Searching for Earlier Hubs

    Is ther a way to search hubs other than going back pages by page?  Make the searches in bigger incriments like month at a time as well as page at a time---or even ten pages at a time.

    What I was trying to do was go back to hubs like months ago and all I can do is by pages and that is only about a week at a time--even if I select the earliest number on the bottom of the pages.

    I get to my older hubs from my accounts page, and using the "find next" feature within the browser..but not Internet Explorer! Theres is very lame and useless!

      No I was looking for hubtivity of all hubs.  I was trying to go back months to see what was hus then and maybe refreash some other hubbers hus by making a comment to them.  I know how to get to my own hubs from way back.

    We've got some more advanced searching functionality in the pipeline that may help, but in the meantime there is a not very user friendly way you can jump around faster.  What you do is just go change the page number manually in the URL:

    For instance, just change the 2:

    http://hubpages.com/hubs/latest/?page=2

    to 1500:

    http://hubpages.com/hubs/latest/?page=1500

    in the address bar of your browser then hit enter.  That will get you to about a month ago (for all hubs).  The number of pages will vary if you are filtering by author or by tag, of course.

      Thank You!!  I never thought of that.  Sorry about the "B" being missing.  My keyboard just started doing that.

      Compu-smart--no problem.

      The furthest it goes back is 2 months at page number 2750.

    Hi Lady Guinevere

    If your keyboard is faulty, you can use your "on board keboard" which many people dont know they have...

    Just incase you dont know, press "start", then "run" and type osk and ok

      Would that work for a laptop too?

      Does that put a keyboard on the monitor, or something?

          I shy away from buttons I've never pushed before! The "run" button scares the bejeebers out of me, for some reason.

        Cool Lady Guinevere, im  glad you have sorted this out!

        I wanted to mention a easy way to use your on-board keyboard (OSK)... click "start" - "programs" - accessories -  (depending on your Operating System) "ease of access" OR "accessibility" now where you see  the OSK , right click and send to desk top (create short cut) This send an icon of the keyboard to desk top.. Now you can access it quicker from the desk top..Or even quicker if you drag it to the "quick launch " area on the task bar..Or if you want to access even quicker and easier, try these tips
