I've only created a few hubs so far, but the process was made easier by the "Need Some Goals" module that appeared in the upper right. It was a great visual checklist and motivated me to get the hubs up to par.
Today, I went to create a new hub and... no goals toolbar. Nothing, nada, zip.
Did I do something wrong? Is there a way to get the goals checklist back?
I'm working on a hub right now and it's there. Double check yours again. If it still hasn't appeared, change your browser and see what happens. If it's still has not appeared than post it in the reporting technical problems forum.
Do you see the "Need Some Goals" title but not the actual progress bar? Or are both missing? If you see the title, try clicking on the little arrow immediately to the left of it. It's possible that the section got collapsed. If you don't see either then it sounds like it could be a bug (in which case please do as Cardisa suggested). Thanks!
I closed the duplicate forum thread, so here is my response from that thread.
Sorry you are having problems seeing the "Need some Goals" section in the HubTool.
I just checked using Firefox 27.01 in Windows and the "Need Some Goals" section is showing in the HubTool while I am editing a Hub.
There is a minor update for Firefox available, so I would suggest updating to that.
Here are some other general browser trouble shooting tips as well.

UPDATE: I just spoke to our engineering team and I found more information.
The "need the goals" box is not displayed for video Hubs or Hubs in the poetry category. It doesn't look like it applies currently to your Hub, but was it, perhaps, a video or poetry Hub at some point?
I had the same thing happen a few months ago. I like having the bar there so I can keep track of my word count. I was getting frustrated without it being there, so I saved the hub unpublished. When I clicked on the title and then the "edit" button, the hub opened and the tool bar was there. I don't know why that happened, but it did.
This issue does not appear to be "resolved"
My firefox is up to date
I have no extensions, plugins that would block the module
I have cleared history, cache + cookies
I have logged into my Hubpages from multiple computers using firefox, IE 9,10,11, Safari.
None of my hub are poetry or video hubs
The Goals toolbar is nowhere to be found. it is not collapsed, hidden, blocked or otherwise malfunctioning. It is simply not there
It appears as though the goals toolbar does not appear until I've added some content? Is this by design? I just started a new hub, no toolbar in sight. After adding approximately 100 word of text, *POOF*. It appeared. Very odd

Today no Google Ads and Banners are appearing on any of my hubs. The place for ads is just blank, is there any new amendment by hubpages or just a technical problem?Any one else facing the same?

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.

Just a question. Why is that when I try to search for my hubs using words in the title, that they do not come up when I search hub pages? I tried "Queer." and "Camping" and the ones I was looking for...

Internal sharing means internal traffic - and internal traffic doesn't make money the way external traffic does. There is already external traffic counts for tweets, pins and likes.

There are times where established hubs that have been active and have SERP rankings are moderated. Perhaps they were created before some of the stricter rules were implemented and are now only just being caught.I feel...
