When I insert a souce url in the photo capsule, it does not show on the hub. I have only seen two of these, but haven't had time to check my others. Here are two hubs that I know have this problem.
http://barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/How … g-Pumpkins
http://barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/How … kunk-Odors which is in the editing process.
Because I am in the Apprenticeship program and have been told that I'll lose my status if I don't have the source urls, this is important. Thank you. Barb
I'm sorry to hear that, Barbara Kay! Have you tried doing this in a different browser? Also, is it loading in the capsule but then not loading when you save the capsule? The more we know, the better.
I just looked at your pumpkin Hub and see the following two images.
Both have source image URLs.

I looked at the Hub in edit view as well and see both URLs.
Please let us know if perhaps there is a different issue you are encountering.
This is all that is showing for me under the photos.
An Atlantic Giant Pumpkin grown in Japan. Usually these pumpkins are much larger.

No urls are showing. It was actually Simone that pointed it out to me, so I don't think it is my browser.
I am working on a new hub and I am having the same problem.
Have you tried clearing your browser cache and/or a different browser like Firefox?
Can you provide a screenshot?
If so, we can do further research to determine if this needs to be forwarded to our engineering team.
I am having problems with saving the screen. It does show as a contextual link, but I think Simone wants to see the url link. That is what normally shows. I tried this in both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
I want to see the contextual link, not the URL. In the source box, what I look for is [Image owner/creator name], [license type], via [source site/company]
Looking at the hub photos, both pumpkin pics show the source as a textual link. Both links work, taking me to the appropriate photo on wikimedia commons.
Is that what you're talking about? Thinking back, I don't recall those kinds of links working in edit mode, though...
I think I know what you are referring to and have been a little confused by it too. In the photo capsule, when you enter the Source as John Doe and the URL as www.freedigitalphotos.net (for example) the credit appears as a hyperlink under the photo that reads John Doe but takes it you to www.freedigitalphotos.net. The problem is that there is no text citation of the URL. Because of this, I have to enter the URL in the Source and thus not hyperlink it.
It depends what you want the reader to see. Apprentices are required to fill in the "Source url," but that is intended for computers rather than people (i.e. butt-ugly). When you *also* include the "Name of Source," that becomes the anchor text for the url. In any case, you don't want to place the url in the caption box.
For more detail on what happens if you leave any of these boxes empty or for how to use them to good effect in special situations, see the following section of my hub on Photo Capsule Advanced Layout Techniques: http://howards.hubpages.com/hub/Photo-C … d_16337590
Here are the specific Apprentice photo attribution requirements: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/lega … d_18657814
Sections preceding that link tell how to do it for photos from various sources.

I just tried to correct of couple of photo attributions. When I open the capsule in edit, the photo disappears. It won't let me upload another photo either. The capsule looks strange, no icon to click to upload. Is this possibly because the links are broken and photos are no longer available? I...

I found it very hard to work with it, almost impossible. As before I clicked on Computer, press Browse,and had the picture. had all my uploaded pictures there and pressed to uploade it. Now I can't get into my picture file. I can't download all the pictures for my hubs about a country.

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

Folks, yesterday I was trying to upload some images onto an existing hub. It had been imported from Squidoo, and in the original Lens, I had used links to images on my personal web site, which apparently HubPages doesn't support. I succeeded in uploading one image to replace an imported image, and...

New Glitch: Under Photo Capsule, can't add name of source, source URL and Caption. Anyone facing same problem?
by Fawntia Fowler 7 years ago
Thank you to everyone who reported problems with the photo capsule. A new release just went out that fixed a big issue with Internet Explorer that was causing all kinds of problems and understandable stress for a number of users. I apologize for this, especially because it took so long to track it...
