I was trying to embed a map from google and could'nt figure out how to do it correctly. With the different views (map, satelite and street) it would have been pretty cool to embed it in the hub, is there a way or am I stuck just using a link? (which I did)
You're not going to be able to embed images in a Hub due to code limitations.
I think that was what I was seeing, kept telling me it didn't recognize the code. But I wasn't sure I was trying in the correct capsule. But the maps (on google) have the url and embedding code just like for example youtube. So I was hoping I just tried the wrong capsules. Thanks for responding, your always so helpful, alot of us appreciate it.
Only way I can think of besides the link is to take a screen shot and then upload the picture.
I used the link URL, I was trying to embed to “street view”, which for this particular hub would have been pretty cool. But,… I really didn’t want to use an outbound link.
Well if you use Windows, while the image you want to display is on your monitor you can hit "PrtScn" or the Print Screen key on your keyboard. Open up Paint, and paste into the document, and then save and upload that picture.
You could also use a plugin for Firefox called FireShot which does something similar, but it's even easier and faster than the method I described above.
Or, of course, you can link out.

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...

Is it better to embed a coded link within a capsule or put it into a "link" capsule?
