We here at Colbert News Hub are fortunate enough to have a wonderful community, and I have no intentions of putting a stop to the Hub any time soon.

Site News: And We’re Back!

Colbert News Hub Updates In what I can only describe as being more stressful than trying to get giant panda’s to mate, getting the Hub back up and running has been one stress filled adventure. After many many hours of tech support help from the ever wonderfully patient Michael, and Jeffery and Christopher from Hostgator tech support, we have managed to iron out the errors caused by the recent WordPress update and get the site back up and running.

There may still be a few errors present, so please bear with us while we continue to check over the site and ensure that all errors, issues and anomalies are addressed. If you come across any problems on your travels around the Hub, please shoot me an email just in case we’re am not aware of that particular issue.

A big thank you to CNHelper for manning the Hub Dash and updating the site throughout our Hubpocolypse. Finally, thank you to everyone for their patience during this period. We have done our best to keep you up-to-date with the latest Colbert news through our social media accounts, but don’t fear we still have plenty of goodies to share with you over the next few days.
