    Hubpages is not allowing creation of new hubs.  Once continue button is used, another page comes up instead of the page to input the artice, photos and video.  Is Hubpages having technical difficulties.

      Hi Linda Goffigan,

      I just tested it and it worked fine for you. 

      Which browser and OS are you using?  I tested it on Windows XP with IE 8 and I had no trouble starting a new hub.

        You used IE8 and had no trouble? Lol that's remarkable! IE 8 pains a ton of local IT people around here. I won't even upgrade it from 7 personally. (I use firefox, no need to update it to mess with my internal operations that require IE)

    Some weird things are going on. I couldn't open hubpages for 4 days, and hubpages team didn't know what was the matter

    Do not worry, nothing will be lost by hubpages (data recovery is too far advanced for that). I have a feeling, this is Hubpages first major crash within there existence. It isn't a quick thing to fix, like it would be..say for eBay. IT work is hard and I'm sure Paul, Fawntia, Larry, and Sumit are working hard at getting all the massive amounts of data onto the new server to be up and running shortly!

      And pigs fly! No data recovery is 100% reliable.

        of course not  100%, but any worthwhile big operation has redundant back ups, so recovery doesnt amount to the same effort as say your personal hard drive..even that is is a field that is quite successful when you have the budget (clean room recovery work 300/hr!)

    I tried to create one also. It wouldn't work for me until I tried the simpified version. I am using Windows Vista and IE8.

    One note to point out. I didnt select a category at first and got  the error message telling me to selct one. I then selcted a category and clicked continue. It wouldn't go through. The page did nothing but just sit there.

    I've published two today and almost finished another started from scratch today - though the text was done offline. Not sure what the problem is but hope you've got it sorted.
