    I see that there was a forum discussion about this 4 months ago. Maybe this is a glitch that comes up from time to time. Is anyone else having this problem?

    For my last two hubs, there were *no* suggested links. One of the articles is about enhancing photos. The other is about religion. I don't for a minute believe that there are no HubPages about photography or religion. I can seek out hubs on these topics and research how to turn words into hub links, but the suggested links tool should be providing me with suggestions. I *want* to link to other hubs, out of a sense of community, as well as for self-interest. Is there a specific procedure for asking for help with technical problems? I've tried asking before and gotten no response. Your advice is welcome.

      Okay, I just got the suggested links to work. I see now that the tool is working differently from the way it did before. Before, possible links would be highlighted. Now the highlighting results from my dragging my mouse over a word or phrase. I liked the old way better because I was able to check out the articles that I might want to link to without leaving my hub page. Now I have to use the search box to read the suggested articles to verify that they're appropriate and well-written. Does anyone know why they changed the tool? And am I missing a shortcut by which I can check out the suggested articles while remaining on my hub page?

    They changed the tool because people were blindly over-using it and I guess it wasn't doing what the wanted.  HubKarma in general seems to be getting de-emphasized.

      Well, I can see how that could happen and so can follow the reasoning behind the change. However, it would have been nice if they'd kept the feature of being able to read the other person's article without having to use the search box. Thanks for your reply!
