I am having trouble with Hub Pages apparently 'crashing' in the middle of doing something, usually saving a capsule, or hitting the 'back' button to go to another page--even hitting the HP main page icon at upper left. It also sometimes happens upon hitting the refresh button or F5 key.
It will either stay stuck on "working" or else, after a delay of at least 45 seconds, suddenly Google comes up and says, "Oops! We cannot connect to Hub Pages...try again later."
This is regardless of which browser I happen to be using at the time. My cache is set to clear automatically every night when I shut down my machine.
It usually is between 10 and as long as 15 or 20 minutes before I can again re-connect to HP and sign back in.
What the hey????
Driving me crazy. I have suddenly got the urge to pump out some hubs and it is taking forever to do anything at all.
This happened to me too. I'm back in now but the links to other pages work only very slowly. It's not my system as I can rapidly access any other website.
Could it have something to do with the new profile page?
I am having trouble with capsules not working correctly; specifically ebay and Amazon and after that happened, my browser crashed.
Supposedly, HP "works best with Firefox." However, my Firefox is no longer working..it won't even boot up and go online!
You may want to remove (uninstall) Firefox and then download and install the current version.
Since HP came back online, I've had no problems; even when I just now tweaked a hub. Maybe it's just because I'm "down the street" from them, as opposed to half-way around the world. Who knows? Pretty much everything is a mystery to me these days.
My "down the street" is about 60 miles away on the other side of the San Francisco Bay....
I'm still having troubles--S-L-O-W- loading of comments made.. "working..." for freaking ever... and just now, a "502 error" (whatever THAT is) on the notifications tab.....
::: sigh ::: AND...yet another crash..."oops..Google cannot connect..yadda, yadda..." while trying to post this very reply!!
I'm a bit confused.
You are getting a message that says "Google cannot connect", but it seems you are using Internet Explorer.
Where exactly are you seeing that message?
I'm confused by it as well, Matthew. I see that error message in the middle of a blank page, when the crash happens. You are right; I am using IE, so why an error message comes up referencing Google is beyond me!
I just noticed that other posters here are also just "down the street". A mystery indeed...
Well, well. I think I just spotted a new profile page fix. My guess is that HP was doing an update.
I've been unable to sign on to Hub Pages a couple of times tonight. Got a 'Down for Maintenance' message a few minutes ago. Earlier just couldn't connect.
I haven't had a problem as yet, but noticed that I am not getting notifications on my email. I already addressed this in forum..sorry being redundant. It just seems like there are some glitches.

Don't know if this is the correct term, but my back button, arrow thingy, doesn't seem to be working for question/answer. It's also refused to work on a hub just now. It seems to work fine everywhere else. Have tried...

I have been unable to see the user-created videos on hubs. All I see in place of the video is a big blank area.Here is an example. I know that this hub starts with a user-created music video, but I'm just...

My Squidoo lenses were moved over to HubPages and I honestly had no idea what to expect. I have no idea where to start. I tried editing one of my pages by adding a summary and deleting affiliate links. ...
