As per AxleAddict live status, I visit the site on day one. I did visit again and again after log out from facebook, or any other website. I didn't use email or code. The system just recognized me. Have anyone there experiencing this? I need to know and what accounts for the phenomena.
I didn’t need to log in again when I revisited AxleAddict either.
Glenn, at the first visit, I didn't use e-mail and a code plus user name. Is that normal?
Miebakagh, the comment system is new to me too, so I don't know what's normal. However, when I first tested it, I logged in the same way as you, with a code that was sent to my email.
What? In my case, I just log in without a code being sent to my email inbox.
You must have been logged in already then. It keeps me logged in every time I go back to check comments.
I just test read an article on AxleAddict and left a comment. I was signed in to HubPages but haven't been to AxleAddict for weeks. It let me leave a comment without entering an email or code.
John, Here's a question: When you had been to AxleAddict weeks ago, do you recall signing in at that time?
The first time I did it, it sent me a code that I needed to copy and paste. From that point on I was always signed in.
That is also what happens when a non-hubber wants to leave a comment. I tried that as an alias with a different email address.
John, like you, I signed in from HubPages. And unlike you also, I've not visit AxleAddict for months.
That sounds terrific...I haven't tried it for awhile.
Nope..I had to put in email. Then get a code to submit.
Plus...there was no where at the bottom to comment.
I had to scroll back up to top of article to hit comment.
That's a problem too.
That's right. It's hidden because of that. The comment link is at the bottom too. But readers will not know to click it.
A new problem I just noticed: There is a new section of 50 articles listed in the middle of one of my AxleAddict articles with a subtitle: "Read More from AxleAddict"
I thought part of my hub was cut off, but when I scrolled past the 50 lists, the rest of my hub continued. I am not happy about that and will report it to Matt. Anyone else see that?
Yea, I see the READ MORE button. I click and it took me to the top of the page, to begin to scroll down.
I'm seeing it too. That's bonkers. I think 3-6 closely related articles appearing at that point might make sense, but you are right, it makes it looks like the the end of the article.
This has to be a mistake somehow.
I see hubpages taking notes to make correction. AxleAddict is on a testing run.
I think AxelAddict has quite a few glitches right now. I saw "read more on..." on every niche site (but not every article), however AA is the only one with ridiculously long sections. Hopefully the tech team can get it sorted away quickly. The others I saw were only three articles (like the trial run a few months back, or was it last year already?), but the placement is still haphazard and breaks up paragraphs. In shorter articles they are even popping up between the Q&A again. All issues Eugene and I had brought up the first time this was brought out.
I still do not like that most of them are recommending articles unrelated to what the actual article is about either. I found one article on Delishably that had 3 articles with the same topic as the article. The rest however, have all been random and mostly unrelated.
I did not see 50 articles, but I did see they were trying the read more article section in the middle of content again. I am only seeing 3 articles though. It was not successful the first time (I'm assuming considering it did not last long on Owlcation). I'm disappointed to see this back again. It makes it look like the author is recommending related articles and that is far from the case. The placement is also horrible on the articles I saw it on. Which was similar to my experience when it was on Owlcation.
EDIT TO ADD: I am seeing a huge long list on one of your articles. After looking through a couple more I'm seeing both, but it seems the long list is more common than the 3 I initally saw in the first two articles I looked at. Hopefully the long lists are a glitch. They look terrible and make the page load much slower.
In regards to the email I had to do it twice already (both on my Chromebook), but I cannot find a way to sign in once I have already "created" an account. Even if I am logged in here at HP it will not log me in at AxleAddict. So I have 2 accounts now and I have no idea how to log in to either one of them. My only option from the comments section is to create a user name which I already have. I was logged in for a few days, but now it is showing I'm not logged in despite actively being logged in here and commenting in the forums. When I type in my current username it tells me it is unavailable, but it does not give me the option to sign in with it.
Same here. Good for you. And thank goodness...at least you gain an experience.
