Photo Capsule Problem

    When I insert a souce url in the photo capsule, it does not show on the hub. I have only seen two of these, but haven't had time to check my others. Here are two hubs that I know have this problem.

    http://barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/How … g-Pumpkins

    http://barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/How … kunk-Odors which is in the editing process.

    Because I am in the Apprenticeship program and have been told that I'll lose my status if I don't have the source urls, this is important. Thank you. Barb

      I'm sorry to hear that, Barbara Kay! Have you tried doing this in a different browser? Also, is it loading in the capsule but then not loading when you save the capsule? The more we know, the better.

      I just looked at your pumpkin Hub and see the following two images.

      http://s1.hubimg.com/u/7813156_f260.jpg

      Both have source image URLs.

      I looked at the Hub in edit view as well and see both URLs.
      Please let us know if perhaps there is a different issue you are encountering.

        This is all that is showing for me under the photos.

        No urls are showing. It was actually Simone that pointed it out to me, so I don't think it is my browser.

        I am working on a new hub and I am having the same problem.

          Have you tried clearing your browser cache and/or a different browser like Firefox?

          Can you provide a screenshot?
          If so, we can do further research to determine if this needs to be forwarded to our engineering team.

            I am having problems with saving the screen. It does show as a contextual link, but I think Simone wants to see the url link. That is what normally shows. I tried this in both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.

              I want to see the contextual link, not the URL. In the source box, what I look for is [Image owner/creator name], [license type], via [source site/company]

                Thanks Simone. You said I didn't have the link under the photo and I had copied and pasted it in the capsule where it belonged. This is where the confusion began. It must have been some kind of fluke.

    Looking at the hub photos, both pumpkin pics show the source as a textual link.  Both links work, taking me to the appropriate photo on wikimedia commons. 

    Is that what you're talking about?  Thinking back, I don't recall those kinds of links working in edit mode, though...

    I think I know what you are referring to and have been a little confused by it too.  In the photo capsule, when you enter the Source as John Doe and the URL as www.freedigitalphotos.net (for example) the credit appears as a hyperlink under the photo that reads John Doe but takes it you to www.freedigitalphotos.net.  The problem is that there is no text citation of the URL.  Because of this, I have to enter the URL in the Source and thus not hyperlink it.

    It depends what you want the reader to see. Apprentices are required to fill in the "Source url," but that is intended for computers rather than people (i.e. butt-ugly). When you *also* include the "Name of Source," that becomes the anchor text for the url. In any case, you don't want to place the url in the caption box.

    For more detail on what happens if you leave any of these boxes empty or for how to use them to good effect in special situations, see the following section of my hub on Photo Capsule Advanced Layout Techniques: http://howards.hubpages.com/hub/Photo-C … d_16337590

    Here are the specific Apprentice photo attribution requirements: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/lega … d_18657814
    Sections preceding that link tell how to do it for photos from various sources.
