Who Knew the New HubPages Profile Page Would be Such a Big Decision?!

Honestly, my first thought about getting a new profile page was, “Oh great.” I had just learned a couple of bits of info on how to improve every single one of my hubs and I hadn’t nearly finished taking care of that when this came up.

Deciding to go ahead and take the plunge wasn’t easy even though my understanding is that everyone will be switched over eventually. I’ve learned, though, that problems have a way of taking on a life of their own if I procrastinate.

I knew I should take the first opportunity I had to make this switch on my terms, but I needed more information than I was finding. A few people had written about issues, but I wasn't seeing answers to my questions.

The only thing to do was take a chance and click to the upgrade page so I could look at the options. If there was no going back after that click I would just try to sweep up the dust and arrange the furniture on my new HubPages profile page to the best of my ability.


Some New Profile Page Features I Like

It was a relief to find that I could click the upgrade button, take a look around, then back out of it to ponder the features for a while. That gave me a chance to look at some already upgraded profiles with a better understanding of the what/why behind their new look.

The chance to choose favorite hubs to be highlighted in the scrolling capsule lets me choose what I like best from my work and/or the hubs that readers have liked best. The “Featured Hub” section is a home run as far as I’m concerned.

When “Hubs” is selected in the gray bar below the scrolling capsule, I love that on the right side there is a “Show” button that allows readers to select hub topics. They can see my Arts and Design hubs, or Recipes, or Politics and Social Issues hubs all together rather than spread throughout all of my work from/across other pages.

Because I’ve been working on my images I like the option to let readers see the slide show of them all by clicking on “Recent Images” on the right of the scrolling hubs. I’m hoping to continue upgrading my photos and feel that this feature could be a real benefit to hub activity since the top bar of slide show photos sends a viewer to the hub.

As I looked over a few profiles that were already updated with the new profile page designs I realized that I wanted to give some real thought to this option. I love, love, love that I can create a design to use as my profile page background.


Weaknesses that Give Me Pause For Thought

I’m not so sure about the “Others you might like...” because it gives the impression that I am personally recommending the authors. Most of the time that will be fine, but once in a while, maybe not so much. I wish the capsule had a title that said, “HubPages thinks you might like...”

The pale gray text font is not a keeper, though I know I may well have to do so. It does not encourage me to go ahead and click the “more” so I can read the rest of the profile. I suppose the important thing to remember is that the text in the hubs themselves is not washed out.

Having to take time to rework my profile’s text wasn’t so bad since it’s a good thing to do that once in a while, but where we were once encouraged to put links in it, now we have to take them out. Still, my main question is about the “Sign up with HP” referral/tracker/link. Isn't it supposed to be on the profile page?

Something seems undone about that, not just unclear. I’ll have to take some time to read up on this question, that is unless one of my readers knows the facts on this issue and shares the info in the comments below. Thanks ahead of time if that’s you!

My HubScore dropped 5 points the instant I made my change over and it is struggling to go back up. What does that mean in the grand scheme of things? I’ve no idea, but that’s the story and I’m afraid I have to stick to it for now.

As well, all of my hubs that were steadily in the 90s are suddenly dropping into the 80s. Ghrmph--but I may have more news on that at a later date. I’ve been working on supposedly improving them so it may be coincidence. Time will tell.

If anyone out there has input about the new profile pages please feel free to leave a comment with the information. Don't hesitate, please--explanations would be much appreciated!


The New Profile Page Background Feature

At last, we come to the happiest part of the new profile page. Getting to choose and/or create a background design for my profile page is the highlight of this whole deal for me--well, that and the fact that I get to write this hub.

On my first sneak peek of the options I was surprised at how simple the changes were to make. I wondered if my first choice for a background would be permanent but decided it surely wouldn’t be, would it? Nope.

That was good because I wanted to fiddle around with some designs. I backed out of the whole page and spent some more time looking over new profile pages that hubbers were using. I returned to a few I liked in my first search and found a few more.

