I think there's an issue with CSS. Site is slow to load and it looks like it's a CSS thing.
Here's a fun, recursive looking picture of the problem.
I was getting worried, as none of my HP pages would load properly, and bots are hitting my accounts with 100s of empty hits with zero read time.
I thought HP was under attack!
Yep, HP go boom.
Chrome and firefox.
In fact, I managed to post this while still in boom mode.
Hey! This is freaky. Welcome to my world of white.
"Let's go to San Francisco
Where the flowers grow...."
Hurray, we are back. I'm going to go look to see what they changed.
Uh-oh. Looks like hubs are still squirrelly... Google Chrome.
This happened both on my Android phone and now on my computer (in Google Chrome)...
I love these HP adventures.
As long as the hubs don't stay down too long...
Looks like hubs are back now, too. (firefox)
Still look wacky to me in Firefox.
Hmmm. And we are both on the west coast.
You are right. Mine's gone squirrely again, too.
I had a major panic attack when I went to go approve a comment on a hub and my hub looked like this:
I hope this is a very temporary glitch!
I'm on the East Coast and they look crazy with Chrome and IE.
HP must be working on something. The stats on hubs will not open now. I tried this on several hubs.
I did notice that HP added the last update to hubs.
I'm in the UK. Looking crazy here on and off.
Yep, everything went squirrelly again here as well.
I can't wait to see what they are coming up with.
Looks like everything ok again. I think I'll start a new hub and not make backups.
Still wacky over here - including the forum. I have a feeling this might take a little while. I clicked on my hub and thought, well THIS is an interesting new look! LOL.
You are right. Down again. Leastwise, this time I got this, "Something went wrong. Please try again. And when you get a chance, you may want to report this issue in the Hubpages forums."
Should we tell them?
Oh my I am glad I found this post, finally!!! I was having a major panic attack and thought my comp had gone kaput!!!!
I sure wouldn't want to be in that shop right now...
Hang in there, HP. We are with you!!!
Having the same issue, just like I have many times in the past. But this is the first time I see anyone report it. Anyway, I hope HP stops tinkering with whatever they are tinkering with and turns CSS back on.
I just got a foreign language spam that I hadn't seen in awhile. Probably not related, but thought I'd mention it.
Just got a second one. I wonder if we are under another spam attack that is helping to muck things up...
And things still keep switching back and forth between ok and not.
It's my fault.
"Hey, what does this button do?"
I really do think it is time that the HP programming geeks went on holiday and left this site alone!
Nothing of value has been added in the 2 years I have been here. We just get more and more crap stuffed down our throats as well as having the site made unusable while the muck is being uploaded
In the meantime, viewers are leaving HP in droves.
The problem is not the cosmetic appearance of pages. If a page has useful information, how it looks is secondary.
The problem is the spun and spam crap that is constantly being uploaded, which the HP owners consistently refuse to tackle.
oh good, I thought it was just my computer! Wow, this is the second time I've seen this happen. It scared the you know what out of me!!
I thought sure I crashed my own site. This sort of thing can happen on big sites with a lot of traffic. Thanks for fixing it, HP!
"is down for maintenance Please check back in a few minutes"
I see this problem still isn't over yet. The site is still sluggish; and am still getting error messages. Google Chrome.
update: and Firefox
Anybody else getting this fun screen?? And TONS of error messages!
Nope, but I get an error message every time I try to comment in a hub :-(
I've been getting error messages every time I try to load a page, and every other time I try to load a page I get that fun blue screen. At least it's my favorite color! lmao

For the last 6 hours or so, I have been unable to navigate the site properly. I cannot access my articles except by following an unusual route and when I do access them I am unable to edit. Is everyone having the same issue? I notice that some people have managed to publish hubs, whereas I...

Do you believe Chrome is no more a reliable browser for our computers?Since some months, after the major changes done by Google, my computer is experiencing recurring problems and glitches in loading websites and files. Pages are not loading properly and double columns or triple columns appearing...

I have been experiencing problems trying to post comments. When I finish writing the comment it doesn't post and the screen returns to the top of the hub. Anyone in my boat?

I have used all of these and found firefox good, but not as chrome, IE is losing its position. One problem I faced with chrome is, it crashes after sometime...Which one is best ?
