As Simone had mentioned last year, we’ve been working on updating the design of HubPages in an effort to enhance readers’ experience interacting with your Hubs and the site. The recent header revamp was the first rolled-out step in this process.
Part of this process involves retiring features that aren’t popularly used, in order to minimize distraction and engineering maintenance work, and to make more room for those features that readers and Hubbers will find useful. One of the features that hasn’t been used that much and will be retired soon is bookmarks. As of today, the ability to bookmark a Hub by clicking on a link on the Hub has been phased out.
Any bookmarks you have are still accessible, but we will eventually be discontinuing this feature, too. We will provide a facility for you to download all of your HubPages bookmarks, for importing into your browser, before that time. This will be made available to any Hubber with bookmarks before we sunset the bookmark feature. We don’t have an ETA on this yet, but we will give you ample warning as the date approaches.
Thank you for your understanding in the matter, and we look forward to unveiling an updated Hub layout in the near future.
UPDATE: You can now download your bookmarks by clicking the “Export Bookmarks as HTML” button in the Bookmarks section of My Account > Activity.
