Why do some hubpages look different?
I noticed some hubs have background images and some hubs' hubscores are in a different font. Is this is transition that is happening in waves and mine hasn't happened yet? Or am I crazy?
I just noticed that too. It's like premium Hubs with fancier layouts. It looks nice, but there are no related Hubs on the right side of these dressed up Hubs. I like related Hubs to continue reading about a subject.
Interesting. I haven't noticed this, but I'll pay more attention. I did learn a few tricks from hubs. For instance, you can add a divider between text capsules by using a photo hub. Another hub taught me how to make my links open in another tab without leaving my page by adding some HTML code. I am not an expert in HTML code, but wonder, if I knew more, could I at least dress up my text capsules (they have the HTML option in the upper left when you are in the edit mode).
I asked a question about this and an answer was that the HP creators want all of the pages to look similar and not look like spam. That makes the question of hub and hub premium even more interesting.
They are trying a new format and if people seem to like it, it will be used by all.
I just noticed the change yesterday on someone's hub and also wondered if we were all in for a change. It is a simple, clean cut look which I found attractive, but I kind of like the related hubs listed also.
HubPages is trying a new layout. No, your not crazy! They sent out an email to inform about it. They also have more information about it on their blog if you care to check it out. There are not any real major changes, but subtle ones. Hubscores will be displayed differently and also the author name and score will be placed underneath the title of the article to give it a more professional appearance.
I think that the premium members' pages will look a bit different, and also Hub Pages is trying a new format I believe, but do not know how soon we will all be able to try it out.

I have two suggestions:1.. Improve the statistics counter so that you aren't waiting for hours for them to update2...Put little cover picture icons next to hubs in the statistics area so that you can find your own hubs easier.Any other suggestions?

Heads up! As part of a traffic experiment, we changed the number of Hubs listed in the Related Hubs section to eight instead of five. We expect the experiment to last about a week, but wanted to let everyone know that the change is not permanent. Please check out this thread for background...

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...

As mentioned in a couple of forum threads recently, Hub Groups (the "More in this Series" module on Hubs) is officially being retired. Groups were created to help Hubbers connect Hubs belonging to a series (e.g., a Hub with multiple parts), making it easy for readers to access the other...
