Suggestion: Make hubs easy to find from a Hubber's profile page

    Hi there,

    I've noticed that since my hubs are no longer "new", they aren't visible on my profile page.  One can find them by clicking the word "more" (next to the categories latest - hot - best), but if I direct a person who's never seen HubPages before to my profile page, they might have a lot of difficulty finding my hubs.

    I'm suggesting that at least a partial list of hubs, with a more prominent "more hubs" link, be shown at all times to minimize confusion.

    This has happened to me on many occasions when visiting websites.  It's sometimes very frustrating to find information on some websites because the links are either nowhere to be found, or very hard to spot. 

    I hope this suggestion is implemented, as I earnestly believe it will improve the HubPages experience, especially for those who've never visited the site before.  Thanks a lot!

      I'm not promoting myself.  I had a real problem where I couldn't see any of my hubs from my profile page.

    You've got two hubs and both are visible on your profile.

    What seems to be the problem?

      I think it was a technical issue with HP, but it seems to have been resolved now.

    Actually, it's not a bad idea at all, for people with loads of hubs.

    I suppose you can get round it by doing your own "index" hub, complete with titles-as-links grouped under appropriate headings, and putting a link to it in your profile. 

    I might just do that myself actually...

    You only have 2 hubs, and both are visible on your profile page.

    There is a more button on the profile page to view more hubs either by date, hot, or best hubs. It's dead center of the page (well depending on your browser size, I guess).

    You can also search hubs via the search option on the profile page. If you know what hub you're looking for from a particular person, go to that user's profile page and use the search option on the right, searching the title or a main keyword, and it'll pull up.

      Aficionada posted about this before - the search function is useless for Hubbers with lots of Hubs.

      For instance, I wanted to find a Hub by Hal Licino about Windows Vista.  He's written lots of techie Hubs so a search returned pages of results - and there was no way I could narrow it down to Hubs with Vista in the title

      Another example - I wanted to find a Hub by embitca about using photos.  I tried several combinations of words, but as she had used the word "photo" in photo credits on most of her Hubs, I kept getting pages of results.  I finally found it by searching for "copyright photo" - but it was a complete fluke, because the word "copyright" just happened to be used in the Hub, in a separate paragraph from the word "photo".

        Marisa you make some great points here !

    Boy, I second this idea.  It's very hard to find your hubs when you have more than say 50.  Maybe there could be an area where they are listed alphabetically?

      Go to your stats page. Click on the word "Title"

    Your profile allows you to amend your profile as often as you want. As far as I am aware there is no limit to how much information you place in your profile. With these two points in mind why not do what I do and place links to your hubs in categorised lists within your profile description where you decide the category and the order in which the hubs are arranged - you can also decide to show a hub in more than one of your categories.
    Why do you need hubpages to do all the work for you?

      Huh?  I never suggested that HubPages should do all the work.  I spotted an apparent technical problem: my hubs appeared to be totally hidden until someone clicks "more."  I was concerned because a visitor might not think to click on "more," ESPECIALLY when it doesn't look like I have any hubs at all.  The problem seems to be fixed now.

      But thanks for the profile suggestion; I'll keep that in mind as I write more and more hubs.
