I hear ya, just happened to me too
wtf? confused at best
btw hi darside xo
I have it too, and I can't access anything above my actual stats, like Comments, Fan Mail, Questions, etc. I'm sure we'll get the explanation soon.
It works for me. It goes to a page so you can vote for the current HubNuggets.
I agree, though. There's no real explanation, I just recognized the HubNuggets because I already voted.
That link works for me but I'm not sure if voting for a hubnugget is the same as entering a competition. There's some desperately needed hand holding when a person arrives at that page.
But the other concern is my unclickable links.
The link to the contest is working, it's all the other things in our 'account' (like url, affiliate setting, comments you made etc. that are not). Hopefully should be back to normal soon.
Darkside as wordscribe41 said it goes to a page where you can vote for the current hubnugget. Also the hub nugget team is making some changes and it is a part of this change. This hub bt RedElf would help....http://hubpages.com/hub/Raiders-of-The-Lost-Nuggets
me too i cant access to my affiliate settings and url trakcers....
they should put an anchored post at the top like usual so ppl know whats going on rather than make everyone figure on their own who have never voted on hubnuggets b4 - makes it look like you'll be entered in a contest to win a mobile cart or an excersise bike if ya vote , which apparently is not the case !
I just experimented and tried the links from "my account" in Firefox, no dice. It's only working in IE...
thanks..so it's a browser thing.....I use Safari....and the links don't work.
In your browser if you set to block images the contest image will disappear and allow you to get to to the links...but when the issue is fixed remember to go back and allows hubpages images...I just did this in FireFox and it works
I am experiencing the same thing but what about the contest. What is all about? How I can enroll in the contest. What are this contest's benefits? Why should we vote for hubs in that contest? I do know the reasons for that. If anyone can help me or guide me, it would be highly appreciated.
Shirley's hub explains it nicely. It's to recognize new hubbers. Hi Patton! Your daughter is adorable.
I am pleased I noticed this because I tried to follow it and work out what it meant and then decided either I did not understand it or it was a link to HubberNuggets. If it is about HubberNuggets voting I was too confused to take part.Thanks.
- Safari down
- Firefox 3.5.8 down
- Google Chrome down
I have to try IE ?
Here's what mtsi said: In your browser if you set to block images the contest image will disappear and allow you to get to to the links...but when the issue is fixed remember to go back and allows hubpages images...I just did this in FireFox and it works
I hear you about IE!
Tools > options > content. The banner is gone but I still can't access my links.
In Firefox, goto Tools > Options > Uncheck Load Images Automatically
I suggest installing ad-block plus add-on and filter the particular hub image. That is better option and yes, it also improves loading time of hubs as it blocks ads.
On fire fox I did this:
then where it says load images automatically I clicked exceptions
http://hubpages.com/my/hubs as the exception.
and everything is working and that banner is gone
Yeah, that's the only way I can get it to work... It's fine in FireFox now.
Thanks Micheganman! This worked for me. Seems to be the easiest way for me for now. I'll just remove the block when things get up and running. I always thought it weird that IE is no longer an option for Mac users.
I'm sure it will be taken care of shortly .-. I hope....
Though it did kinda make me write a health related hub haha
Oops, the link for the Chrome fix didn't work. However, I have a get around. I put a button on my bookmark bar that takes me to
hubpages.com/my/traffic_source This gets me to the traffic page of my account. From there, all the other links are available.
Thanks to those who advised me. I blocked the images but the pages still wouldn't open. So I opened them in IE instead, everything worked, but then my comp crashed. I knew there was a reason why I switched from IE to Firefox in the first place!
Back online, Firefox worked but the buttons not working again. Grrr!
I use firefox--cannot go to anything but my stats--please fix it admin!!
I think the contest wording a little confusing, I assumed it was to enter a contest, why does it not say hubnuggets. Really must try to keep up with site developements.
I cannot open those tabs either. I wonder if when they added the banner about the contest if they didn't screw something up;o)
I just tried to access my Groups to add a new hub and could not and none of the other options are working either above the Contest banner. I tried refreshing but it is still the same!
I swear guys I didn't break it...(for once)
but the techy team will soon sort out the works, let's not panic for another hour or two yet
I've got firefox and I'm doing everything that has been suggested and it still does not work.
Its all locked - in all browsers for me. So, I guess I'll be calling it a day with Hubpages and move along. Happy Tuesday.
not working using OSX and Safari. But the contest looks interesting
CPA Exam Blog[
I just took a round about route and got my url trackers and affiliate settings buttons to work. I went to the home page hubpages.com to see if I had any comments and I did (a little 1 next to comments and my pic). I was able to click that and went straight to my comments in my account and url trackers worked as did fan mail, I assume that I was by-passing this content banner and that must be what is messing up the button codes
Same problem here. I hope that the banner will be removed soon. I understand that there are ways around it, but still the burden should not be on us to find them.
Same here, nothing works, and what competition is it anyway? Very misleading.
Same thing here using Firefox 3.5.8.
Cant access any of the links.
For me stats are working in Internet Explorer but not in Google Chrome and Firefox.
If you've firefox then install ad-block plus and filter the image shown in my account page.
Call me a grumpy old lady, but I don't want to do a "work around" I want it to work like it's supposed to;o) But what I wanted to do was check my adsense, so I just went off site and went to my google account, *sigh*
Having problems here too, I am loathe to use internet explorer, but I may have to!
I tried all the browsers I have (the big three) and NONE of them work. I do not have a blocker on any of them.
My links work. Just no "contest" to be found.
I did see the "vote" thing, but it's advertised as a contest to enter, not a "vote for..."
And, as with most things "internet," my attention quickly moves to something else...
