Profile to Article Sign-In

    Here's a relatively small one. If I'm on my profile and click on one of my niche site articles, I view the article, but I'm not signed in. This is fine unless I want to edit or respond to comments, which I often do, and makes the process cumbersome.

      Here's the workaround that usually works for me - if I edit or open the niche site article from my account page, it will open with me signed in. If it doesn't work the first time, for some reason it usually does the second time.

      It's quite unhandy, but so far I've never had to actually sign in on a niche site.

        Thanks for your tip; that's what I usually what I end up doing. Again, not a big problem, but it'd be nice to go directly, and it's always struck me as odd; after all, we're already logged in to HubPages.

      I often open a hub from my account page and have the same problem - I'm not signed in on the niche site.  Refreshing the page, though, almost always gets me signed in on the niche site without actually having to sign in.

    First of all, why are you responding to comments from within each hub?  That is such a nuisance.  It’s much easier to moderate and respond to all comments in all your hubs from one place. You should be doing that in the global comment page.

    On your account page click on the comments tab. Then you don’t need to log into each hub, and you see all your new comments no matter where they are.  You can also filter the listing to see your low-quality comments and spam comments.

    As for editing, if you click the edit button next to the hub title in your article listing, you will not need to log in if it’s on a niche site. It will automatically log you in.

    Besides all that, if you do need to log into a niche site, it’s the same user and password you use on the main site.

      Often it helps to reread the part of my article they're referring to in order to refresh my memory and respond appropriately. The comments tab is very useful, but sometimes it's necessary to revisit our work.

      I'm aware of the edit transmit. Like I said, it's not a huge issue, but it'd be nice to be able to go directly from the profile. And I've had experiences where logging in takes you to the main page of the niche site rather than the article you logged in from, making relogging a hassle.
