The new topic templates look very nice, however I would like to be able to format hubs my own way.
Do we have to keep the prescribed topic templates the way they have been formatted in order to have our hubs published? Or can we still do them free-form?
Hi Stove And Home,
The Topic Templates provide general guidelines on creating an excellent, media-rich Hub, but feel free to move and change the capsules to get your Hubs looking the way you want them.
I have selected the regular article format instead of the template on several articles and have been published. I think the template is intended to encourage writers to use all the form elements available, and is not laid down by law as a format to use. To me, l look at laying out an article has part of the creative process, so I like to do it my way.
Thank you too. I completely missed that. Hope you guys have a good day!
Stellar hubs get a lot more traffic then normal ones, one Stellar Hub can be worth ten other ones. Google loves high-quality articles and hubs, so they will rank some of the best on the first page.
No. there is still the standard article template that shows up just to the right of the new article template. If you click that you can go back to the old way of doing things. Also, even in the new template, it is easy to just delete modules that are not necessary.
You can format/layout your hubs in any way that you like. As long as your hubs are of great quality content and are well written and free of many typos or grammar issues, etc. they should be published regardless of what their layout is. Of course you cannot have an amazon capsule at the very top of the hub as the first capsule so stay away from doing that.

Has anyone else seen really weird pairings of hubs? I'm loving the new format and having another hub of mine appear on the side with the ads. Most of the pairings make sense, but I just noticed my hub about Edith...

Well, when you are suffering from depression and you opened your hubpages stats then you notice that 9 of your supposed to be featured hubs got unfeatured due to lack of traffic.. Very disappointing indeed but, can you...

As a consequence of seeing a post in the political and social area discussions, I decided to do a Hub Pages search for marijuana. There are quite a few published hubs about it. So, are Hubbers allowed to write about it,...

My two cents on the featured hubs categories. Although I am not a big fan of featured/not featured categories, I must admit that I have 560 hubs and all of them are featured. Every single hub that I have written...
