It would be nice for the links in the links capsule to open in a new window. Especially since a lot of us are providing several links to other relevant content sites...so readers can stay with us or come back without needing to use the back button.
Although we allow it in the text capsule, in general we feel that forcing links to be opened in a new window is a bad idea. See this earlier discussion, as to why.
Many web browsers also allow a user to custom configure the response to links or pick how they would like a new link to be opened via options that open with "right clicking," i.e. open in a new tab, etc.
Seamonkey (formerly Mozilla) allows this. It also gives you the option when you create links in hubs to have the links open in new windows. It is very similar to Firefox.

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way?

I really liked the links capsule until I clicked on one to test it and figured out that it opened in the same window. Is it possible to make it an option to open a new window like when you are adding links within the text.

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...

I apologise to Marisa, as I have no intention of 'stealing her thunder' for her excellent hub gathering statistics on the Plunges and Surges - http://marisawright.hubpages.com/hub/Hu … es-survey. I have looked at another aspect which was not included in the survey. I looked at about 10...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...
