    Am I the only one who sees this different look?  Is this a phone AP of some sort?

        Yep, it is.  I certainly won't be doing any tech articles if this is the format we have to use.

          Wow. Shoot! This has changed all of my tech hubs including one that is ranking high in Google! So no Google ads, my ad revenue just stops on one of my high traffic hubs..... I don't really like that at all!  I have worked hard to tweak that particular hub for the views and Google ad revenue.  Hmm... Oh well, I guess I can go back to eating pork and beans again, instead of hamburger steaks for dinner! smile

          Thanks for the heads up Randy, so that we had another post the blog link. I never would have known.

          Edit: Well there is two google ad blocks there, text only however. Maybe they will do as mentioned and add the others back in there.

          The ads haven't been 'added' yet.

            I wasn't referring to the lack of ads, Rochelle.  It looks like a blogger blog.

        Thank you!!

        I thought maybe I was trippin, or it was a glitch of some sort.

        Not particularly fond of the new look, and why would they take off the social media buttons?

        cheers,

        MD

    I went to the author's profile and clicked on a couple of her Hubs. Noticed there are no ads on any of them so is this maybe the design for someone who (for whatever reason) is not permitted/willing to show ads on their Hubs??

    Just a guess! smile

    Looks to me like somebody doesn't have enough to do so they are attempting to be creative by ruining what I thought was a wonderful format. Thought I'd give myself some time to get used to the new look of the fashion hubs, but I just can't. I don't know what they are thinking. Plus my traffic ain't so hot as it was.

    I had to fix a broken link and once done, I got that 'design' also lol I thought, whoa! HP, did something break somewhere? no idea, but I trust it will resolve itself even if it does look strange tongue lol

    AFK, alright, peeked at that link. Features will be slowly added back to measure the outcome and hopeful tweaks for a improved visit. cool wink

        I just found one of mine as well. I'm not positive yet, but I think I like it. We will see how it goes as they add stuff.

    I'm kind of thinking that HP really does know what they are doing. big_smile

    Pinterest is something like 95% women, so HP implemented the Pinterest look on the Fashion hubs. In retrospect this seems smart to me. Now HP is implementing a tech look on the tech hubs.

    I intend to just sit back and watch the (hopefully prosperous) show. big_smile

    Hmm... am I the only one who thinks they should really fill up that blank space to the right with related hubs, like on the fashion ones?

    Not really digging this layout, looks a little empty to me... and also, that background is erm, horrible. Just my thoughts. I dunno what it is, but it's just not settling with me... but I do think if this is the route each category is taking, then each category should have their own background. Perhaps the fashion and beauty articles would look nice with a red background? I'm sure the layout will look better with some color smile

    G plus sort of currently has a similarly large empty space too wink lol

    Has everyone noticed how the right side does not scroll? If that background characteristic could somehow be maintained with ads present, there would thus be ads that never go away during the reading of the entire article. Stay Tuned!!! big_smile

      TheMagicianposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      That's called a static or fixed background, and it's very possible to do with ads. Whether or not it'll look good though, now that's another question tongue

        I am a second millennium programmer in a third millennium world. big_smile

        I think the idea is definitely worth an experiment.
