How come this has to be so wide? The skyscraper ads never fill it horizontally. If it was narrower, wouldn't it allow article images to be larger and help with the zoom issue (which is still a problem).
I've just viewed some of your articles in Chrome on my PC and the skyscraper ads on the right hand side fill the column width. Are you on a zoom setting of less than (or more than) 100%?
It depends too on this Windows display setting, even if a browser is set to display actual size. I use 125% because otherwise text would be tiny on a HD display. Increasing to 175% makes both text and graphic elements on the Maven version of Hubpages sites fill the view area.
I am still not seeing a sidebar. Unsure why, as I live in the US and was not experiencing ad issues, before I updated my operating system. I use a Chromebook and agree the sidebar feels extemely wide. I don't think I have a widescreened computer and zoom is always set at 100%.
Without the ads the empty space makes the whole page look off center. If I'm lucky I do ocassionally see a small square ad that pops in and out as I scroll, but nothing like the long sidebar ad I use to see. This is what it looks like for me now.

Today, we launched a new desktop ad layout. It features a lazy load (ads don't load until they approach the view of the reader), no ads above the fold, but the 300X250 refreshes after 30 seconds and anchors in the sidebar. We'll see how this impacts user experience and revenues over the...

How to get adsense to display in the content right-top position (not sidebar)?Does anybody know how to get adsense displayed in the right top corner in the content? What do I have to do, or what kind of capsules must be inserted?Thanks

There seems to be two issues. Firstly tapping on an image on a mobile device doesn't expand an image. Maybe it's not supposed to? I tried doing the two fingered thing on the unexpanded image, but it was impossible to read the text on it, although I know it's legible on my original image. The same...

This has been an ongoing problem for years on desktop and mobile devices, but it doesn't appear to work whatsoever now on desktop. Also thumbnailed images are miniscule and can't be increased in size to the width of text, even if uploded at over 1200 pixel width.

We're testing out a Facebook Social Plugin at the bottom of the sidebar on hubs. It shows personalized activity feeds (the most interesting recent activity taking place on HubPages) and personalized recommendations (hubs). You can read more about it and other plugins here.
