    On the create a new hub "page", when I type my title, I select my category which does not give me the usual subcategories.

    I can only input two tags.

    When I click continue, the page refreshes and I am not taken to the usual page where I am told that spam will be deleted and copied content is prohibited etc.

    The new hub refuses to be created!

        I haven't tried to start a new hub today at all so sorry can't comment on that aspect, but just wanted to say to PokeHarvest that the quickest way to get a Google Adsense account still, is to start a blogger blog, put up a few posts and apply through Blogger (which Google owns).
        Assuming you are not from a country with the six months wait, that is.

        I went back....being the determined person I am.....and tried the simplified version and it worked after a few attempts. You guys can try that. I don't like the simplified version at all.

          I'm not to wild about the simplified version either.

      Cardisa,

      Thank you for reporting this.  We are looking into it now.

      In the meantime, you can still create a new Hub using our simplified Hub Tool: http://hubpages.com/hubtool/accessible/

    Glad to see I'm not the only one having this problem!  I tried to use the simplified version, but I'm not smart enough.  Maybe I'm just spoiled. I'll wait to get answers about this.

      I've never even SEEN the simplified tool before - how mad is that?

      Anyway, it looks like it doesn't autofill the url address, and maybe this is your sticking point.

      But all you need to put in is your subdomain - http://mary615.hubpages.com/ followed by hub/ and then the title which as it says needs underscore or dashes.

      So if your hub is entitled (for example) Hard Boiled Eggs - then you could use HardBoiledEggs, Hard-Boiled-Eggs, or Hard_Boiled_Eggs to name but three (I'm sure there are more).

      Pick one - say HardBoiledEggs, then your url will be

      http://mary615.hubpages.com/hub/HardBoiledEggs

      It is easy, honestly.

        Yep, that was my sticking point.  I'll give it a try.  Don't know if that would make a difference in creating a new Hub, but I'll try.  Thanks.

    Also having problems with the video capsule. It lets me copy in the video url, but when you click view video nothing happens. When you close the capsule it appears as if you haven't done anything, but if you save unpublished, the videos pop into place. This is for both vimeo and youtube videos.

    I was able to do two today with no problems. I get so used to everything working so smoothly, that I'm surprised when they don't. Thanks for your quick response.

    When I was unable to start a new hub, my heart stopped!  I was afraid I'd been kicked out of HubPages for some reason.  These things happen when you're  dealing with software, etc. and I know that , but the engineers got it fixed very quickly , thanks to all.
