    I have heard others talk about how they are still having trouble with the share button for HibPages so I know I am not the only one. It just takes a dozen or more clicks and I occasionally give up trying and wonder how often others do too.
    Will they never get this fixed?

      I noticed this too and just gave up after a few tries.  Hopefully it's just a bug that gets fixed soon.

        It has been so long now I have little hope it will fix itself. Was hoping HP could do something with it affecting so many.

      I have a iMac desktop computer, have no trouble sharing hubs on HubPages, a new window opens up  when I click the button, asks me if i want to share, I click yes. Then it say's it's shared and I close the window.

        I have the window come up too but must click multiple times although just ever so rarely it will share on the first click!

          I have the same problem - I have a MacBook Air (fairly recent model, updated to the latest OS), and it takes forever for shares to load.  I have the trouble on multiple browsers. Others have reported this, too.

          Jackie - after realizing the system was slow, I don't click multiple times (although I sorely want to) - it eventually kicks in and shares.  I have been worried it would share more than once, because I've also seen that happen with other people.

            I have never seen a double share but I will try just the one click although I probably will be more tempted to just move on.

      yeah, it keeps hanging there, I had to press share 3 times to get the message across

        Gosh I have pressed twenty or more times. Mine is really stuck!

    I updated the bug we have open for this the other day.  I'll try and get this to the top of the bug queue.

      Thanks, Paul - I'm sure the slow load discourages people from sharing, so it would be great to have it fixed!

      Hopefully this will get attention so they fix it. I use two computers and it is the same on both.
