Greetings All: I have been having trouble with my Amazon capsule. I've gotten great answers from people on what to do but it is not working. I added the capsule and it ended up at the bottom of the hub. I cannot move it up where people will see it. I was told that there is a clean up icon but I can't find it. I did find the edit and up and down arrows. But the up arrow moved it at the top of the text. I just want it to come at the end but not so far down. Nothing seems to be working. Any help is great.
I don't know what other answers you got, but generally you hover the cursor over the spot in the hub where you want the capsule to be inserted and click on the option for the type of capsule you require (text, image, Amazon etc). If you have added the capsule from the right hand side of your screen then it will automatically go to the bottom of your hub, and you will need to either physically find it at the bottom of the page in edit mode and use the 'up' arrow on the top of the capsule to move it up the hub one click at a time until it is where you want it to appear, or alternatively go to the right of your hub where all your capsules are listed, find the one you want to move, click on it and 'drag' it up the list until it is where you want it to appear and then release the click to drop it into that position.
Should add that pictures can make using the 'up' or 'down' arrows appear more complicated as the capsule can appear to move all over the place or shove the pictures etc into what appears to be the wrong layout. Basically clicking the arrow again will result in the capsule skipping above the image and putting the image back where you intended it to be (sounds complex, but you will see what I mean if you try it in practice).
Hope this helps.
If you want to include your capsule in the middle of your text, you'll have to make sure the text itself is broken up between multiple text capsules. If you have one big capsule of text, you won't be able to rearrange other capsules within it. I recommend breaking up your text in a different text capsule for each paragraph, with descriptive subtitles for each.
I find it easier to use the tool on the upper right hand of the hub in edit mode, the tool shows the first sentence of the capsules (most of the time) as bars and the type. I look for the Amazon capsule and move it where I want it with the tool .Then scroll down to see how it looks. It is pretty nifty.
Should add that left click on the bar with my mouse and hold down the mouse to move it.
Agree this is an easy way (I also mentioned it in my comment), but even easier still is to hover your cursor between the actual capsules on your screen and simply click on the type of capsule you want to insert there, and 'hey presto' it is in exactly the spot you want it without the need for any clicking and dragging. This option came a long time after the 'click and drag' one, and I guess this was because it made it easier to create capsules in the exact places you wanted them
If you want to move the Amazon capsule to a different position within the hub from where it currently sits the best thing to do would be to go the right side of the hub page (when hub is in edit mode) where it shows all the capsules that the hub currently has, click on the one that says amazon and while keeping the mouse button clicked drag it up to where you want it to go.

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I don't know what is going on with my articles lately, but every time they edit them, my amazon capsules are removed. Once they remove the amazon products, they publish it and feature it. I don't understand why this is happening to my articles. If they are going to remove the amazon capsules, then...

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs, moving much of my text from text capsules into the Amazon description fields. This...
