What's going on with Wizzley?

    Every time I go there, I get redirected to http://pagewizz.com.  I'm guessing that's the German version?  Anybody know what's going on?

      Big update. It looks like the magazine style update Hubpages attempted but then abandoned, It is a very smart look. Shame about the traffic...

      Live already, where I am.

        Not sure whether I like it or not. It looks like a 'blogspot' gallery blog.....

      overhaul of their system, I think wizzley is managed by some Germans. They are trying to improve their site overall, I think!

    I've still got the German version at present.  I like Wizzley, but traffic and earnings there don't seem good, like Will says.  I've not put my strongest material up there, though, I'll admit.  Adsense earnings are also low across all sites, as far as I can tell at the mo.

        I'm not on Wizzley, so I just checked it out.  I see they have 'You Might Also Like' links at the close of the article.  I don't know what it looked like before, but I think the pages look fine.  Did the authors have a choice for the backgrounds?  Some of the backgrounds make it look more like a blog page.

          I think everyone's reacting to the Google changes, introducing slimmed down website designs.

          Yes, as a user, you pick a colour and a pattern for the background.

          Fatal, giving users a choice...

          Lets face it, most people like plastic Santa's on the roof come Xmas.

            Well the Wizzley options are pretty basic, so it's difficult for a user to do anything too extreme or ugly.  With Squidoo, on the other hand, there  probably is a Santa on the roof option, and if there isn't, they will introduce one.  smile

              And if there isn't, the evil purveyor of CSS border colors will help them build one! smile

              *hides my old CSS tricks lens behind back, looking vaguely guilty*

              I never expected that people would use ALL the CSS styles at once on the same paragraph. Whoopsie.

    I've been trying for two days to get on Wizzley. Keeps saying they are online but cannot connect. What gives?

    I just typed www.wizzley.com into my browser and a page full of article choices popped right up, along with an invite for me to become an author.
