Maybe I missed an announcement, or maybe this is a glitch; but does anyone know about why no Hubs are found when searching from within someone's profile (our own or another Hubbers)? (because I sense a giant rant building up if this is someone's idea of adding quality to subdomains )
I think it's a glitch. Great - on a weekend. Please contact team@hubpages anyway, in case someone is checking it on the weekend. Maybe even post this in Report a Problem, instead of Hubber's Hangout.
I agree - sometimes it's hard to know what is considered a problem and what is not. But I think that this is something the engineers need to know about.
If a rant is appropriate, I'll rant along with you. The search function on HP is minimally acceptable, and I'll admit it has definitely improved over the years I've been here. The search function from a Hubber's profile is probably one of the best ways Search can be used here. I would hate to see that scrapped!!!!
I posted in the "report a problem" forum because I have been having trouble with the search feature for several days. Several times this week I have searched for recipes and also hubs with instructions to help me with my poor technical skills, and I've been getting messages that there is nothing to be found. I know internal views don't count for anything, but I'm trying to support my fellow hubbers by searching for and using their hubs, only to be told they don't exist. I'm hoping it will get fixed soon.
Aaarrrrgggghhhh - I really needed to search for something. Maybe I'll have to break down and use Google. No, no, no, say it isn't so!! Well, I'll try Bing first.
It took me a while to notice this too because I don't do searches that often but yes, I hope it gets fixed soon.
I just did one quickie search for one subject from my profile, and it looks like it's fixed (based only on that, though). If I recall correctly, it may now look different than it used to. Maybe they've been working on it for the last couple or days or so.

I have come across a **itload of spam in the forums recently, and a few as Hubs, now obviously its not anything new, and it most likely comes in ebbs and flows.But what do you do about it Hubbers?Do you zing it and nip it in the bud? Or just say 'meh' and float on through to the next hub / forum...

It has occurred to me (as, I'm sure to thousands of others throughout the generations) that our search for the spiritual is somewhat pointless and an exercise in futility.If there is a part of us that transcends this reality, a part of us that is eternal; then it stands to reason that this part of...

There seems to be one small problem with the new profile page image renewal. I've noticed that the 'featured hubs' section on the new profiles routinely moves through each of the hubs in turn, which is good. However, when it gets to the last featured hub, the entire section goes blank, and...

Wow! What do you do when someone writes a hub attacking you personally because you deleted a comment they posted to your hub?
