Cannot Post a Hub

    Hi, I'm new to hubpages, and I am trying to create the first hub. I have my profile and account all set up, but whenever I fill out the new hub form and press submit, it erases all my work. I can't get any further. Any help?

    Thx

    I'm having problems working on a new hub I created as well.  It seems to be an issue with any link that uses javascript or perhaps AJAX to dynamically create windows, such as the Edit buttons on capsules.

    For now you'll probably just have to sit tight; I'm sure someone at HubPages is working on getting it fixed as we speak.

    For example, clicking the small "reply" button underneath each of these comments does nothing but bring the focus to the top of the page and add a "#" character to the end of the current URL.  On the other hand, clicking the "Post a reply" button on the bottom right, which opens a new page, works correctly.

    If you've got some good hubbage floating around in your mind, I'd recommend writing it down in Word or elsewhere so you don't lose the train of thought.  You can then post it to a new hub when this issue has been fixed.

      What browser are you using?  I've tried to reproduce the problem in IE8, Firefox, and Chrome so far without any luck.  One potential solution, although it shouldn't be required, is to hold down shift and refresh the page (which will force your browser to reload any cached files referenced on the page).

      Exactly what mine is doing, except on the Hub Traffic Statistics page.
      I'm using Firefox 3.6.4 and Windows 7

        Could one of you that is having trouble, try visiting each of these URLs (using chrome or firefox)?  All I can think of now is that you may be behind a caching proxy that has cached invalid or empty versions of these essential hubpages javascript files:

        http://x.hubpages.com/s/us16305.js
        http://x.hubpages.com/s/js16305.js
        http://hubpages.com/s/editor16305.js

        All that I want to know is that each of these returns something other than an empty page (it will look like jibberish).  If it does return an empty page, refreshing that particular url may solve the problem ...

          Paul, i had an issue around 3pm EST with the javascript in both Safari & Flock viewing latest hubs and editing my hubs -even after cleaning out the cache.   Everything seems fine now. Thanks.

    I'm using Chrome, and I also experienced the problem in Firefox.  I'll give it another try to see if it has suddenly been fixed.  wink

    The shift-refresh did not solve the problem, unfortunately.  The issue persists.  I imagine there is some rogue character hiding in the javascript/AJAX code, wreaking havoc as diligent HubPages coders try to find it.

    I've tried the fix, and switched between Firefox and Safari.  Still cannot edit my hubs.  Working on saving to word....

    No one can at the moment. They are looking into it though.

    Shift-refresh worked this time.

    Hold shift, then right-click and choose whichever refresh option your browser displays (for example, Google Chrome displays the option "Reload").  I tried holding shift and just pressing F5 and it didn't work, but using the right click method resulted in success.

    Something is up with hubpages, this has been on-going for at least 24 hours, and it has been intermittent with different problems for different users.  Using other browsers and refreshing will not cure the problems until they are fixed.  Right now it is a wait and be patient game.

    Wait and be patient... and help them diagnose the problem.
