Ebay capsule isn't wrapping

    In the edit screen is appears to wrap, but it's not wrapping when done editing/published. It was when published, but now it's not, as least for one of my hubs..

    In case, you need to see an example: http://hubpages.com/hub/Halloween-Home-Decorations

    Yes, capsule wrapping has been wonky for about a week or two.  It looks fine in the edit, but in the preview or after editing/publishing it does its own sweet thing.  I hadn't noticed it was eBay capsules in particular, but maybe it is.  It's certainly not happening with every capsule.  But when it happens, it persists--there's no getting the capsule to be where you want it to be. It used to be totally reliable.  Something's changed...

    Whitney, I see two eBay capsules side-by-side near the bottom of your hub, in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Is that not what you intended? Is it sometimes rendering differently for you? I'm afraid I'm not understanding the problem.

      It seems to be working now, but before the capsule on the left was beneath the right aligned capsule. The title was directly to the left, but all of the products were pushed to the bottom.

      Like Janet said, it's sporadic apparently. I have seen it in other hubs.

    Earlier, right after this thread was posted I looked at it and it was messed up. It does seem to be working now. I use IE browser.

    I am having the same problem on one of my hubs, however, it is sporadic. It is fine one minute and wacky the next....

    I think that may be caused by long product titles that don't have any spaces in them.

    These had spaces. The one that weren't wrapping, that is.

      Please post a link to this thread the next time you see one.  The products tend to scroll through fairly quickly on eBay capsules.

        Paul, here is a hub of mine that has this probelm,
        http://hubpages.com/hub/Taylor-Swift-Gifts

        However, sometimes it fixes itself.

          Thanks.  That issue is being caused by too many consecutive characters without a break in the product listing, this one specifically:

          4 TAYLOR SWIFT TICKETS**MINNEAPOLIS**TARGET**SEC. 230

          We can probably come up with a solution for that.
