First, thanks to darkside's post, I was able to improve my hubs for Top Ten Reasons Why The Philippines Is A Great Tourist Destination.
I can't however, put a background color on the toggled text capsule. Silly me, but I can't see which one to click/activate. It still says - available only when aligned right.
Help please?? Thanks!
Actually, you can shade the text capsule the same as you can the retail ones. And the process works the same way, meaning you have to right-align the capsule to be the skinner format before the options appear in the edit mode.
there are arrows by the top right of each capsule (whether it be text, photo, whatever). If you click on the right arrow, the capsule will move to the right. NOw, when you click edit, you will see to the top left there are three shades of background. Hope that helps....wish I could show you in person because I am the worst at explaining it long distance...
Thank you, all, I've done it! When I looked at it this morning, the three background colors were available. It seems you have to first save the changes in the capsule, save the hub, then go back and edit the background. I say this because yesterday after I have edited the capsule and aligned it to the right, it still does not show the background options.
So, now I learned a new trick. Thanks!
thanks for those tips, mommyfreelancer. I can't do the background colors and I assumed it was because I'm a loyal Google Chrome browser user. I'll check out your method and see if it works for me.
Hope it works (keeping fingers crossed!)
Yeah, I have this thing for Chrome but it keeps getting in the way. It's bad for html editing in Google Sites, keeps moving images around on HubPages when I edit, and is cantankerous (I haven't spelled that one before, I wonder if it's right?)

Sorry - saw another thread on this but can't find it now...We used to be able to insert a background color in text capsules - and it adds a nice emphasis in shorted capsules such as quotations, and short "asides". I can't ind a button or whatever to do this now - maybe not looking in the...

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have supplementary information that would be useful for the reader, they just can't be fitted...

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...

I know this is a really dumb question, but I can't seem to think too well this morning. In order to add a background color to text on a hub, it must be aligned to the right. I open the html editor, but there is no existing code for the alignment. Do I treat it like coding on a webpage, or is there...

I'm still having problems saving text capsules that have links in them.I've been having the problem for months now. Every now and then I can't save text capsules that have contextual links within the capsule. I'm using Firefox and I've tried Safari today. I can only get it to work most of the time...