It’s not like there’s a list out there. Finding them at that point was a search mission. By the time I hit the publish button on this hub there will be more to look at. Anyway, my preference soon became apparent, the dark backgrounds seemed to be the most useful.

After thinking through what was attractive to my eye, I began pondering the designs that drew my eyes away from the text and photos of the profile page, and which ones helped me focus on the reason for being there.

While the background should be pleasing it certainly should not distract a reader by competing with the profile info in any way. It is a b-a-c-k-g-r-o-u-n-d image and I wanted mine to make the profile page pop out.

In all my fiddling I could not figure out how to undo the “Tile” check box on the bottom left-hand corner of the choose-a-background capsule. That was frustrating until I realized that Miss Olive’s (and a few other sharpie hubbers) was in that tile format.

If they couldn’t undo it I knew I would not be able to. On top of that, she had somehow posted a tile larger than any I could produce. Is it the computer she has (MacBook Pro?) or a camera (Mega$ FocusSharp?) or simply her wide expanse of knowledge?

I don’t know, but back to the drawing board I went. I noticed that Marye Audet has an example of an all over print that does not compete with the main reason for being there. It is small enough not to overpower, she doesn’t have too many colors going on, and she figured out how to work her design around the tile problem.

However, I did see a design of tiny flowers with a multitude of colors that worked well though it was very busy. I also saw a blue/purple starry night sky that was really nice. The small scale balanced out the busy-ness of these designs.

Working with the graphics on your computer is a learning experience that can be frustrating unless you tell yourself “It’s just a game” until you get some experience under your belt. If you don’t want to take the time to go through that right now you could just use a nice safe solid background until you can get back to it.

I’m restraining myself from mentioning too many specific examples because the backgrounds are changeable. I changed mine up about a dozen times the first day and a few more times before I settled on a design--for now.

It’s fun to think about how these backgrounds could change with the seasons, but I wanted one for all seasons in case I couldn’t get around to switching them out at the right time--a likely scenario the way life goes! Hey, maybe the powers that be will put an auto-switch option up for us. :)

Examples of My Fiddling Around with Designs

Shall we wind this up with some examples of the profile page background designs I tried out? Take a look because there will be a test at the end of this capsule. ;) Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments.

Starting with the first, you’ll see that my current design has a very dark green background with a sage-ish green design under the letters of my name on the left side. As I said before, I think the dark background makes the profile info jump out.

Oh yes--don't forget to check out my new HubPages profile page! See my latest design in action!

RTalloni, you are right. I could not figure out how to get rid of the 'tile' box. LOL I figured it was a temporary glitch. I do hope HP upgrades that little box as an option. I do like your profile page very much. It is very nice and classy. Not distracting. I'm still planning to alter mine if the tile box option does not get resolved. Besides, I do think mine may be too busy and distracting. By the way, I made it with a 'keynote' slide and saved it as a picture. Yes, it is on a MAC. You can do the same in Windows with Power Point and simply save the slide as a photo. Interesting hub and thank you for including me.

Before I read this I would have said I am not a fan of the new profile because it is too distracting and difficult to find an organized list of the hubs published by the author. I now understand that with the many options the profile can still be done in a way that allows the focus to remain on the list of hubs which is much more helpful. I am still in the process of creating my own profile and am putting some thought into it because I know in many cases the profile is the first impression. Thanks for the useful information. Voted up and shared!

Once I realized that you had not figured out how to bypass that tile box I knew I might as well give up. :) (For the time being, anyway.)

Thanks much for your input re my profile page. Yours is not distracting. We liked it a lot at our house--found it inspiring, obviously. Thanks for sharing how you made it. I created mine on a mac in pages, then used screen shots.

Here's to future designs! :) Thanks for stopping by with your comment.

missolive 4 years ago from Texas

Thank you. Screenshots of Pages. How clever! I noticed that if we make our own background we need to leave about 1/2 inch of space at the top and about 1 inch at the bottom. Otherwise it gets cut-off when loaded. I literally opened both screens and placed them side by side to get the right fit. Sort of like digital sewing. :)

I really like your new profile and this hub has been very helpful. I started to do mine last night, but then I read once you set this up you can't change it. So, I thought if I don't like the background I will be stuck with it. I have written almost 400 hubs and it is hard to choose. Sometime some are more popular than others, particularly the medical ones. Then, I also questioned the black list. I like the work of some people better than others, but I don't think I want to put anyone on a black list. I guess I am making too much of this, but I deleted what I had started to think about it some more. I appreciate you information and some of these comments are helpful also.

