I would love to be able to group my hubs together in different ways and to have a chronological view.
Of course I can do this manually, but wouldn't it be nice if HP had a professional looking capsule that we all could use and that visitors would come to recognize as the way to navigate our hubs.
I'm thinking it should ask for a title, which we'd fill in with "Technology Hub", "By Date" or whatever, and we'd then choose two of our hubs - one for "Next" and one for "Previous"
I'd like to also see a link for "All".
So, replete with suitable fonts and coloration, it would look like
Previous in Technology Hubs (Building your own lie detector) - List All Technology Hubs by this author - Next in Technology Hubs (How to by an Anti-Matter Ray Gun)
We could then add as many of these as we needed when a particular hub fits into multiple places (though I might suggest that three of this kind of link is probably enough)
I'm a little confused.
We have the 'more' button on our profile page.
Also we can group hubs so there is a link at the bottom to see more hubs in that group - although I'd like to see that link in a more prominent place.
Or you can use RSS feeds.
Can you expand more on why this isn't the same as groups?
You can only put a hub in one group.
That link at the bottom that should be more prominent is what I'm talking about, except this would let you create multiple linking schemes for a page (though as I said, you wouldn't want to overdo it)
So, my Hub about the iPad could have a link to "Next Review" (and "Previous", of course) as well as "Next 'Puter Stuff")
Also, with this, when you reached the end of a group, your "Next" could come back to the beginning of the group - or link to something else entirely.
These capsules would require more maintenance than groups, but would be much more flexible and would also have the advantage that you can control their placement - you might want to follow them with some closing text for aesthetic value, for example.
I like the idea. Even if they upgraded how groups worked a little. It's bugged me before that a hub can only be put in one group and that groups aren't more obvious to readers.
You could do this just by extending how groups work, but I like the idea of a capsule because it is more flexible (albeit more work for the hubber).

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...

This may be a bit difficult, but may result in more hits overall. Would it be possible to make a more COMPLICATED link capsule, that has some intelligence to it? For example, lets say I have a group of a dozen hubs....

The new Text Capsule has been well received and we believe we've fixed all outstanding bugs (thank you, by the way, for those who gave us feedback).We'd like to retire the old Text Capsule in the coming weeks, so please...

Is it possible to add a feature to links within text and to the photos to opt to have the link open in a new window? This would allow the reader to stay on the original page. Bounce rates rise every time someone leaves...

On my newest hub, I notice there are no Next/Last hubs being shown at the bottom of my newest hubs. These are the hubs that are in the same "group" as the published hub. I'm not sure why they're missing? The...
