The old logged-in page had a section that highlighted hubs that have been published in the last 48 hours by hubbers that I follow. The new page, even with its filters, doesn't display them as effectively.
My suggestion would be to make use of the right column that displays our profile, accolades, and hubbers that we follow. Since this column doesn't display nearly as much data as the feed, it would be the perfect place to shoehorn in the old "new hubs by favorite hubbers".
I totally AGREE. I posted this similar comment under the other forum post introducing the new Home Page.
I like reading my fav. hubbers first. It is difficult to see whether one my favorites published recently without going out to their profile.
Exactly. I can't really find much fault with the new homepage other than the absence of the favorite writers' new hubs.
I know you can change the filter to show just the people I'm following, but I also like to check out hubs published under my favorite topics regardless of who wrote them.
One of the moderators posted that there are plenty of modifications and new features being developed for the homepage. I'm hoping that this will be one of the priorities.
Have you tried going to filters, then edit, then hubs and choosing what you want displayed?
I have played around with the filters, but the problem is that I'm following several topics that receive new published hubs every few minutes. Unless I constantly swap back and forth with the filters, it is too easy to lose the people I'm following in the flood of new hubs.
This is true mskills. I've done the same. I follow a lot of topics but my followers are varied and diversified. I chose to follow them because I like what they write and how they write.
Although I like reading new hubs, I still want to see those favorites first. It's been difficult to scroll through all the pages to find the hubber who published recently.
By filtering the hubbers listing I still don't see their latest hub. I've had to go into my profile page under Hubbers I follow, pull up the list and sort it by published articles. To me that defeats the purpose.
Hopefully, the Home Page update will incorporate your idea.

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're...

I have noticed that, when signed out, there is a new homepage. I am not sure whether the new format is helpful. There are some great hubbers featured making statements on how much they earn from this site,...

Dear Hubbers. I've recently noticed so many changes on Hubpages. I had no internet for a week and upon my return things look so different. I like the cleaner white pages with the underline beneath the titles. The column...

I am fairly new here, but what I've learned is that most people follow to get followers. (I was that person). What I discovered was that, if I follow you I am required to read your hubs when published.My suggestion;...
