Help Needed: Newly Written Summaries Aren't Showing on My Hubs

    Pam Irieposted 3 years ago

    Yesterday, I edited 11 transferred lenses. Editing "box" in upper right hand corner of hub suggested I write a summary which I did. However, upon clicking "DONE EDITING", when you view the hub there is no summary showing though the summary is plainly visible in edit mode.
    For an example, one of the hubs I'm talking about was called Weird Stuff I Love. (I'm not putting the link here cause that's against the rules.)
    I was using MicroFox browser.

      The Summary does not show on your Hub unless you put it in a text module.  It does, however, appear as the Description Tag suggested to Google and Bing to show when posting a snippet on search engine results pages.

      It also shows on HP when your Hub appears in a list, on Topic pages and your Profile page for example. This is your Summary that shows for that Hub on your Profile:

      "We as individuals are all entitled to our own style. It would definitely be a boring world if everyone looked, dressed, and decorated in the same manner. I like unique and I like weird. Welcome!"

    Hi Pam, my lenses haven't transferred over yet, but based on what I've read while preparing, the summary may show only on your profile page rather than on the hub itself. I'm sure someone more experienced can give you a definitive answer.

      UPDATE: I just edited a different transferred lens/hub today and the problem is still there. sad Anyone have any ideas?

        Did you read the explanations above?  If you want the Summary to actually appear on your Hub, just put it as the first text in the first text capsule.

          Ooops Writer Fox.....I'm so sorry. Yes, I just found the answer you wrote and YAY it answers my question. I don't know why I didn't see that before asking again. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! smile  Pam

            You're welcome.

            You might want to change your view of the forums to "Chronological."  Just click on the button on the top right of the screen to do this.  I think it is easier to read and to follow everything that way.

              And thanks again, Writer Fox! I just did as you suggested and I do think this will make things easier for me to follow. Thank you! smile

          This is not encouraged as a best practice on HP.  It states clearly in the Learning Center not to repeat the title or sentences in the hub in the summary.  This was one of the practices that was discouraged a few years ago when HP started making changes to recover from Panda.
          Pam, you can take a look here and find out more about summaries.

            Thanks for the link! I don't plan to repeat the summary in the intro text capsule. Thanks for the tip though. The reason I was asking in the first place was because I thought there was a bug or something making my summary not appear. smile All is great now!

      Summaries show on your profile listing, and in search engine results. They're good for telling people, in one or two sentences, what they're going to see when they click through. They don't appear on your hub, like the Squidoo introductions did.
