    In the HP search feature, no matter what I type in the secondary search box, the search term in that secondary box reverts to "hubs".

    This is making it impossible to find a Hubber profile.

      Thanks for the thought, cosette...yes I am logged on.  This is not a new problem, and it is also something that other Hubbers have shared with me.  I'm just getting around to being the "voice"...wonder if you've had the same experience while logged in?

    I'd say maybe they're doing some work on the search section, b/c I just messed around with it and all I could look under was "site and the only thing showing in results were forum posts. According to the search I don't exist wink

      Exactly, Janetta.  But this is not new.  I'm not sure when it least a few days ago.

    I was having problems earlier searching for a hubber.

    Sorry to say this folks, but it is not fixed.  Enter a Hubber's name in the search box, select "site" as the second search option, and the results are returned based on "hubs" which now appears in that second option.

    I have tried this with IE 8 and Firefox 3.5.5.  So it's not a browser problem.

    Hub Team, what's up with this?
