We just rolled out an exciting new feature on HubPages: the customizable home page. You can now pick and choose from an array of configurable widgets that should allow you to put all the things you are interested in keeping track of on HubPages together in one place.
To check it out just sign in, go to the homepage, and then select the "customizable home page" in the upper right hand corner. A default layout will be created based on what we know about you, but the real power comes adding, configuring, and positioning the widgets as you like. If you don't like the new page, you can always switch back to the traditional home page.
We also deployed some other minor changes with this release. As usual, please let us know if run into any new problems with the site.
I have a comment. Is there any way that when we are on our home page, browsing the forums & we find a thread we want to read, we click it and it could open up in a different window? Then we'd have our home page open & the forum open at the same time to toggle back and forth.
Learn about homepage links don't work, or are they not supposed to.
Also, I'm not sure I like how it looks unfinished. May just stick with the regular home page; it's easier on the eyes to look at. After fiddling with it for a second, and moving stuff around, I thought I was still in edit mode.
I'm not really sure what could be said. I've been using it throughout the day trying to just test it out. It still looks like it would be in edit mode to me. I'm not sure... Just maybe some color or something. The color from the original homepage was pleasing to the eye. The customizable one is gray and white with links. The only color is the triangle in the hubpages logo and my picture. Just throwing that idea out there.
I love the idea of the customizable homepage, it's just bland. (but I guess it matches the airy look of the hubs and whatnot... I still feel the last layout change has left the look airy with a lot of space)
Is there a widget to show hubbers that you're a fan of who have recently published hubs? That was probably one of my favorite features of the other homepage.
