So, there's this 'sort of new' utility labeled "graph" at the top of the 'my account' page where all our hubs are listed.
I tried it out the first time I saw it, and it was rather interesting. However, that is the only time it ever worked. Now, it does not load, and just sits there with the "working" icon spinning its little wheel.
It does not matter which browser I'm using--the graph will not load.
Is this another "known issue?" I did not see it in the list....
That was the graph that used to be labelled "stats" on the old profile.
Assume you've tried different browsers etc?
A slow internet connection does that to me at times.
We have "Comcast," (aka, "Crumb-cast or "Dumb-cast"), and their "x-finity" so-called blazing speed as advertised....all I have to say about that ad is, "How can I tell???
If you do a Google search for "bandwidth test" you should find some options with which to check the speed of your connection.
Here is one I have used in the past:
Just wanted to let everyone know I'm going to do some testing and see if I can compile enough info to send this to engineering.
Thanks for all the details from everybody!
Okay. Just did my testing and I am at a loss.
I tested in all the following browser/OS combinations and the graph loaded almost immediately for me in all of them.
Firefox 15.01 in OS X 10.7.4
Chrome 21.0.1180.89 in OS X 10.7.4
Safari 6.0 (7536.25) in OS X 10.7.4
Chrome 21.0.1180.89 in Windows 7
Chrome 22 beta in Windows 7
Safari 5.1.7 (7534.57.2) in Windows 7
Firefox 15.01 in Windows 7
Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421 in Windows 7
Chrome OS Version 22.0.1229.33 beta
Is the issue perhaps related to the very FIRST time the graph is viewed?
Ok--the first thing I will admit is to NOT being a computer techie or geek at any level...but, I am wondering, if this is a proximity issue. Could it be you are seeing no problems because you are right there in the same building, and the signal hasn't far to travel? Maybe pull out a laptop, and drive across the Bay or up to Sacramento for your test....??
Just a guess--like I said, I don't know the tech side of things...
I am unable to use the graph/stats feature on Firefox 16 (beta), nor was I able to use it with Firefox 15.
If I try to open the graph, FF crashes immediately and totally (i.e. disappears off the screen).
I did report this before in this forum section.
Since my current version of Firefox is otherwise very stable and does not hog memory as previous versions did, I am not willing to downgrade to a previous version. I'll just do without the stats.
I just recently had to uninstall/re-install Firefox, as it had completely stopped working--would not even load. So I presume I have the latest version at this point....However, most of the time I'm on IE, as I find Firefox to be a memory hog and a slow loading program. In the time I can click on my mail icon from my desktop, be online and open my mailbox with IE, Firefox is still loading...and "thinking." Hub Pages claims to be "optimized" for FF, but I sure can't see any advantage.
Most browsers are a cache hog rather than a RAM memory hog.
With cache being used for browsers this means when one visits a web page for the first time it takes a while to load. From the second time and onwards you visit that same page, your browser will only update new elements if any, that are on that web page. Any unchanged elements will be taken from the cache.
The issue here is since the cache is on your hard drive, it is much slower to access than RAM. Hence accessing some websites can seem slow at times.
Another issue us that the graph part of HubPages uses Adobe Flash and if it's not up to date, it will not show properly on most browsers.
The web cache on your browser will also store old data even when one updates Flash, a new browser, add-ons etc. So this make the web experience crappy.
So, the solution is
Update your browser
Empty your web browser cache
Restart your computer
Get back to enjoying the web experience.
@Kangaroo_Jase Good general tips.
Clearing the cache and restarting are always good places to start, even after doing an upgrade.
Is anyone else still seeing this issue?
If so, please let me know the OS (including service pack number if XP) and browser name and version.
Then I can try to reproduce the issue and send it to our engineering team.
It finally loaded on IE8. but it took nearly 20 seconds--much slower than the first time I saw the utility in place.
I am using XP, but I don't know the service pack number, or how to find it. I do know that my husband has my computer set for automatic updates, and I also believe it is set to auto-clear the cache when shutting down.
(Slightly off-topic of my original query, but I notice it's only showing up through the end of July...is that a normal lag time?)
I just checked the graph on a Mac running OS 10.7.4
Firefox 14.0.1 - stats graph loaded after just a few seconds.
Safari 6 - loaded after about 15 seconds
It doesn't load for me. Surely it could be made a little more tolerant to browser and connection type? Some of us have what we have, and it is a few years old--not from the age of the dinosaurs.

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?
by Ben Guinter3 years ago
For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!

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...

Boy, it took me several hours to write one hub today. The edit and save-edit functions have been a pain in my rump all day. I can't figure out any particular pattern, just that a lot of times when I go to...
