I'm trying to find a way to explore articles without having questions and forum posts mixed in, but when I click on explore articles I get all three mixed together. Is there a way to explore just articles?
Good question. We used to have Hub Hopper, but that's gone now. One short-term solution is to use the Find function (hit Control and F on your keyboard), type "article", and only browse through those entries.
Choosing the "best" option on topic pages will limit the results to mostly articles, but there is no way to exclude forum discussions and Q&A completely.
Thanks. I guess this must be some change that HubPages has made since I last focused on the site. Makes it hard to find good articles to read since you have to go through so much other stuff.
Perhaps it's time HubPages changed the options under the "Explore" tab, because it's misleading. Currently, it's split into "Articles" and "Answers" - but as you've pointed out, Articles contains lots of Answers and there's no way to exclude them. And Answers doesn't give you any answers at all, it takes you to Questions and doesn't display the answers to them.
We are slowly phasing out the old header with "Explore" as we complete the engineering work to enable the use of the new design on more parts of HubPages.
I liked it better when we could explore what we wanted to explore instead of having everything lumped together, but I guess we have to learn to live with it.

I am sorry to have to bring this up, but, and I don't want to get banned from HP's by naming names - but there are some complete dick heads in these forums who think they know it all and walk all over everyone else, you must have seen them or read their answers, so condescending it is unbelievable....

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...

Why is there a forum section on hubpages?My experience says, the question and answers is almost the same as the forums. People ask questions and put it in a category. And the same happens in the Q&A section. So what is the need of the forums?And how do you use it differently?
