    How do we get straight to the forum from our profile page? Sorry to be a pest.

      Just click on the three horizontal lines at the top left of the screen, where it says "MORE"

        Thanks for that... I knew someone would know.
        Are they trying to discourage forum posting? I guess that's OK, too.

            Blog
            Help
            Forum

              I see the lines on the profile page, and where it says Blog on the bottom. I don't see Help or Forum. It takes me to a Map Capsule tutorial.

              I see the Blog at the bottom, but it takes me to the Map Capsule page when I click it.

      Do you mean how to get to your feed? Click on the "HubPages" logo at the top - that will always take you to your feed whatever page you are on.

        No, I can't easily get to the forums. I have to go the HP rules page and click "Help."

    Jean, I’m having the exact same problem that you are. I thought it was just me, but apparently not.

    I'm still having the pesky problem.

      I don't think people get what we are saying. There's no direct way to get to the forums and what they tell me about the Blog, Help, Forum lands me to where I said. I can go to a Hubpages Forums link which lists all the niche sites and click "Help" to get here. But I can't see the daily forums or topic ones. It's so frustrating, especially when things change so fast.

        So what happens when you click the three bars at the top left of the page? A black panel should pop up. It has a scroll bar on it. Scroll to the bottom of the box and you should see Blog Help Forums. Click on Forums and it should bring you here.

        If it's not working, try in a different browser. If that does work then your normal browser may need 'cleaning'.

          Bev, thanks for suggesting another browser. I use a Chromebook, so you know what that means when it comes to browsers. When I click on the three horizontal lines, I do not see anything that you are talking about. It must be my browser.

          Jean, what browser are you using?

            I use Chrome on my desktop and have never had a problem with this.  As stated before, look at the word MORE on the upper left corner of the page.  Beside it are three lines.  Click on them.  Scroll all the way to the very bottom where you will see  Blog, Help, Forums.  Click on Forums.  It has been this way for quite some time.  If you still can't get on to the forums, click on HubPages at the top of the page.  This will take you to your feed.  Scroll down until you find a forum post.  Click on it and you can get to the forums that way, but you shouldn't have to do this.  If none of this works, email the team for help.

            I'm using Microsoft Edge. It's the only browser I have left since Window's 10 update wiped out my machine, not impressed. But it does get me to the forums smile

              Paradigm suggested bookmarking which is what I did. Sorry to hear about your computer. That is tragic about Windows 10 wiping out your computer. I had never heard of Microsoft Edge though until you mentioned it. Hope it's working out better now.

                Thanks, yeah, I saw the links, that's good to know. I don't know if it's better, I'm just doing what AI feels is best for me I guess. What a mess!

          I got it! I have Google Chrome. I have been on that list, but only saw "Blog." I didn't scroll down enough.

          Bev, thanks for your saintly patience!

          Gregory, click the three lines, and scroll down pretty far. I've been as far as "Blog" but didn't go any farther. I have problems because I often am afraid to "look around" too much when on the computer. Mine is finicky and I want to take a sledge hammer to it someday.

            There you go smile I have to say it's still a bit of a potch when all we had to do was click on the link at the top of the page.

            Jean, got it. Thanks. Remember how much easier it was when the option was at the top of the page?

    One can always just bookmark https://hubpages.com/forum/hubpages .
    I also do the same for https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats .

      Gregory DeVictorposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks. Bookmarking is the best way right now. Why didn’t I think of that?

      Ohhhh!  I can't believe I never thought of that!  I always have a problem getting to the forums from a niche site having to go a round about way to first get back to my stats page then go to more but not being able to do it directly. This is so useful!  Thanks!

    Forum usage seems to be dropping over time. Who knows what HP is up to these days? That was a rhetorical question. big_smile

    The times, they keep a changing.
