I'm trying to add a links capsule to a new hub.
The first link is fine; no problems.
The second link, however, refuses to "take." The capsule utility keeps insisting it's a "bad link." I have also tried to use different links from different pages on that website, all with the same result.
I've also checked to make sure there were no extraneous spaces before or after the link (doubtful, since it was a copy/paste and not typed in.)
If it actually is a bad link, then I should have gotten one of those infamous "404" errors or "internet explorer cannot display the web page" messages when I clicked on the link in the first place from the search engine page! But I did not--it navigated to the site just fine.
So why can't I input the second link into the links capsule? It works from the search engine..why not from here? What gives?
Thanks for any help on this head-scratcher.

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

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...

If I add a link at the bottom of a hub and the title has an apostrophe 's', it comes out like this:Poem: A Stay-at-Home Mum's Quiet DayIs this how the readers see such titles? If so, what can I do so that it makes sense, please?
