I have what appears to be way too many broken links - the links are to my own hubs. Testing the links, I see that the little link thingy on the accounts page seems to be off, as those hubs are still there. Anyone else have this problem?
I clicked the button for a retest.
I saw that the other day on a hub that was still published. I clicked the link in my hub. Then signed out and back in again. When I came back, the broken link icon was gone.
Hmmm, I have retested all yet still get more warnings for broken links to my own still published hubs.
Report this in that section.. I did see someone other hubber reporting this problem.. I had it for a while but it quickly disappeared.. This looks like a bug that needs fixing..
Take a look at this thread.. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/94674
You can try retesting the links on this page:
Jason--I just used that to check on the 11 supposedly broken links that are showing up...all are good links.
Why do they keep showing up as broken?
It's because, for whatever reason, when our broken link checker (which runs 1-2 times per day) checked those links, they were broken. If the links are fine now, then it means that the supposed broken link was only broken temporarily.
Thank you Jason.
These have been showing up broken for days now, though, and I still have them showing up that way. I checked them again, and they are still fine.
How about you, Delores? Have yours cleared up yet?
Hmmm...well, I've reported this a while back because many people have noticed this. Hopefully engineering will have a look to see if they can replicate the problem.
I am also getting broken link notices - but can find no broken link -
Me too. I was checking the links like crazy but most of them were to my own hubs. No 404 or anything just the warning. All links were fine but one.
All the "broken" links I have are other hubs of mine, too. Most are part of a pet shop series I wrote, and the majority are links to just one particular hub.
I've had these hubs up for a long time, and have never had any problems like this before!

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...

I had six hubs showing broken links yesterday. I corrected all of them, but two are still showing the broken link icon. And, the edit date hasn't updated. Anyone else seeing this?

Over the last few days I have had a few hubs show up with "broken links"> when I go to those links however they work just fine. Today, my Twitter profile link showed up as broken and it works fine. I tried removing it and adding it back in and it comes up broken again.Any ideas? Thanks

Today I have had several alerts for broken links in my hubs that turned out to be videos and all were actually working when I tried playing them,

I noticed today that I've got several broken link icons on a few different hubs. The links go to hubs of mine that are live. I went in earlier today and tested the links and they tested fine but still show as broken. Has anyone experienced this before? If so, what advice do you have on what to do?
