We deployed a small update to the site today. It contained a lot of minor changes and bug fixes, but also a couple of notable things:
- In the comments capsule you can now prevent future comments without losing your existing comments. Just edit the capsule and check the appropriate box.
- We've also added a page where you can see the entire topics tree in one place. Sometimes it can be hard to fine the topic you want, this might help some people. Topic pages begin to "exist" once there are 5 hubs in them. Until then the link will be grayed out, but remember hubs can appear on any topic page that is above them in the tree.
As usual, please let us know if you see anything strange with these new features or elsewhere.
I like the topic tree but have one suggestion...Is there a way to list the Main Topic first and then a drop down from there?
This way one does not have to go wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy down the page if your topic is a mile away. I tried the scrolling down to get to Sports and passed over what I was looking for several times. Backed up, went too far, back and forth.
If you use Firefox, just type a / before what you're looking for. So for sports...
Click on the background of the page or anywhere on the page where there is no link. Then type /
a box will pop up where you can type sports and it will take you right where you're looking.
Alternatively you can do Ctrl + F which works in both Firefox and IE.
Nice one! I like these updates a lot, especially the ability to turn off comments, but not lose the old ones. Thanks
Thanks for the updates. Those sound nice.
Great updates - thanks for constantly working hard to improve our HP experience!
This was a GREAT idea. It'll be very helpful in coming up with ideas. Thank you for the change.
I have a question, if I have a topic for a category, how do I do so.
For example, if I wanted to write a hub on:
Technology > Computer Science and Programming > Programming Languages > Perl
How do I suggest the Perl category as their currently isn't one. I know their isn't a lot on the site right now in the programming languages category so it almost wouldn't be worth adding further categories, but I do a few hubs-to-be that will be written for categories that do not exist yet.
the topic tree is great. I like that it gives the # of hubs.
the page numbers look darker and some text also.. ?
Thanks HubPages staff for continuing to make this site the best ever!!!
These are very useful feature additions that I will be sure to look at very soon. Thanks a lot for all of you in the HP Staff do for the community!
I like the topic tree - interesting to see what topics get the most attention in any given category.
We should get a hubber effort going to fill in the rest of the chart so every topic has at least five hubs. Some of the underrepresented topics are pretty interesting, actually.
This updates sound great. I especially think the topic tree is good as you can look at it before you write a hub. If there are already several with your topic you would have to decide if you had new information or if it is worth writing.
Where is an easy link to the topic tree page-- other than in this post?
I think that's a good place (I don't think I ever looked at the topics page before.)
Thank you for your constant updates and improvements! The Hubpages staff are the BEST!
Cool, both are very minor but still useful!
I love it when you guys keep updating the site and improving it - keep up the good work!
