How many types of capsules do you use when writing a hub?
Do you simply use text capsules and the one photo capsule that pops up on a blank hub or do you try to incorporate as many capsules as you can (amazon, video, poll, etc).
I will use at least one text and one photo along with ebay and Amazon. I have used the poll in quite a few as well. Several have the Google maps in them, and of course the video capsules. I have experimented around with various aspects. I find that it will depend on the hub and the subject matter at times on how I will format the overall hub. Oh, I have also used the "rating" capsule in the few recipe hubs I have up and related recipe capsules.
I am usually using several text capsules, photo capsules and also incorporating a couple Amazon capsules now, besides the Adsense ones that are automatically included for us. When I first started I kept things very simple, but I am beginning to branch out and do more now.
I'm usually use tow or three text capsules, and in same or more quantity photo capsules. And also try for add an Video capsule if found related video.
I typically use several text modules, one photo module, one comment module, and one amazon module.
If possible I will add YouTube video's, Ebay products, Photos, Polls, Links and Maps.
In most of my Hubs I include all of these capsules because I just like the creative part about writing. Like creating an album of images and words.
Plain text and one picture can easily lead to Hubbers clicking away from your Hub.

Okay, to start with, the features in the capsules we have are already pretty awesome, and my hat is off to the programmers for coming up with all these utilities.There is one additional feature that would be on my wish list, and that would be the option to "drag and drop" photo and map...

I've got an idea for my first hub and hope to start working on it in the next few days.If I were writing my hub as a straight article, I would probably end up with 7-8 sections and use subheadings for each one. Looking at the guide, I note a recommendation to use a number of smaller text capsules...

"Techo" Matt,This has been happening for some time on all of my hubs.When I open a Text Capsule and copy and paste content in, it does not show the text until I hit Save. EXAMPLE:I published a poetry hub today and had the title in the content I pasted into the text...

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...

A very kind soul noticed a month ago that I need to learn how to break up my text with photos or something between the paragraphs when my text is long. She explained how to do it. I tried and couldn't grasp it. Then I misplaced or accidentally deleted her email -- so I haven't...
