I know, I'm stupid at times. I'm just not computer literate but I'm learning. Snickers are allowed
How about candy Snickers? I'm hungry.
You can give a Text Capsule (and some other capsules) a blue background by making it float to the right (a requirement for the different backgrounds) and selecting from the two alternate color options (they appear to the left, under the subtitle and above the text input area).
Do you mean linked words? They come up with blue text... You just have to highlight the word during editing and push the button that looks like a chain. It'll give you somewhere to write in the link address. Otherwise if you are just looking for blue text I am clueless.
Yup, that's what I mean. I have to laugh at myself sometimes. Thank you.
No problem, we all have to start somewhere.
thanks, figured it out too:)
off topic, I had to laugh! On my new hub about saving money on groceries google posted an ad for 'high end' home furnishings. If you don't have enough money for groceries....
guess I won't be seeing much traffic from that link...lol
I am also new to online writing, I've been trying to link words too.., I can't find the button your talking about. What's it called? I had that dumb question too Sarra! Your not the only one.
I'm so glad I can ask dumb questions and get good answers. LMAO. Must be my silver hair, yeah, I'll blame it on that.
After submitting 8 hubs I had finally figured out how to link words.
Theophanes has the information you need to create a hyperlink (hey - I had the 'blue words' question early on, too!). One nice feature is that if you're linking to one of your own hubs, after that hub's title is in HP's system, it will drop down as a choice. You just click on it and it is hyperlinked. The drop-down hubs will relate to the words you are hyperlinking - so if you have a hub for a good entree recipe and want to link to a hub you wrote that has a good salad recipe to go with it, make sure the 'blue' words will relate to the title, and your hub should pop up.
You can also see hubs from other writers. And, as Theophanes, said, there's a field where you can just insert a URL (to link to another website, or to insert a hub that is too new to pop up automatically.
The 'chain' icon appears in the toolbar after you highlight the words in your text. To undo a linked page, just highlight it again, and click on the 'broken' link, and it will go away.
Hope this helps!
You're going to want to read this page,
If you are referring to using words in your hub as links (which appear in blue color)... you'd have to edit capsule, select word or phrase you want to use as a link and then click on the link icon and proceed from there by entering the URL (link) and clicking to create the link. Doing so will make that word or phrase blue in color and clicking on it will take visitors to that link you specified. If you just want to make a word blue without creating a link as far as I know that is not possible here on Hub.
I'm not sure if you can do it in your Hub text capsule, but here in the forums, you can make part of your reply in the standard colors..red, green, blue, violet, orange, etc., or any hex coded color [#nnnnnn], just by inserting the following code into your reply:
[ color = blue ] Hey...I just turned blue! [ /color ]
note: I had to add spaces inside the braces, so you could see the code, so be sure and remove all the spaces inside the braces. Anyway, this is how it actually looks below:
Hey...I just turned blue!
Here's a neat utility to pick your own hex color. Just replace the word 'blue' in the previous code above, with the hex number you see at colorpicker.com. Be sure to include the hash mark [#] at the beginning. Have fun.
Just don't go nuts with it, huh? It makes me eyes hurt...
TMI _ timourous. most of us get a headache trying to do those things.
I have been wondering too about blue words. I have seen other hubs have blue words for quotes etc. and don't think they were links. I love the look...classy!

I have been using the 'suggest links' tool on most of my hubs, and I think it is great. But there are a few links I would like to edit or delete, and I can't find a way of doing it. Does anyone know whether this can be...

Really cool to see that my hub, <link snipped>, was just picked as Editor's Choice. Can anyone tell me what it means, and maybe how to capitalize on or leverage this bump?Thanks!

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours...

The new Text Capsule has been well received and we believe we've fixed all outstanding bugs (thank you, by the way, for those who gave us feedback).We'd like to retire the old Text Capsule in the coming weeks, so please...
