've manually fixed mine, but considering it was reported 6 weeks ago I wonder how long they have actually been broken.

        1. Jason Menayan profile image61
          Jason Menayanposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          If you report it however (in this forum, to team@, using the flag feature) then it should get routed to the right party here.

          I apologize for the delay - the bug probably appeared as we were making the monumental migration to subdomains. A lot of bugs appeared then.
