In a lot of my lenses, a lot of the text is the words contained within the text introductions on the Squidoo link modules.
I note that the link capsule on HB is just that - just a place to put links. There is no text section for introductions or any text within it (other than the description of the individual and specific link)
I'm now worried that all the text in my link modules might get lost on the transfer. I've backed up everything - however if the text is lost it will take forever to put right because I've got nearly 200 sites!
In an ideal world, they would convert the title and description into a text capsule, and then put the links into a separate capsule.
I have no idea if this is what they will do, though...
That's what I'm hoping they will do.
Or maybe HB create a new capsule which is text plus proper links - with no scope for links embedded within the intro text. That would suit me fine.
I quite like the simplicity and flexibility of having basic modules that can be interspersed with text modules, titles optional.
As for your question... I have no idea. I am sure that they will do the best that they can to make it a smooth transition. Speaking of that, do you know it they have started transferring lenses over yet? I bet these message boards are going to light up like a Christmas tree when they do. I hope we do not get on the Hubbers nerves when and if this should happen.
So long as people make it clear it's a transfer issue I don't see why it should annoy. There's no need to read threads which are of no relevance. All forums have peaks and troughs of threads of crucial, marginal and no relevance whatsoever to the viewer. This will just be slightly more extreme.
I'm sure HB management will start a thread for "problems and bugs" for those transferring in - if one is obvious people will just add to it rather than create new ones.

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...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

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...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

I use the internet with Firefox. All other websites seem to load just fine, my internet connection is pretty fast, but Hubpages is getting increasingly slower for me. Also, the picture and text problem with not saving when working on a hub is still an issue. I add a picture, upload, put in a...

I apologise to Marisa, as I have no intention of 'stealing her thunder' for her excellent hub gathering statistics on the Plunges and Surges - http://marisawright.hubpages.com/hub/Hu … es-survey. I have looked at another aspect which was not included in the survey. I looked at about 10...
