I believe that I read on some forum posts that the inability to make comments on many of the niche sites would, at some point, be corrected. Does anyone have an idea of how long this will take?
On some of the Delishably sites, the descriptions under photos (except for the top image) are missing. Is this also a temporary glitch? I think it is helpful to have a description. Is anyone else noticing this?
I have the same query Peggy, about the recent transfers of some of the niche sites.
1. The profile picture of the author is not visible.
2. The readers are not able to comment on the article.
3. I am not sure about, how much the ownership of the article is affected.
.4. Yes, the descriptions under the pictures are important, and they should be visible. I am not quite comfortable in accepting these changes.
I am not comfortable with the changes I have noticed on these niche sites. Change is never easy. I hope that there are adjustments made so that comments are possible again and that the photo descriptions are reinstated.
That is a good point, Chitrangada. I had not noticed the profile picture was also missing. Will the descriptions under the photos start showing at some point? Will comments once again be allowed on the sites where they are now no longer available except to show the old ones already made? I wish someone from HubPages or Maven would answer these queries.
I too have the same queries. I am unable to post comments on articles and saw awkwardly placed advertisements in between the articles .... That prompted me to look for what had gone wrong and I came to this forum. I hope these queries are addressed and proper actions are taken at the earliest.
I have not noticed this. All the Delishably articles that I know have photo captions are showing them. Two other articles I looked at were also showing captions.
Are you sure they had captions? In my experience not all authors use captions.
I just checked the Delishably site to find the captions are now there. Unfortunately, they have an advertisement right under most of the photos, so unless a person scrolls down further, readers might not notice the captions. The ads would be better placed under the photos with captions showing.
With technology today, there are no excuses. The changeover is not professional with glitzes. I am very disappointed.
I was going through a couple of interesting posts and I really missed commenting on them like before. Back here after a sabbatical. Hubpages has changed so much. But keeping faith that it is all for the good.
I'm glad this topic is here.
Having just started to browse around what other people are writing, as a newbie, I read an interesting hub on one of the network sites and wanted to leave a comment. There was a comment section there with published comments, but I couldn't find how to leave one myself. I thought it was just a personal technical issue.
How do the comments get there then? Are these hubs also published somewhere else which does allow commenting and if so how can I find them?
Ah I see.
And thank you for the welcome and the advice
Got to say, I'm really, really surprised so many folks feel so strongly about comments.
I think it depends on the topic, but many times in the past I have had readers ask "but what about..." and after answering I have gone back to article and added something that other readers may need in the future.
Not having comments make articles look cheap and just another huckster site that is not at all helpful.
My problem with the site migration is that all of my videos are missing from my articles on Spinditty. Others that I've asked also can't see them although they can be seen when I use the 'View on Hubpages' option.

I've noticed that I keep seeing HOTDs that fit the niche sites yet weren't chosen for the niche sites because they still have HubPages URLs. Why not save some time in the selection process for the niche sites and mine all the recent HOTDs and all of the Editor's Choice hubs for use on the niche...

I know a lot of you are curious about how the niche sites are doing. Recently, 21 of my articles were moved over. Some were edited, some were not. Most did not have ads, but of the ones that did, some were left in place, others were converted to in text links to products.I've been...

Hi, I have question that as now my almost all hubs are moved to discover hubpages so, am looking to submit them to the respective network sites. But I have found discover hubpages have different categories. Like hubpages have "paired life" for articles related to relationships but...

Then I have to change them back again. Grrr!If thumbnails were displayed properly, it would be fine. But they're tiny, the selected image is tiny and can't be zoomed and captions can't be viewed while viewing the image. Overall it results in a bad reader experience.

Hello everyone! I am now starting to get used to Hubpages and have written some articles that have all been featured. My question is: What is the difference between being featured and being approved to one of the niche sites? Is there a significant traffic boost when being on the niche sites or can...

I'm pulling 2013 kind of randomly, but I really miss how HubPages used to be. It used to be a really friendly place. We used to have kind of an "in" with the administration in that Maddie and Simone would give us advice. There used to be contests to motivate us to write.I understand that...
