When adding maps to a hub the first one is fine. However, if I add more than one map to a hub the second and subsequent maps don’t automatically refresh in edit mode.
I’m not sure whether it’s a compatibility issue with the browser I use and HubPages e.g. Internet Explorer; and I don’t know if anyone else has experience this.
However, I find the simple solution is to:-
• Do what you can with editing the map
• Save it
• Publish the hub, and then
• Go back into Edit Hub so that you can continue editing the map before republishing your Hub.
We are aware of some issues affecting the map capsule.
Does the problem only occur when you are using Internet Explorer?
Does clearing your browser cache and restarting have any effect?
Does it persist in Firefox?
If you can share the title and/or URL for a specific Hub I can look into it further.
Let me know which capsules are problematic as well.
This should now be fixed.
I tested in IE11 in Windows 7 and 8 and was able to add two pins to the same map succssfully.
No I tried Google Chrome, and the same issue.
Yes, refreshing the page while still in edit mode in both IE and Google Chrome does refresh the map.
I haven’t tried Firefox, I thought I had Firefox as my backup browser, but in rechecking this issue it turns out that it’s Google Chrome which I currently have as the secondary browser.
I just retested the issue by trying to recreate the first map (Lynton and Lynmouth, Devon, England) in my Hub entitled Steam Trains and Water Gravity Powered Trains in Britain; and in doing so in both IE and Google Chrome the map failed to refresh in both browser (to show the correct location) until I pressed the browser’s refresh button.
This problem occurred for all my Hubs where I added two or more map capsules, predominantly my ‘Travel Hubs’; and when initially editing those Hubs (recently transferred from Squidoo) it was never the first map capsule I added, it was when adding the second and subsequent map capsules to a Hub.
I hope this helps.
Thanks for all the helpful details @Nathanville!
I confirmed the issue you described in Internet Explorer and will test some other browsers as well.
I have passed this information to our engineering team, so hopefully we can get a fix deployed soon!
Thanks for your continued patience.
I know this may not help if the locations are far from each other, but you can add multiple pins to the same map capsule.
Thanks Matthew, yes multiple pins on the same map capsule is at times very handy, especially if the locations are quite close to each other; so I have used them when possible on some of my hubs in preference to adding another further map capsules, although I think there is scope on future re-edits to combine some map capsules in some of my travel hubs where destinations are further apart.

I am screaming with frustration! Most of my hubs have been unfeatured due to lack of traffic. I write about gardening which no one wants to read about in the winter. Spring is coming so I want to get my hubs featured again, but every time I try to edit them, I either get an error...

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!

Is Google Chrome, or Firefox, better than Internet Explorer?I'm wondering if I'm going to run into problems with these. Has anyone compared these search engines? Which is the best one to use with Windows 7 ?

Lately I've been experiencing issues with how capsules are displayed within the editor. When I'm moving capsules to a desired location, there seems to be odd gaps, blank spaces, and dead spots that can't be filled with a picture or have a separate capsule fixed to them. I've tried to fix text...

Today I noticed that when I click on the 'go right' arrow in Amazon capsules, it brings me to the top of the page and I have to scroll down to the capsule again to click on the 'go up' arrow to place it next to a text capsule. Is this a glitch/bug? I can't recall I had this problem earlier and...

This Hub has failed QAP due to spammy elements. I know that means the Amazon capsules, but honestly - if genuine product reviews like this can't pass QAP, things have become ridiculous: Recommended DVD's for Male Ballet Dancers. If I remove all the Amazon capsules, I feel like adding an...
