"/-\" Missing a summary?? What the? Where's the capsule?

    So, apparently every single one of my hubs now has a new deficiency - it's "missing a summary".

    How do I add this?

    Where do I add this?

    In which capsule is this placed?

    Where is that capsule located?

    On AC (only for example!), it gives you a (field?) in which to briefly describe your piece.  Same for Bukisa.  TIBU is no more, your blog is your business.  NLDline is formatted such that the summary is a given based on the category - and as you might guess, has a very specific readership demographic anyway.  MySnot - well, is just plain irrelevant.  Helium asks for no such summary other than that which would be included as a part of good solid writing *within* the piece.

    So - whutta I gotta do? wink

    Unless "A" is a very good grade, I don't want my menu stained with 'em!

    Thanks very much.

      Hi Stan!  When in edit mode in one of your hubs, to the right is a column and at the top is Add More Capsules. Under that is the Tip box, and under that is a box with 5 links as headers. The fourth one is "Summary". Clicking that opens a box in which to put your summary for that hub.

      When in edit mode for the hub, look to the right - the summary button is in the same area as the button to add tags.

      Click edit on any hub, then look to the right hand side to where it says
      Summary (it will be alongside other options)

      Click summary, then type a suitable introduction into the box.

      Wow - thank you, folks.  Both for your clear answers (I found the 'summary' thing), and for answering *so* quickly!

      Now gonna swallow hard and see if it's actually easy to do.  I hope the "doing" isn't gonna require as much "intuition" or tutorial as finding the darn thing. 

      Cues!  I need cues and articulated directions, da*n it!  Ooops, sorry - got carried away.  Oh - wait - golly, THIS isn't the NLD forum - my bad!   

      Thanks again, folks.

    I'm a bit miffed!

    I wrote about this change a couple of months ago and hardly anyone noticed.

    Probably because I can't write very well, sorry folks, I tried!

      In my case - and you'd have to read my bio and several pieces to begin to understand why, you'd have had to personally email me about such a change, and likely endure several correspondences from me as I tried to figure what-all you were talking about.

      I'm sure your writing was fine.  But for me it's like this:  If I'm driving along the road and I'm *DETERMINED* and *POSSESSED* to absolutely NOT MISS my destination (likely new) - I'm looking for ONE thing - "Okay - 123 Main Street, 123 Main Street, 123 Main Street.".....

      I literaly - yes *literally* will miss seeing almost everything else.  Well, whatever the second step is from entering the eye to being "stamped" in the brain.  No stamping.  I'm looking for 123 Main Street and that is IT!

      "Fire?  There was  fire?  Where?"

      "No way!  A naked guy was running down the sidewalk??  I guess it must have been on the even-numbered side of the street!"

      wink
