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.
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.
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 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've got a lot of catching up to do and questions and answers like these will be a great help!

Are we "penalized" if we don't follow the Hub Pages style tips? Are they requirements in disguise? If so, I don't think that's fair in all cases because it "dictates" how we should be writing our content. Also, in order to use an authentic photo, sometimes the photo might be...

I was dismayed to see a large number of my hubs are now no longer featured so I made a start at tweaking them. I then noticed that all of them have a Style Tips notice saying that I should delete the copyright notices I had carefully posted in each hub and use the automatic way of doing this in...

Style tips can trigger a 'too many ads' warning even if there are only singleton ads showing on a page, .The issue seems to be that only one amazon product has been added to a capsule but the capsule is configured to show multiple ads.ie 'Maximum number of items to display' equals 3 or more but the...

Will adding dividers to a hub lower my hubscore?I just added some dividers between capsules on my hub and it said that most people prefer hubs without dividers and asked if I wanted the system to automatically fix it. It fixed it by removing the dividers completely. If I add them back, will my...