Rtalloni, I am going to look into this tomorrow. Thanks for posting from your experience the ins and outs on the new look. I feel a little better after reading your advice, still have to digest the changes, but it's something we just have to jump in and do. Glad to hear that we can back out and put on holds if needed.

RTalloni 4 years ago from the short journey Author

Pamela99:

Thanks very much!

It is true that there's no going back once the change is made, but it is nice that we have a chance to look at the options and poke around before we make our decisions.

It's also nice that we can change the scrolling hubs if we want to. I've already done that as I wanted to rearrange them so that the first hub readers see is a very popular hub.

I just ignored the black list capsule. We might be glad it's there at some point, but it doesn't have to be used.

I appreciate all your input and am looking forward to seeing your new background design. :)

Movie Master:

When I first saw your comment here I went over to see your profile page, but I was on my iPad and decided to wait to reply until I came home to look at your design again. I wasn't quite sure of what I was seeing on that tiny screen.

Now that I've seen it on my desktop I have to say it is delightful. Haven't seen another one quite like it yet. So much color at such a size would normally overwhelm, but on my screen yours is like a very bright wash of colors. It made me smile and I have to guess that would be a real plus for a HubPages profile page. :)

Thanks kindly for letting me know that you like my design and that you found this hub helpful!

toknowinfo:

Sometimes the doing of a thing is the learning of it. However, it is difficult to want to learn about something but to not understand what either the details are or the picture is. The amount of baby steps it takes for some of us to understand what is involved with web writing can be overwhelming.

Just yesterday I was trying to learn more about using a new-t0-me machine (iPad) for HP writing and accidentally tapped two different ads on the hub I was working on--a huge no-no and I hope it is not an irreparable mistake.

The combination of the machine and the ins and outs of writing for HP could overwhelm, but I just need to breathe deep on both counts, continue taking baby steps, and see how it all works out.

I look forward to seeing your new profile page! Thanks much for taking the time to let me know this hub was helpful to you.

I think mine was like this from the start so i must have joined (very recently) after this had been rolled out but you know it was still very interesting reading about how you approached the issue and it seems in the long run it all turned out okay!

One of the reasons why in the end, after looking at several other possible platforms, I decided to start writing here, was the attractive and easy to navigate design. I don't know what it all looked like before, of course!

Bless you :)

RTalloni 3 years ago from the short journey Author

stuff4kids:

Thanks much for letting me know this was interesting to you even though you are a post new-profile-page member! I've enjoyed brightening up my profile page with seasonal designs.

Changes always create interesting responses within a group and HP is no different. I try to just take a deep breath and consider it a learning experience. I usually learn more than I expect from them.

This change to the look of individual profile pages was not a big one, actually, but anything that takes my mind off simply reading and writing chafes a bit and I see that the same is true for others to one degree or another.

I agree about the HubPages platform, though I have much to yet learn in order to have the sort of success that I can retire on. But I have even more that I want to write about--that's my real focus. Lots of projects on the table, but life sometimes gets in the way… :)

Could you please include the optimum background dimensions in your hub?


RTalloni profile image

RTalloni 2 years ago from the short journey Author

I work from a full page on a mac's pages, landscape mode. I suppose that would be considered an 8x10 paper or photo. The design elements's sizes always change depending on the font (if using one) and the sizing of any patterns used. Optimum is relative, as far as I can tell, but someone with more computer graphs savvy than I have may be able to tell you more.

I plan to return to using a font on my profile page background after the new year begins, unless a new unique idea hits me. It's difficult to tell what others see on their computer screens if they look at a profile page, but I enjoy working through ideas simply for a quick creative outlet.

Thanks much for stopping in with your question!
