The New Hubpages Profiles

Beautiful! is the word for our new hubpages profiles

The hubpages staff are always loading their digital guns, with many awesome new looks for our truly cool hubpages writers network, but this time they've truly out done themselves. With ravishing new looks, functionality and awesomely stunning attractive appeal; our new profiles are here to entice the eyes of our viewers and are here to stay folks. This article is going to provide some quick helpful tips to help people make the transition from the old profile, to the new one.


You can upgrade the new profile from any hubber's new profile, since mine is done already it will provide the upgrading option for you if you want to make it easier. You can use the link provided below to get there.

New Hubpages Profile Upgrading Tips

  • All you need to do is go to anyone's new profile to get this new upgrade.
  • You will see an option for making the upgrade, click it to begin.
  • Click Upgrade profile.
  • If you haven't located a new hubpages profile yet, go to my profile here or a Hubpages Elite or Hubpages Staff profile that made the switch already to locate the upgrade option.
  • Once you've located it again follow the initial procedure here.
  • After clicking upgrade it will take you to the new hubpages profile editor.
  • There's an option to set the type of background you would like to display for your new hubpages profile, featuring 4 pre-made backgrounds, and the choice of a custom one you may add yourself. (There's a tile option to stack the image as well)


Here's how the hubpages profile editor looks for the background

The 5th image towards the right above, is actually where you can either drag and drop an image file, to add your new custom background, or you can click on the (Green Box) below it, to add one from your computing devices image files, or desktop file

More additional related useful info

  • This new profile editor section allows you to edit the about bio section, after saving it as well, so don't worry if you made any errors the first time.
  • You can submit outbound links to Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Google Plus, and Facebook.
  • Make sure to have an account with these other social profiles or attempts to create links to them will not work effectively, and will only post a link to the actual network itself.
  • If you made it there to the new editor for your profile, you should notice in the about area (titled Bio), you can no longer create links to it, and so you are only allowed a single link to be placed onto your new profile from a personal website, or blog.
  • Make sure to word this new Bio info, so that people can learn of you as a writer here on hubpages, and be creative with it, you can leave it the way it was as well.
  • When filling out the new Bio area, be sure to remove all erroneous info, such as links once added to your old profile, and other things not pertinent.

Use link up above that states Hubpages Staff to get there

  • Follow all the procedural steps already mentioned to make the complete upgrade of your hubpages profile, and keep in mind, that you will not be able to go back to the old one, if the question comes to mind.
  • So be certain your ready to make the switch before clicking save there.
  • The only thing your losing is all the links you've posted onto your old hubpages profile, and that is definitely worth sacrificing to get the stunning new profile look, and full functionality, which is a huge gain!




This is the cool new Hubpages profile editor

As I stated previously, to access this page, all you need to do is click the upgrade button, which may only be found on a fellow hubbers new hubpages profile, that they have already upgraded to. This image is just a screen shot of how it looks.

Cool additions to this awesome new Profile

  • Another cool addition which isn't visible to your followers and visitors, is you can black list up to 3 hubbers, that you choose not to communicate with, or them not to be located from off of your new profile I do believe, and this is also a new option available that wasn't in the old hubpages profile.
  • The option to add your most favorite featured hubs is truly awesome, and you can add many, I'm not sure though if they limited it to a certain amount, but it starts off with 3 to begin with, and then more will appear if you choose to feature many more then 3 of your hottest hubs.
  • You have an option of controlling who see's your hubpages profile accolades & praise that you received for your hubs, and via fan mail.



"Thanks Hubpages Staff for this awesome new upgrade, its sensational".




Thanks to hubpages we all can fly high on the digital clouds

Hi CloudExplorer, well, I wanted to go ahead and switch, so I went to your Hub Profile Page and I did not see a green upgrade button. I saw a green content and your name highlighted in green. Duh. I told you I would have to come back to you, and here I am. In His Love, Faith Reaper

@Faith Reaper, yeah I may have made an error, bece I cannot actually go back to see what it looked like, LOL.

It was one of those human errors we all do from time to time, you know how it is with these digital things today, but I'm sure everyone figured it all out anyhow, Hah!

@garage-remotes, You need to ask the hubpages staff that one bro, cause I have no clue, I'm just a messenger, and normal hubber like yourself. Good luck on it all though.

It only gives me a choice of 5 hubs to choose from for my featured hub. I want to use two that are not available in the options. Have you any idea why this is? Thanks, Tara.


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@Peanutritious, I think it has to do a great deal with the actual number of hubs you have, give it some time and try it as soon as you increase you total number of hubs, is my best guess.

Thank you for giving my hub here a good read, and for sharing as well.


Peanutritious profile image

Peanutritious 4 years ago from Cheshire, UK

Thanks for your response. I have 11 hubs so far and will keep checking and writing more! Thanks for such an informative hub!

I love the new look and options! I have to play around with it more. Don't think I'm capable of updating my profile on my phone, probably needs to be on a computer. I'll play around with it more, but this step by step hub will definitely come in handy!


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@FreezeFrame34, yeah the new profiles are stunning indeed, hey thanks for checking out my hub here and for the cool comment, oh and its nice to meet you here on hubpages.


rgmg50 4 years ago

Very useful hub. I joined HubPages recently, so either I was too busy finding my feet to notice the change-over or when I joined it was with the new hubpages profile. To me this hub is very useful, because I can double check to see whether I am using everything available to us. Thank you.


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@rgmg50, your very much welcome, I am so glad that you found this hub to be of use to you. It's tough to get the full grasp of everything as soon as a person either joins a network online, or when things get changed around as hubpages has been undergoing for quite some time now.

So I fully understand your difficulties, this is why its imperative to try and help folks, and I been writing for hubpages full time, and so its much easier for me to do so today.

Thanks for taking the time to read my hubs, and as I said in my other one you read, welcome to hubpages. You will find that there are many cool folks here on hubpages, and I'm sure you will have a wonderful time here writing, and meeting awesome people. Enjoy!
