I have added my links to my hub 4 times and they still do not save when I click done editing of my hub. Ony some will be listed and then when I add them and remove the one that I don't want there the old one is still there and the new ones are not. I have clicked done after each addition and save in the capsule to see if it will save them that way, but I just did it and it still didn't work. This is frustrating.
Hi Lady Guinevere,
Thanks for reporting this issue.
Which of your hubs is having the problem and which links are you trying to add. I will take a look at it and see what's up.
http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Churchs-Tec … -Your-Soul
I am trying to ad my own hubs on the link page that it will not save. Those are What Is A Minister, How My Rape Brought Me Into The Light and I heard Jesus's Calling.
Thanks for the additional info. I'll see if I can reproduce the issue.
Hi Lady Genevere,
OK, I was able to figure out the issue. There is a bug in the link capsule that only affects the "What is A Minister" link. If you skip this link, you should be able to add the other hub links.
We should have the fix to the link capsule out this week or next. I'll post here when it the bug in the link capsule is fixed.
Thanks for reporting this!
Larry I had this all weekend with my Chrismas hubs. One hub I had to input the links 11 times before they "took". Sorry was gonna report it but I've been ill and in hospital this week nd it slipped my mind, but it's not just LadyG's hubs...
Hi Julie-Ann, Lady Guinevere,
Yes, to confirm, I think that we have identified the cause of the problem with the link capsule and are now working on the best fix.
Julie-Ann, I hope that you are feeling better now.
Hospital cause is better, now have an abscess on base of my spine so seems to be a poorly week for me! I'll be fine I'm sure!
We just pushed out a fix to the link capsule issue that Lady Guinevere raised.
This will fix the problem that you were facing with your What-Is-a-Minister hub.
Hopefully, this will fix your link capsule issue too.
Larry I have broken links showing in my hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Green-Christmas … -Christmas over and over again - and they are NOT broken! They all work just fine when you click on them but it keeps showing as broken links.
Please can someone help with this because it's just taking so much of my time to keep saving the fixes over and over and nothing works!
I've tried EVERYTHING - from testing the links (all are ok) to editng them and now have removed them all one at a time and re-added them by searching hub pages as opposed to putting in the urls - NOTHING WORKS!
As an aside, is this affecting my traffic/search engine ratings? What effect does the "broken links" flag have, as it's annoying when it's NOT a case of broken links?
I see that you selected "IGNORE" for your broken links so hopefully that solves your problem.
In the mean time, I'm investigating what's up. We have a special check for HubPage links so I am a bit surprised by so many bad links. Once I figure out what's up, I'll post the status on this forum thread.
Thats been a problem in the past Julie-Ann - Larry maybe the fix broke it again? Julie-Ann - just ignore it for a while - its only a warning on HP - and if they aren't actually broken then Google won't care!
Maybe the problem is on the links' end? Some webpages disappear, perhaps for less than a minute, while they're being updated.
If a crawler hits the site at the wrong time, all it may "see" is ... nothing, or a 404 page.
That said, I had a false "broken link" last night, after a few weeks of no breaks at all.
Larry, I am having this problem (disappearing links) on my HubMob hub of the week: http://hubpages.com/hub/Choosing-an-Organic-Shampoo
This is the most important of the links I'm trying to add:
http://www.organicconsumers.org/bodycar … hampoo.cfm
great thanks. I chose ignore becuase it was just driving me crazy!!!
I checked out the bad links and it looks like 3 are really broken links. Would you like me to reenable the warnings or would you prefer to keep them ignored?
can you reenable them for me thanks? I really don't know how to reenable the warnings (better tell me how to do that too sorry)
At this time, they can't be reenabled from the broken link page. I am planning to add this option to HubPages in the next week or so.
Ok can you reenable the warnings then thanks?
Ok thanks - so, Larry, I cleaned them all up but they were still all showing as broken my end. Is there an issue with the links module?
Larry I'm STILL showing broken links that work perfectly every time I click on them. How can i get round this. I've removed them and replaced them with the link and nothing seems to clear up the broken links isue...
Not a problem, but I just can't seem to fix them - and there is nothing wrong with the links anyway!
I see that you have already marked them ignored. :-) I'm very glad that the "ignore" feature is helping with this.
In the mean time, I'll try to get the issue in the code fixed today. I had planned to work on it last week but ran out of time. I'll post here when I get the issue fixed.
I am not facing such problem but yesterday it took several attempts to post a new hub. I think problem varies from person to person here.
Larry I havent' marked them ignored!
All i did was try to fix them by reentering them as the links are perfectly fine...
If my settings are set to ignore they shouldn't be as I want to know about issues...
I looked at all your hubs that have been flagged as broken you and I noticed that in each case, the modification date had been updated recently.
Is it possible that you might have temporarily unpublished your hub while the link checker was running?
No I don't unpublish. I just edited the links.
To be clear, I didn't mean that the articles with the links had been modified.
I meant that the articles that were being linked to had been modified.
For example, I see that "Green Christmas Trees - EcoFriendly Christmas Tree Choices" was modified on Nov 18 and "Green Christmas Lights - for a Green Environmentally Friendly Christmas" was modified on Nov 17, etc.
Is it possible that the links that are marked as bad were unpublished at one point?

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 submitted a hub about the difference between assertive and aggressive women called "She's such a Bitch: So Why Does He Love Her?" and I can't figure out exactly what's blocking it from publication.The bots flagged it as possibly containing inappropriate content, and sent it for a...

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...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

"A potentially broken link has been detected in this Hub."Has anyone else had this flag and after checking the links, there was nothing wrong?
by Brian Leekley 4 years ago
If this is not the correct place to ask my questions, please let me know where to go on HubPages, or if I should send an email to the people running HubPages.A few months ago an expert hubber with lots of experience and success for a time offered free critiques of hubs in one of the forums. I asked...
