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.
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.

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?

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...

Matthew, I got a broken link icon for this hub. When I put it in edit mode, nothing is highlighted. I deleted one pic I thought it might be and two promotional comments with a website.com. It's still saying that the broken link is there but I can't find it. Please check,...
