We just deployed an update to the site.
The biggest change is the addition of the quiz capsule, and widget. It's easier to just see how it works than to explain, but basically it allows you to create trivia quizzes, quizzes that rank you on a single scale, and quizzes that classify you based on your answers. It can also be taken off of HubPages and placed as a widget on other sites.
The second change is that we've enabled eBay Partner Network domain verification, and as a result those of you that aren't already approved for ePN can once again apply using only your HubPages presence.
If you signed up for ePN prior to August 1st, you don't have to verify the HubPages domain. However, it won't hurt anything, so I'd go ahead and do it anyway. If you signed up for ePN August 1st or after, you must verify the hubpages.com domain.
Please note that ePN is still fairly picky in who they accept. If you are applying for the first time or again, please fill out the application completely and accurately and try and make a compelling case for how you will benefit eBay as an affiliate.
One other small change, you can now place a caption below a table when using the table capsule. You can also pick from a few different color schemes for you table.
As always, please let us know if you notice any problems with these new features, or the site in general.
omg thanks so much. I and many other newbies have been going crazy! I will just wait for ebay to do their thing. Thats a load off my mind. BTW...I sent you an email to ask if I could hub about this, not realizing you already did. Sorry
OK. They don't call me a dumb Swede for nothing. I still can't figure out if I'm supposed to load something into the base directory here, or if I'm to copy and paste stuff where ever... PLEASE help?
Thanks, i was struggling there for a while until i found your helpful link, the confirmation links from EBay confused the hell out me..
Once again thanks.
Thanx Paul for adding the quiz capsule. I am sure it will add a lot to the hubs.
Such a great team we have working to make us look so good thans Mr Paul and HP team!
Thanks. I just use quiz capsule in one hub just now. you may visit that by the following link:
IQ Test Questions and Answers: Some Job Aptitude Test or Aptitude Testing Questions and Answers
It really looks great. I really like it!! Thanks Paul and hubpages team.
I love the new quiz capsule. Fawntia and team, you did a great job!
I think it would be great to be able to see new quizzes created without having to read through a hub. Is there a way to put them in the category pages, or somewhere else so I can find them easily?
I also thought it would be cool to see related quizzes when you are finished with a quiz or when you are reading a hub about a certain topic. For example, there are related hubs to the side and there could be related quizzes, too.
Thanks again for all of your hard work! Robin
Robin, thanks for the suggestions. There are definitely a bunch of interesting things we can do with quizzes in the future.
I'm also glad to hear that you like the quiz capsule. I think it might be the biggest project I have worked on at HubPages so far, so I really hope that people have fun with it.
I also like the Quiz capsule. It was so easy to set up. Thanks!
yes the quiz i great but how do I upload the plain text into HP base directory for ebay?
The Quiz Capsule is a great idea. I love quizzes and will certainly use it. Thanks, guys
Are you having trouble setting up the quiz or is your question about eBay?
It's eBay that's giving me nightmares. I can't figure out what it is I'm supposed to do. When I follow the step by step posted here at the Hub, I keep running up against eBay's wall. They want me to post an epndomain.txt file in the base directory here (Hub). Nowhere onsite can I find out how to do that. Sorry if you're not the one I need to ask, but you're the one who answered my post. lol. Thank you, btw.
You might want to try doing the following to bypass the problem you're having.
1. Click on the "Domain Confirmation Page" link in the "Confirm your eBay Partner Network domains" email instructions you received from eBay. (It's Step 4.) A new window should open for the page.
2. About 2/3 of the way down the page, there should be a box that says "I cannot validate one or more of my domains". (It's right above the Update button.) Check it and a new text box will open directly under it.
3. In the new text box, enter the reason you can't validate your domain. (A brief explanation should do.) Then click the Update button that's located on the bottom right-hand side of the text box.
You should see a message saying something like "Your validation reason has been updated".
That's it. Now you'll have to wait to hear back from eBay -- and I have absolutely no idea what they'll say! I had a validation problem too and I'm waiting for them to answer ME.
I don't know if that helps you any but I tried!
I tried this too...haven't heard a word from them. I typed in the space that I didn't understand the directions. They'll probablly discard me for computer ingnorance, but man, I don't know how to do all that stuff. I can try, but to no avail. Then some people say this is easy, but it's not easy if you dont' know the terms like TXT file...what the..?? I didn't grow up with computers..they didnt' have em when I was in school so I'm self taught. I'm not giving up thought, until I get it right.
The link is in Paul's original post.
Hint: Open a new tab with email from eBay because you will have 90 seconds to confirm. You will probably have that email opened anyway in order to copy the unique identifier.
I have just confirmed domain and waiting for further info from ebay.
I can't even get Ebay to send me my lost password. They DO NOT respond no matter what I do and I also have been selling there for years.
I wish I had had the hub form to use when I had to write papers for school, It would have been so much nicer. Thanks!
So exacle how do you get bsck on to ebay to have them on your hubpges, when they gave you a freeky password to remember tat og deleted. All they tell me is to talk with a likve helper. \i type so slow cause of brain diorder, and thy think i am a 3 yr old hooken around.
Can any on help me get my ebay back on my hubpages sites

Just trying to rebuild my lifr after being victom in a rear end truck hitting me wreck at a stop light.
Thank you for the update, respectfully however I am done with ebay as a persona choice but the quiz sounds just great.
lray-the update was 7 months ago
spiderspun - I would be willing to try and help you, its easier than it seems
do you wanto email me, let me knw.
the last thing that has happened is, I got confused with this code sign up number they gave, discarded it. When I asked them to re issue it to me the said to go on a live chat with a ebay helper.
Problem is I have a head injury and can't follow quick enough or respond too slow or type os too much that they drop me of they think I am 3 year old.
Let me know how you can get me on my way.
Adsence was so easy and working, but id like ebay too
oh . another thing, when I go to the ebay site to see if I am indeed sighned up it tells me yes but I need yo implement that code.
I have a basic ebay account where i buy and ocassionally sell things, but that one has nothing to do with putting ebay with my adsence, be fine if I had the code. I know where it goes and all
Go here to get that funky code you missed
https://publisher.ebaypartnernetwork.co … Management
