Hi, I uploaded two articles this morning. One was entitled 'How to write your life story' and the other 'How to be happy in five minutes or less."
How come the one is showing on my profile and not the other?
In the past, I've also not had stories that show up immediately. Is there some sort of process I need to know about?
Can you see them on your account page? That will show whether the article is still pending or not.
Hi, sorry to get back to you so late. Heavy day yesterday. Sometimes my hubs go to my profile page when I publish them and sometimes they don't.
Despite publishing two articles, only one of them posted on my profile page.) That is the snapshot I posted. The other one "How to write your life story.' wasn't there.
Then when I went back, neither article was on my profile page.
In the old days, when one published something, it immediately went to one's profile page. Now it seems that one has to wait for the article to be approved.
I can certainly see them on my accounting page. I was talking about my profile page.
I realise they will be on your account page. That's where their status is shown. They won't appear on your profile untill their status shows as approved.
Articles disappear from your profile while they go through QAP.
Yep, the old days of writing a hub to catch a news cycle are gone. By the time HP publishes a new hub, the public interest has already moved on to something else. Evergreen is the only way; now if only I could think of a topic...
I've just checked again. Now they are on the profile page, but haven't been featured yet.
So, how exactly does this work.
When one puts a piece up, what does it mean for HP to publish something? That it is featured or what? Or can they post it to my profile, but it isn't featured? And does that mean that they can determine not to post something to my profile plus not feature it?
It's not featured until those circulating arrows on the right change to the black H.
When you first publish, for some reason they are on your profile and available for people to see. They appear on followers' feeds as well. Within a few hours they move to QAP and are effectively unpublished for the duration. It's the same for everyone.
So it first appears on one's profile immediately on publishing.
Then it is removed to go through QAP.
Then it goes through QAP and is put back on one's profile.
Then it is decided whether to feature it or not?
So there is a process for both QAP and for featuring? They are not the same thing? Have I got that right?
I think they are the same. Followed by assessment for a network site.
Well, then it doesn't fit. Because my two articles have now been loaded to my profile, but they have not yet been featured.
When editing profile settings, they can be:
A. Show featured only.
B. Show anything and everything published, whether featured or not.
It normally only takes a day or so to get a newly published article featured. I know the quality of your writing. Why don't you write in to inquire about it? Team@Hubpages.com.
If it's an older article from HP that you are trying to get onto a niche site, that's different. I've had two in the queue for over two weeks. I can't see why it takes so long, they are constantly introducing new editors. We are doing the writing, all they have to do is read the article.
Thanks. Both showed on my profile last night, and one was selected for a niche site a few hours later. When they showed up on my profile, neither had been accepted yet. Still had the Whitley circles against them. I guess there must be some sort of delay between it appearing on my profile page and the assessment process.

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs is less than 50% of the number of published hubs. My understanding of why...

I added some links to my other related hubs into this hub today which was featured before. Now I can't see most of the content when I access the hub and of course the Featured icon is gone. http://anitasaran.hubpages.com/hub/Shor … d-DialogueThanks!

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these might be. Many of my hubs were previously published in my local newspaper, the...

Hi I spent an hour researching online but no one seems to have the answer. On other sites I've been able to post my articles via URL on my Facebook FAN page with the picture, text popping up, but not HUB articles. No problem posting to my FB profile. But with my fan page it comes up with just...

I see other authors listing all their articles/Hubs on the profile page while above in the spotlight box the pics rotate in and out. And below the spotlight box is every article that they have written. How can I list all my 6 articles?Thanks
