Style Tips Adventures...

    Well, I've been banging away at that "Make it happen!" button for the last few days. Pretty much the only thing it has been concerned with is my use of dividers. I always thought they were purdy. But HP says they are not a good idea. So I've been pressing the magic button and making them disappear. They are now strewn all over the landscape of gone-to-that-great-website-in the sky. It will be interesting to see how Google digests their absence in due course.

    HP must have put a lot of work into that tool. It sure made things quick and easy for me. smile

    Anybody else got any Style Tips tips?

      Where are you seeing this Make it Happen button?  I don't see it.

      My style tips have to do with too many Amazon products in the capsules.  I had three and now am narrowing them down.

        You are right. It doesn't show up for all tips. I guess it shows up for dividers because HP really, really wants me to get rid of them. lol

    I kept my dividers ... s0d the style guide, I've never had any style, so don't need some bot-guide telling me what to do.

    I figure that the dividers help the reader's eye focus on where the next chunk starts, where the next sub-section is .... it allows them to skim through rather than being smacked in the chops by a wall of words.

      I kept mine, too, because I can't get a table of contents to work on this site unless I connect it to dividers.  When I connect to dividers, the link leads to the right place (to the content) I want.  The only thing which is missing is the ability to put an Alt Tag on the image without it being turned into a caption. Because "blue line" wouldn't look too cool for visitors, I haven't included an alt tag on dividers.

      And, I agree, they also help to segment the page on really long Hubs.

        I started with my lowest-traffic hubs, and am working my way up. I figure I have nothing to lose. At some point I will stop, until I see how Google responds to the ones I did. One just never knows... big_smile

    I hope the next Styles Tips upgrade has the Looks-Like and Happens buttons for other images that it's unhappy with. It's unhappy about a "low resolution" pic in one of my photo galleries. What with that hub already buried in pics, I'd be more than happy to throw out the bad one, but I can't figure out which one it is.

      I'd try loading the hub, then increasing the page/photos using Ctrl + repeatedly making it all larger until I spotted the one that blurred first.
