    I just created a new hub and it saved it unpublished but won't publish it. keeps saying error on the page. There are at least two other threads in the need help section on this.

      Me too. I just joined like two hours ago and was able to publish one article. But when I tried to do a second one I get the whole error thing too.

    I'm glad it saved it but am worried that something may be lost in translation or it will publish multiple times since I clicked it a couple of times. Hopefully they will have it fixed soon.

    I am having the same problem. My hub will not publish as the publish button doesn't work at the moment. Thankfully it is saved. I hope it doesn't disappear as it is a Hub Mob hub.

    Well, it's good to know that everyone is experiencing this.  Glad it saved too.

    I went in to edit the hub and it let me hit done editing and now my hub is published so you might try that for those of you that were able to save unpubbed.

      I can save already published hubs, but new ones remain unpublished. When I hit the publish button, there's an error on page in the bottom left corner. Is anybody else still experiencing this?

        Yes. Unpublished hubs, when I try to use the edit function does not have the "done editing" button.

    I should have come here first.  I am having the same problem, I thought I was doing something wrong.  Hopefully the problem will be resolved really soon.  This is not good for the new people.  It's normally not like this.  I am new and this is the first time I have experienced something like this.

      This is indeed unusual. Save any hubs that won't publish as unpublished and hopefully tomorrow we'll be back to normal.

    We're looking into the problem.  It appears to only affect Internet Explorer users, so if you have another browser handy you might try it (for instance Firefox, Chrome, or Opera).

    There's definitely something wrong with IE.  I used Firefox and was able to publish my new hub.

    Thanks Paul!

    Thanks for this thread. I am publishing my 62nd hub and I cant publish it. I thought Im the only one encountering this problem. Just wait for the system to be fixed; I sure hope that they are doing something about it.

    Since upgrading Explorer I have had a lot of problems, not just on here but elsewhere. I think it's time to download Firefox.
