I'm not sure if this is easy or not to implement, but it seems like when someone is browsing hubs, they should be able to visit the hub by clicking on the image, not just the text. This would work well for touchscreen devices.
It isn't a big deal, more like icing on the cake.
Currently we allow hyperlinks in photo capsules for attribution of images.
When you say "browsing hubs", what mechanism or way to explore the site are you referring to? The feed? Related Hubs?
When you click explore at the top, then hubs, the page of hubs and categories appear. That is what I was referring to.
Thanks for the suggestion.
That sounds like it could be a useful feature.
I will bring it up in our next community meeting.
We discussed this in our meeting today.
I discovered that we had the image hype-linked in the past and it was removed due to doubling the link count for topic pages.
High numbers of links on pages with little content can be seen as SPAM by search engines, so the removal was to reduce the likelihood of these pages to be seen as SPAM.
Can't you make the image, link, and text a sort of capsule or object and make that the link? That would keep the amount of links the same.
When I visit hubpages on my mobile devices, I always touch the images of the hubs, as that is what mostly all touchscreen apps allow you to do. I believe it would be disconcerting to any mobile device user to not be able to do that, and it would leave an impression of 'falling behind' technologically.
Thanks for your interest.

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

This is an extension of my earlier question posted here, "Regarding HubPages policy about Hub publication of material published elsewhere on the Web." The same *core* issue is at stake in this post — HubPages says that we may NOT "...publish Hubs or Hub Content that are...

My least preforming are about Anthony Wiener, IBS and picking used vehicles to resell. It's interesting to know what hubs do well, and which don't....
