So I'm going through my Hubs and making sure they are mobile/desktop friendly. I noticed that a lot of my hub capsules have ridiculous amounts of spaces to them after the paragraph ends. It makes it so there is a bunch of white space between the sections of my Hubs. Has anyone else noticed this? It's pretty weird.
Try putting your cursor on the last full stop in your paragraph to make sure that you did not perhaps leave a few lines of white space below the stop before continuing with the hub.
The new one was featured in a few hours after I posted it. But I didn't realize about 8 of my older hubs were no longer featured, or had that half circle symbol. I fixed them up as best I could, and my score went up today. Some of them had that white space, but after 4 yrs. here I've fixed all those. They were picked to be not featured for various reasons. I did what I could to fix them, but writerly wise, I couldn't do a lot with a few of them.
Yes, the white spaces showed up about a year or so ago when they were making the hub format more friendly for reading on mobile devices.
If you have to much white space in your capsules go into edit of that capsule, Click HTML on the far left.
You should only have one </p> after the last word in the last paragraph. If you have more, delete the extra ones. That should take care of the white space in the capsule.
Hope I understood exactly what your saying. This is the only way I know to get rid of white space.
I noticed that on a couple of my articles, right after they came to HP from Squidoo. I clicked on the text capsules in question, and noticed that I did have some empty spaces that were there, after the last sentence of text in each capsule. I simply backed the cursor up to where the text should end, and that eliminated the issue.
Sallybea's excellent suggestion is probably the answer to your issue.
What is weird is I am not a squidoo transfer! Haha. I haven't went through the capsules to each Hub since I posted them, and when I posted them they certainly were not like that! I fixed them up and they look a hell of a lot better!
I have noticed large white spaces on several of my hubs today tool. They were also unfeatured as well. They are all ones I wrote about 3 years ago, and didn't get a lot of engagement, but there isn't much I can add to the information. I just added a new hub, and now I'm almost sorry I bothered. If you write a book review, it isn't going to change, I can't add more except maybe a few more books by the same author. But then they will say I added too many Amazon capsules.
OMG, Fred Ardnold, yes! I'm so glad you posted this. It's been bothering me for a couple weeks. I've been deleting capsules, rearranging capsules, and reformatting the hubs to fix them. I have also found that some of the spaces are not permanent. The capsules move slowly like there's a delay in the entire hub showing hub. Sounds like a glitch.
Edit: You may want to post this under Technical Problems. It's not the issue others are referring to where we sometimes leave too much space at the bottom of the capsule when we create the hub. It has to do with space between capsules and formatting.
Sometimes it has to do with adding too many capsules like photo or Amazon that will exceed the length of the adjacent text. I've noticed this on a lot of hubs with white space on the area above the "fold". It also has to do with too many carriage returns at the end of the text as others have pointed out.

I am becoming frustrated. I cannot get my photos to align with my text capsules. There was a white gaping space between one text capsule and the relevant link. So I clicked "don't display" on all photos and...

I know everyone has their own pet peeves about Hubs. What are some of yours?One of mine is poor lay out. Things like not deleting the spaces at the end of a text capsule, so that it causes unnatural white...

Has anyone figured out a way to make the white space between text capsules go away? And how about the abnormally large run-arounds (white space) for photos? I've tinkered incessantly but can't seem to fix these. Why...
