    I notice that the hubs are listed single file on my Profile Page today. It looks nice, and I'm not sure it's a problem. But it does seem to list less hubs, at a time when my traffic is pitiful. I could be mistaken, are less hubs listed or does it just seem so because it's not cluttered?

      We are in the process of redesigning the site to better support mobile devices.
      The profile page and topics pages are the first areas to be addressed in this on-going directive.
      Paul Edmondson just posted a bit more details here.

        I liked the old layout better as it gave more visibility to my hubs. I do not want Q&A and Forum activity on Profile... Is there a way I can avoid it from being displayed?

      I just noticed that. Hmmm. I like the other way better honestly, I wish we had a choice on layout.

      I like the change.  It looks like all of your hubs are listed, Jean.  That could be interesting for those with hundreds/thousands of hubs.  I checked, it simply loads more.

        I like the new way too. I think that it is easier to read than going 'left, right, left...' Plus I believe that you can scan down faster without passing Hubs as easily as in the previous way.
        For those with more Hubs it probably pauses while 'loading' appears.

      I love the change. If you have selected to have unfeatured hubs (if you have any) to be shown on your profile than all your hubs should be visible to readers, otherwise unfeatured hubs won't show and you will have less hub in your profile - again if you have any unfeatured hubs.

      I love the change they made to the profile. Looks much better now. Question is if readers will actually scroll far down to see all your hubs.

        It does look pretty good now that I've had more time to look at it. rebekahELLE, I think you are right, it looks like my hubs are all there. And if they aren't, they are ones that I get little traffic on or forgot about! I think people may scroll down, sometimes I notice the pictures first and that leads me to a piece I want to read. I wish we had more time to read everyone's hubs. It's so hard when we write in so many places!

      I like it, its much better to be able to scroll down and see what catches the eye much quicker!

        Me too, Nell. Much more like the other social networking sites like Yahoo news and such. Very nice change.

        Thank you relache.  I just noticed and it was quite a difference to see at first.  I think I like it.

          I looked too and it was a difference to the Hubs. They were more noticeable instead of being scrunched up. The photos and the summaries were more enlarged now. I wonder if someone gave this idea on that recent summary?

      I think the new one-column view is better because a lot of readers (including myself) get distracted with multiple columns on a page and tend to skip some important hubs that deserved to be read.

      I think it looks nice smile

      I like it, too. It's less distracting than the previous profile design. I think it will help to focus a reader's attention on each hub. It seems to make the photos stand out better as well.
