      Old Profile URL is still coded in all pages

      6 years ago

      I noticed that the "my profile" link at the top of every page still goes to the old URL. It works because it follows the 301 redirect. But it should go direct to the subdomain URL.

      Link URL's in text capsules get messed up.

      7 years ago

      I just discovered a new problem that may have started with the new text capsule. When I copy and paste a perfectly good link into a new location it adds a second http after the one I already have there. This makes the link fail if someone clicks on it. Example: "http://hubpages.com"...

      The new Google algorithm is giving all of us a run for the money. The HubPages Team has been working hard at making changes to the rules for Amazon and eBay capsules for the purpose of improving overall revenue for all of us. I was thinking about another situation. News and RSS Feed capsules can...
