I've been on HP for a while now and I have to say that, over and over, I have tried typing in someone's name in hopes of getting to their profile and they don't come up.
Is there a simple way to find hubbers via the search thing and I have just managed to miss its obvious function or is it actually pretty damn hard to just type in a hubber's name somewhere and easily get to their main profile page?
If it's not just me, can I ask why this is after all this time?
If it is just me, well, I will point out that I am horrendously lazy and that I drink, so, those two things coupled with a general and inexplicable ability to miss the obvious will explain my predicament and should not, I hope, make anyone hold back on pointing me to the easy answer I have consistently missed.
I type in the name. Then when I get to the list of results I click 'hubber' on the right hand side. You'll be taken to a list of profiles containing just that search term.
Wow.... You have done well! I wish I could just find my key when I'm drinking.. finding the keyboard would be almost impossible!
I always just go to the top right and select "more" from the drop down menu next to the search box.
This takes you to "advanced search."
You don't need to put in all the criteria here, just type in the hubbers name in the blank search box and select "hubbers" from the drop down menu next to it.
It does seem a bit round-a-bout, I suppose, but its really only 3 steps. (drop down, type name, drop down - hmmmm that sounds like some sort of weird military drill... )
Hey Shades, before you type the hubber's name in, click on hubbers. Don't just try and plug their name into the search bar, when you're on the forums. It will only list what forum posts they are linked to.
Always remember to click "hubbers" first. Then entered the name.
Right you are Cags.
btw, he's talking about the 'Hubbers' menu item at the top of the page. You can search your hubber's name from there. Easy as pie.

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,...

I am a new Hubber. How can I search out other new Hubbers?Is there a way to use the search box to find newcomers to HubPages?

Have you noticed that you must be signed in to click on a hubber's name to go to their hubs? This does not seem good to me; it keeps readers from spotting hubbers they may want to check out and the traffic we are after is non-hubbers isn't it? So they would never be signed in. This seems an issue...

What has happened to the search function??!!It used to be easy, and intuitive to use; we could look up a category, title, or author by name or pen name, and it would be found, or come close enough to easily find.Now, the search function is totally useless! No categories come up, unless you...

I went to my Global Comment Moderation Page just now to check if I have any new comments. To my surprise I saw a whole lot of them. But then upon closer scrutiny I noticed they are all mine, comments I left in other people's hubs as far back as three years ago. EDIT: Additional info: I realize...

I'm finding duplicate content from a new hubber... AWKWARD!!!!! Not sure what to do, really. Plus, how can I be sure new hubber isn't departed hubber? I'd just really want someone to have my back and cover me even if I'd left and someone was taking my stuff. Anyway, what...
