I am getting broken link messages and several of them are trackers. Now that we have sub-domains, do we need to go back and reset each of these or will it be remedied by HubPages engineers?
I noticed that as well. Just re-saving them seemed to do the trick for me. Your results may vary.
Could you share an example that you haven't remedied? There are a number of broken link types that Edward has been working on fixing, but I want to see the pattern so he can fix it.
You shouldn't have to change any of your links, including those with trackers, with the subdomain migration. Sorry about the broken links!
Here are todays broken links regarding trackers. When I click on them they say "That page doesn't exist" or maybe it has been taken down. I have been deleting many of these prior to asking about how to remedy this. The YouTube videos that were supposedly broken today were not. I just pushed ignore to remove that notice. I have not yet tried to just resave each capsule as paradigmsearch suggested. Thought that I would show this to you first so that you get the example you requested. Thanks!

This is what is showing up. Do I need to go back in and insert the underscore? I do not understand why this has happened on some of them but not all.
As to those trackers used for other hubs; yep, I changed the url to the new domain format.
If some of your hubs are positively buried in these old format links, then maybe post them and maybe HP will sic their auto-fixer program on it. Note that I said maybe.
edit: I see that Jason has replied. Your rescue is imminent!
Just a quick note to everyone (Peggy & I have been emailing about this offline) that Edward has fixed this issue, so if you do see it come up somehow, please let us know!

This is a great feature HP has...flagging Hubs where links within those Hubs are broken.However, just in the last 20 minutes, four of my Hubs showed on My Account page as having broken links. Only one did. (As in, there was no yellow text when looking at those Hubs in edit mode, for three of...

Referral trackers which are supposed to give us a share of the income of people who sign up to HubPages via our referral tracker links on our hubs and have been in place for many years suddenly show up as broken links. What's going on? Are we now supposed to get rid of referral trackers? Has anyone...

I have read everything I can, mostly through HP, about referral trackers and how to set them up but I still am struggling with this. Is there a "Referral Tracker for Dummies". I have no previous knowledge of this and I would love a step by step instruction guide. A lot of the instructions...

I have not learned what referral trackers are for? Can someone please point me to a forum post that talks about this? Or if there is no historical post about this can someone tell me what this is and how does it benefit a hubber? I am asked to create one but I don't know how to do that and what to...

I get plenty of traffic coming from my trackers outside hubpages but it has not brought in any new hubbers through my trackers. Has anybody had any luck in bringing new hubbers with their referral trackers?(I have posted this topic in Q&A yesterday but Hubpages said this should go in Forum...

Sometimes the counters work.Sometimes they don't.Why is that? I'm talking about perfectly good, working counters that suddenly drop dead.I know the code is still good.And I know they are getting traffic because I self-click test them all the time. I click them and they go where they are supposed to...
