Large Amazon capsules in my hubs.

    Several of my hubs have very large Amazon capsules in them. I have not seen this before. Is this a new thing Amazon or HubPages has implemented or is it a technical issue? It looks really spammy.

      I see these only in "edit" mode and when I save the Hub, the size returns to the usual dimensions.

        I have noticed the same as Patty mentioned. I think preview give a better scale than the initial writing interface.

        Mine stay large even after I save. I have been deleting the over sized capsules - they are very distracting and spammy.

          Yes, I agree. They don't look nice at all. I've been keeping them that way because I feel that readers need to have SOME idea of what the book looks like, but . . . . :-(

        I wish that worked for me. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with what these huge, clumsy images that don't even show the entire book cover. I really hate them!

      Sorry you are having problems with a product capsule.

      I just checked and a few Hubs with Amazon product capsules and did not see any issues in either the HubTool or viewing the published Hubs using Firefox in Windows.

      I would suggest upgrading your browser, clearing your browser cache, and restarting your computer.
      If you are still seeing formatting issues after doing so, please email us at team@hubpages.com and include the following.
      Browser(s) and versions in which you are seeing the issue.
      Operating system you are using.
      The URL and/or title of the Hub or Hubs in question.

      Yes, it's new, and I hate it. It makes me desperately frustrated and disgusted.

          Yes, thanks, Matthew.

          I did see this yesterday, right before I had to stop working in order to get a bus. I'm anxious to try your suggestions.

          I mostly use public computers ---in universities, libraries, etc. --- so I may not have all the access to the information you request here.

          I'll send what I have, though.

          Thanks again.

        It is a glitch. Read Matthew's post above and his advice.

    OK,  good to know 'cause I saw this too and thought "Holy cow' how can this product be so big! Tried to shrink to no avail.
