For the past two days I have be unable to share hubs on HubPages. All other share buttons are working fine. I do not repeatedly click the share button. Normally, by the count of seven, the button will turn green and it has been shared. Now, nothing at all happens. Has anyone else been able to share on HubPages recently?
I always knew that but it did not work today, I counted to 10 and nothing happened. I did find out something wierd though. It is not useful but it is strange. It works on old Hubs (counting to 3), but not on recent ones.
I have been trying to share and today there were quite a few comments in which people told me they were h+ ing my hubs. If H+ doesn't work we all probably lost views we would have otherwise gotten. That hurts.
The share button was not working, then it was working, and now it is not working again. So frustrating and what a waste of time. I let it sit for 5 minutes and then tried again without success. I'll keep trying every five minutes. e
I just checked and was able to share a Hub. When I clicked the H+ button, the dialog opened almost immediately and then there was a 2 second delay from when I clicked to share it and it showing as such.
Matthew - I just now tried to share a hub & nothing happened - I not only gave it plenty of time, I got up, left the computer, got something from the kitchen, came back & still no results. The button did 'click' and register that I'd tried to share, but it didn't follow through.
This was on Chrome. I'll try some others. My macbook is up-to-date, btw.
I just tested it on Safari and Firefox (already had a fail on Chrome). None of the share buttons worked for me. All three showed the brief 'blip' confirming I'd pressed the button, but none of them processed it and confirmed. I waited through several brief TV commercials each on Safari & Firefox, and had actually left the room for a bit on Chrome. No results.
None of them ever showed the share was processed & executed.
I have been in communication with our engineering team. There is currently an issue that mostly affects authors with many followers. This is having an impact on the sharing buttons and in some cases means that the button is not working properly.
Thanks Marcy for taking the day shift here LOL... I work in the city with an hour commute during the week and I just arrived home and tried to share a hub AND IT WORKED!!!! HALLELUJER AS MADEA WOULD SAY LOL!
Nope. When I try nothing happens and a lot of people have been bringing it up too that either it doesn't work, or they are seeing shared items pop up multiple times on their feed. It must be low on the priority list I guess. Instead, I've just been sharing other hubs to social media instead.
Thank you so much, Christin. I thought it was just my computer. That is what I have been doing, just sharing others' hubs everywhere else. When a read a good hub, I always like to share with my followers to show support. I think you are right about it not being high on the HP priority list. I think I saw another forum about other technical issues with the site. So they must be scrambling with those other issues.
Hi Mary, me too, as it helps with views from the outside world. I just like to be supportive however I can. At least they are working on speeding it up, although it seems it is not working at all. It always has been a bit slow but now ...
Hi Keisha, sharing your own hubs on HP is, which I do not do, but it is fine to share others' hubs as that is what the button is for. However, I do see from time-to-time hubbers sharing their own hubs which is fine as long as you do not do it often. I just feel a bit strange sharing my own hubs on HP.
Hi Kevin (The Examiner-1), yes, it is just flat-out not working. They said they are trying to speed it up, but I think it is not working at all. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon. For a while it was really slow, but now it seems it just does not share.
Hmm, I will try it today. Thanks for letting us know, Glimmer Twin Fan. It has been taking a long time but would eventually share, but for the past two days, it would not share at all. They have been working on it, so maybe it is good to go now, hopefully.
Hi Kevin, Thank you for the update. Hmm that is odd for it to work on one and not the other. I will go back over my activity and try to share some of those I was unable to share the other day and see what happens.
In our hubfeeds, there's a 'share' button under the hub for sharing hubs with our followers. Are you okay with using this button to share your own hubs with your followers or are you too modest? Is it appropriate to do...
I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a...
Dear Precious Followers,I have, what some of you might see as a stupid question, but I need to ask it anyway.When I am ready to hit the "publish now" button on a finished hub, and I hit the "White H on...