It seems different for laptop to iPad or phone. On the laptop i could just click comments (once I found it) and leave a comment without having to enter an email or get a code. When I tried it on the iPad it said I had to sign in and enter an email address…weird.
Actually, that's not weird at all. It must be saving a cookie when you log in the first time fromany device with the code it sends you.
So, there was no cookie on your iPad since you never signed in from that device yet.
I bet now that you did, you won't have to sign in from the iPad again. Let me know if that's how it works out for you as time goes by.
I just went back to AxleAddict using the iPad again and once more it asked me to sign in and enter my email address before commenting….so that didn’t save.
This is getting even weirder! I just tried it with my iPad. I never checked AxleAddict before with my iPad. It already had me signed in when I clicked the comment button.
I think it recognizes you through your Google account. I singed out of mine and signed in to my husband's, and I had to use the email and code method. Also, he is not an HP member, so I guess anyone can sign in and comment that way.
I think it may have to do with your Google account.
I just saw this comment after my reply to Glenn. I double checked my phone and I'm still logged in there, but my Chromebook has the same Google account and I am not staying logged in on my laptop so strange.
EDIT: I did not realize comments were live on WanderWisdom. I was able to sign in there with my username I used on AxleAddict, but it still will not transfer to AxleAddict and I only have the option to create not sign in. I wonder if there is a glitch on AA that is causing a sign in issue?
The article seemed to be split also with a “read more from AxleAddict” articles in the middle of it and then continued. There was a second “comments” button after the bottom section…which I clicked on. Weird.
Yeah. I just mentioned that to Brenda (above). I also sent Matt an email about it. I am truly not happy at all about that one. And now that you confirmed you have it too, I'm really dissapointed. No one will ever know to scroll past 50 listings to continue reading our articles.
You think the article is finished, because there are so many other article featured you think you are at the end but that isn’t the case. You have to scroll down past them all to find the rest of the article.
Okay, after I got the email code and used that to comment…..it recognised me on the next article I checked out and I didn’t have to do it again.
But this time I didn’t leave AxleAddict and return, so whether that matters I don’t know.
Yes Miebakagh. The articles there are so hard to read with all the adds and “more from AxleAddict content” and the need to scroll up and down a little to find the comment box when you have clicked “comment” is annoying. Have you checked if it is the same on Wander Wisdom?
John, i tried to post you this yesterday. But due to the brief glitch, the comment couldn't move. The comment button's on top of page. Clicking it will scroll the page down to the end or foot of the page. Clicking at the foot of the page will likewise scroll the page up. It's a ding-dong affair. Seriously, the site WW is rich with long reads that delights me.
John, WanderWisdom? I'm yet to make a go. With all the issues of AxleAddict, could they be any difference? Okay, will visit later.
With the difficulty of leaving comments: signing in, giving your email address, receiving a code (scrolling through recommended articles) etc. It is a lot easier to just click "contact author" (if available) and send them a comment via email. It won't be available for anyone else to see though.

Do you always leave a comment if you read a hub?I have followers whom I've never seen in the comments sections and just wondered what other hubbers think about the comments in general. Do you leave comments when you read? Sometimes? Always? Never? Please give your reasons with...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

I saw in my feed that someone wrote a hub and it really interested me because I had something similar happen to me. I went to comment on it but I could not find ANYWHERE to comment on it other than through my feed.How do you comment on the new sites?Also, holy ads. I get why people use ad block.

Hello Everyone,HubPages is an excellent site for sharing and publishing, however I believe that people will only remark on your pieces if you comment on theirs. It's like a give-and-take situation. Sorry to say, but this is what I've found while scrolling through the feed and on my hubs on a daily...

I just started writing here a couple of days ago and I really like it so far but I wanna network and connect with more people. How do some people have over 1000 followers, is it because they have been here for awhile or do they just write awesome articles? Also if you could drop any hints on how to...
