    Forgive me if this has been suggested or discussed before, but would it be possible to put a capsule or box on each hub similar to what are on the profile page.  It should be technically easy to do as those capsules seem to exist.  There seems to be plenty of space, especially on longer hubs.

    There are many times when I am reading other hubbers' hubs that I would like to check out other stuff w/o having to click on the profile and then click on the latest, hot or best capsule.

      You could always add a link capsule. That way you have complete control over which hubs are showed.

        Slightly off topic but at the moment I think there is a bug when I add a link box of hubs they aren't taking - they are there when I save the capsule but disapear when I click done editing - Ive reported int to HP but it would be helpful to know if the same thing is happening to others - its only with links to hubs not outside links!

    I find clicking on the user name and being taken to the profile page rather efficient, as that then let's me see latest, hot and best hubs all at once.

    Or click "more by"authorname"" under the  author's photo on the hub!

      How have I missed this all this time.  I never noticed this. Thanks for pointing out, what should have been obvious.

        I had the same problem.   "Related Hubs" is far more obvious than "more by author", so readers are more likely to navigate away to other Hubbers' work than your own.  I don't know if that's deliberate - spreading the love!  - or not.

          I still think a box with "more by" is easier than noticing the link in the profile section, especially if you don't know what's going on.  Not instead of "Related Hubs" but in addition to.

            Yes Peter, I thought that's what I was saying!  The "more by" link isn't obvious to casual visitors, and newbies may not think of clicking on the name.  So a more obvious "more by" link would be nice.

    This is happening to me also.  I find it quite annoying.  It is happening with some outside links also.  Let me know if you found an answer.

    I agree - the link is kind of hard to see.  Especially in comparision to the Related Hubs box.  But I usually do what Relache suggests and just click on the profile to find more Hubs by the author.

    Excellent, so now what?  Shall we start a PETITION?  Other suggestions?
