Don’t get me wrong, I like hubpages, but I wanted air a suggestion.
When I want to link one of my articles to another hubpage, or an article from another source, I wish we had the opportunity to link it to a ‘paragraph within that article’, instead of the complete article link on the address bar. Like it’s possible on the Wikinut.com writing platform.
It’s also a good point to have paragraph heading links showing up when visitors click on a hub page article, again like on Wikinut.com. It shows a visitor the direct section within that article.
Just an idea.
I have no idea what that entails in the setup of the capsules, maybe again one more option?
Please let me know what others think.
You can actually do that.
You can create a table of contents for the hub you wish to link to. Using the same page source, link back to the text box from the hub you are linking from.
Here are some tutorials on how to create a table of contents for your hub.
Oh really? I never knew that! thank you I will look into that.
There's more information about how to create the links on this Forum thread, too:
Actually, I hadn't thought about this until you mentioned it. It would be a good idea, but I fear it would be hard to actually enable.
I haven't seen this feature on any of the sites I am a member of, so will assume that this may not be technologically possible at this time.
You can link to a specific section of a hub, just have to use the right link; you right click on the hub and go to view page source; hit contol f and type in the section you want; just beofre the section there will be mod_ and then a bunch of numbers I think; write that down; then the link you would use is the link to the hub but right after the name o the hub you use the hashtag (#) thingy and the mod_ dot dot dee thingy. It will take the reader to that section. Hope I didn't leave anything out, been awhile since I've done it.
Thank you all for your reply. I gave it a go by following all your suggestions but after 30 min I gave up. I could just never find the paragraph links when I did a R click.
I hope that hubpages one day will create an automatic paragraph heading link as a capsule, like wikinut.com have done.
I do not have the time to do all that extra work. I feel that is a job for the Hubpages code writing team.
No wonder I have not seen any table of contents in the hubs I've been following and responded to.
Many thanks anyway

It would be really cool to add a table of contents to hubs and click through sections. So extremely long hubs would allow someone to click the link in the TOC and take them to that section.Actually, I have seen someone...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the...

We've realized for a while that with our existing tools it can be very time consuming to manage links across a large portfolio of hubs. Many Hubbers have tried to handle the interconnecting of related hubs using...

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a...
