HP Suggestions

    In a perfect world if I had my druthers, I would like:

    1. To be able to assign a hub to more than one group.

    2. To be able to have custom saved capsules that could be inserted into multiple hubs easily (copyright notice, a certain set of links, a set of products selected from Amazon, etc.).

    3. The ability to set one capsule's position vertically (top, middle, bottom) when it's inserted into a text capsule. Right now it defaults to top and that breaks up my title for the capsule most of the time.

    Just suggesting...

      I like all three of these.  I can see how (2) could be too useful to spammers, though, so I would understand if they didn't go for that one!

  2. Drew Breezzy profile image71

    those are some good idea. I agree I wish the capsules could be moved around differently.

  3. relache profile image87
    relacheposted 8 years ago

    I'd prefer not to see a pre-loaded capsule feature, as that opens the door too easily for the spammers.

    Don't know much about spammers (except that I get their freaking emails) so didn't give them a thought. Couldn't you have a captcha when creating to stop them?

      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      What we mean by "spammers" is that there are people who write umpteen Hubs with the sole purpose of promoting their products.  Then HubPages admin has to run around and delete them all.  If there was a capsules which they could create once then auto-paste all their links, it would make life even easier for them!  A captcha wouldn't solve anything.

        Thanks Marisa. Hadn't thought about it in that context. I guess it was just all about ME! smile

          Well, with a cute face like that, who could blame you?  No, wait - what makes me think that's not really you...

    Sorry, not another captcha please yikes

    For your original list:

    1. Interesting, could really be useful I think.
    2. Not really sure I need it, and not really see much potential for spamminng, so neutral.
    3. Sorry, did not really understand it.

    smile

      On #3: Let's say you wanted a photo to sit inside of a text capsule. You create the text and photo capsules, then hit the little right arrow thingee on the photo capsule and voila! It's nested in the text capsule -- at the freaking top right corner! If I have a title on that capsule, it invariably gets wrapped onto two or more lines, and all my capsules with photos look pretty much the same because I can't change the position of the photos.

        Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Of course, they might feel this is unnecessary because there's an easy way around it, which I use all the time - split your text up over more, smaller capsules.

    Love the idea of #1; have had the same wish myself and just never expressed it. 

    Neutral on #2, and, well, yeah, didn't really understand #3 either.

    I've suggested number 2, but was shot down and believe it was the right reason... spammers...


    As for number 3 i don't fully understand. Don't think you explained it clearly. From what I gather, just play with he length of your text capsules more.

    Or move the capsules so that the hubs don't look all the same. There's no rule that says you have to have a picture there or there on all of your hubs.

    1. lrohner profile image81
      lrohnerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Agreed, Whitney. See below:

      http://i30.tinypic.com/28jctnd.jpg

      Why can't I move that pic to the middle or bottom of that capsule?

      1. Whitney05 profile image83
        Whitney05posted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Gotcha.. Just break up the text. There's no need for a tool to determine where to place the picture within a capsule, if you can just create another capsule and it'll do the exact same thing that you're asking. I do it a lot and it's never created any issues. I don't know... Just seems like the feature is too much work on HP's part if we can already do a work-around, but I do understand some not wanting to do the extra work for the workaround.

    Just break that capsule up into 3 and place the pic where you want it.

      That's my point. Why should we have to? I still never flows nicely.

        I'm not sure where you're having trouble.  I just published a new flamenco Hub.  I had two photos which didn't look right sitting next to one text capsule.  All I did was cut the bottom half the text, put it into a new capsule and voila. 

        I notice that if you don't have a heading on a capsule, the photo doesn't look as if it's lining up while you're in edit mode - but once you publish, it's fine.

        I do agree though, that it would save a bit of mucking around if you could just choose whether you wanted the photo at the top, middle or bottom of the one capsule.
