    Yeah, I am poking around looking at changes, too. I have sort of mixed feelings about it, but overall I probably like it smile

      Mixed feelings indeed!

      It's too spacey. There is A LOT of white area making the site look empty, like the space isn't used properly. The lines in the forums should be a pinch thicker.

      The site looks beta-style if that makes any sense.

        I disagree. I don't like looking at pages that have too much on them. I like this, more like the printed page. People will concentrate more on the writing in my opinion.

        My personal blog is very white and I like it that way. Too many blogs are chock full of ads and flashy icons and widgets, etc. I am of the opinion that the plainer the better. You can dress up your own hub with pictures and videos.

    Agreed. I expect less lashback than the FB revap. big_smile

    It'll take a little getting used to.  Like the layout but it's a little hard on old eyes with so much white?  Otherwise, I think it is much more polished and has a good feel.

    I like it -- something clean and crisp about it.  (As in, not busy or overloaded with detail, colors, and annoying flashing icons.)

    I like it all much better (and I didn't think I could like it any better). Looks neater and more organized-- I also like the larger avatars on the fans, and organization of the published hubs, and the ... well, it all looks great. Good work.

    You did away with color red? I thought a few "reds" is not bad.

    I am getting used to it, I like the "jump to last post" on the forums, but there are a few glitches but I am not going to open up a can of worms as this is only been up for a little while and I am certain that HP has seen the same thing. I will give it time before I comment on the internal aspects. smile

      If you see something wrong, please let us know. There are a couple of things that we have already noticed and are in the process of fixing, but it doesn't hurt to tell us if you notice something.

        In forums: where do I find the link to "all my posts"?

        1. darkside profile image82
          darksideposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          On the left hand side where your name says 'ngureco'...

          Underneath that is says 'x amount of posts'.

          Click on that.

              But still you need to know where your posts are on the front page: http://hubpages.com/forum/. If you can add that link "my posts" on the forum front page as it was before it would help me navigate to the last post I posted.

    HubPages now have a much cleaner look. Somehow I too have mixed feelings regarding the changes. I liked he earlier profile page with the latest 3 hubs highlighted.

    I like it! Very crisp!

    Just one thing.. In firefox and I.E.

    when im editing a text capsule, and highlight word to add the link, the back is now too dark making it harder to read the words Link URL-Quick Link to Your Hub and show advanced options!..


    Just a thought!

    I love the new design--As a matter of fact, I thought changing the design every 6 months or so may be a great idea.

    Most web surfers want to see something different, something new.

    I *****LOVE***** this new layout.  It's so clean, crisp, and honestly, the old layout felt too 2001 to me. tongue

    Of course, it will take some getting used to for some, but dear Lord what a fantastic change.

    I am still getting used to the new look, I like the layout and it is much more professional looking and easier to find articles to read, the other part I like is how the requests page looks now.

    Hi everybody! I'm James, the HubPages employee who designed the comps that were eventually turned into the working version of the site.
    Thanks a million to all of you who have posted feedback. We read it all.
    The basic idea I kept in mind while working on this was to highlight your content as much as possible. I am of the opinion that a successful HubPages design would never distract a reader away from your writing, but rather serve as a blank canvas.
    That is the reason for the predominantly white layout, and minimal use of color.
    Special thanks to Uninvited Writer, who seemed to understand this at first impression. I'm thrilled to not have this fall on deaf ears.
    Really special thanks to Larry, Fawntia, and Paul, who not only gave me as much freedom as I wanted, but made the design better, and did all of the real work.

      That was my first impression as well, I like it better every time I look. Y'all did a good thing for all of us.

    It's a little disconcerting at first. But that's because you get used to what you're used to.

    Probably the biggest change for me is the layout of the actual forum thread. Right now it's a little harder to read. But that could be because I'm not yet familiar with the way it's laid out.

    It could be because the pages are now centred. My eyes are so used to being pulled to the left hand margin. But I like centred. Centred is good. I like the white on the sides, especially in the hubs themselves.

    Unlike the Facebook design update I think I'll learn to love this change. But I'll see how I feel in two weeks time!

    I guess it will grow on me.... sooner or later. The familiar always felt good to come home too.  Lets see how the changes will feel in a couple of weeks. By the way what happenes if I do not like it later on? Nothing? So I guess I'll shut my mouth and make do.

    One big plus I must admit: the News capsules are working now, where they were being real stinkers in the last few days.
