Some of the redesigned sites are not showing the attribution SOURCE link for photos. I see this on sites where the author bio has been moved to the center. On sites like Spinditty, which have not yet been changed over to the new layout, the links still appear.
I really hope this is a bug, as proper image attribution is very important.
Was hoping staff (or someone) would respond by now. I assume they still monitor this forum. (?)
It may seem like a small thing but if the image attribution is no longer a feature on our Hubs I've got 300+ articles to go through to make sure I am not wrongly using images that require attribution. I'll have some major editing to do, and I'd guess I'm not alone in that.
I'm assuming its a bug in the new layout, but it sure would be nice to know for sure.

In a recent HubPages weekly email, it was discussing the fact that many use photos and do not provide a source. I was thinking that this may easily be addressed by HP by requiring a source in the source field inside the photo capsule, whether it is "self" or the Freedigitalphotos,...

Today I noticed that some of the niche sites are not always showing the updated dates in the SERPS. I've seen this specifically with Spinditty, Exemplore and Pethelpful. Instead it is showing a much earlier date, and not necessarily even the publication date. If fact, at least one of my Hubs is...
