Full Width Capsule Edit Glitch

    Hello--

      I've been working diligently to edit all the hubs listed under 'which of my hubs will be affected.'  I've gotten it down to under 200, but there are still many to go through.

    It has been gratifying to see the list shrink, and titles disappear from that list as I go.  However, one article remains stubbornly stuck on that list, and I've edited it now 3 times, trying to figure out what the issue is, but I cannot.  As near as I can tell, all is now in compliance.

    https://dengarden.com/misc/Water-Saving … ought-Year

    This is the article that refuses to move from the list of 'hubs that will be affected.'  Can someone please point out what the problem is, or is it a Hub Pages glitch?

    Thank you.

      After editing the hub, you will be receiving an email message if it is not accepted by HP within 2 days. Till then, it will be showing as pending on your statistics page. So, check it from your statistics page whether it shows as pending even now. I had to edit some articles again and again and remove any links, or edit titles to make them relevant, etc.

        Just now, I went through your article and found one of your photos was right-floated. Remove that right-floated one by making it full-width by clicking the double-headed arrow button. That is hindering your hub from being featured.

    There is still one photo that's not page wide in your hub. The one after 'Caution' at point 2. A photo of a pot in the sink.

    Yes you still have a photo capsule (Pail filling with water) that needs to be widened!
    it is next to the text written below:
    'Keep a large pot or bucket in the kitchen and bathroom'
    and has this caption:
    'Waiting for the water to get hot can waste many gallons'
    Also look for any 'empty' capsules that you may have put into the Hub 'just in case you need' them. I have been caught a couple of times with them. smile

    As the others have said, you still have one image floating right. But I’m surprised you still have 200 hubs to work on since this warning was announced two years ago.

    I noticed that you are centering your images without paying attention to placement. You have some images above the discussion that relates to it, rather than below—where it would make more sense to the reader.

      Ah, poop!  Thank you, folks.  I don't know what's going on; I clicked to make that photo full width...I don't know why it didn't take!
      I will try again.

        Like I said, you’re not paying attention and placing things in the wrong place. That’s why you missed it altogether. You’ve got to read your text to see if it make sense.

        I even found some Hubbers who still have text that says “see image at right”.  You can’t just blindly center your capsules. You will miss things! (I’m speaking for everyone, not just you).

        I guess the lesson is, after you hit "done editing", look at your Hub and make sure everything has worked AND that it all makes sense.

        The bottom line is this. If all you're going to do is click to make all the photos full width, then don't bother doing anything. The system does that automatically and will go on doing it automatically.  You don't need to worry about it.  You won't be penalised for it.

        The whole point of editing them yourself is because, when you make the photo full width, it often makes a nonsense of things. 

        For instance, when you make a photo full width, it widens ABOVE the paragraph related to it, so you probably need to move it down below that paragraph.   Otherwise the reader sees a photo and goes, "Huh, what's that a photo of?".

        Also (as Glenn says) you might have said things like, "The image on the right....." and you need to fix that.

          Yes, I fixed the references in the text as to where the photo was located.

      Glen that is a very good point and I admit that I am guilty of doing that.
      I'm not sure if the Editors are picking that up ?

        Editors will pick that up IF they are editing your Hub to move it to a niche site.   However, no one is checking your existing Hubs to see if you've done the right thing.

          Yes, I am aware that it puts it above the relevant text, and that it then has to be moved down.  (annoying;  they could have had it move below with a simple line of code)...but there it is.
          At any rate; when I looked at it after editing, it appeared to have stayed put, but when I still saw it in the list...I looked again after Glen's suggestion here, and sure enough, it had scooted right back to where it was to begin with!
          I think it is now fixed.

      Glen,
      I did notice that they were not centering where I wanted them; and I did move them to below the appropriate text.  I've done that from the get-go.  Are you telling me that those changes, too, are not 'sticking?'

    I think you have to write to Hubpagescom this is a technical problem
    Good luck

    Okay; it's happened again!  This time, I very carefully scanned the hub, and there are NO more right-floated capsules.  ALL are full width.
    Yet, this article: https://hubpages.com/autos/Parking-Lot-Design is still stuck in the 'hubs that will be affected' list. 

    Sigh

      You missed the announcement. It was just done today. All capsules are full width now. The “affected”list still shows it because you didn’t fix it prior to the switch-over today. So now now it’s possible that your capsule that was right-floated is now in the wrong place, as I talked about two years ago in my hub about how to fix it.

        Arrgghh...
        Well, 2 years ago, I was not in a good place, so many of those sorts of announcements got past me.  That's why I've been scrambling to try and fix everything in the last couple of weeks. 
        Obviously, I didn't make it by the deadline.
        P.S.
        Well, anyway, I'm also making other edits to the text as well, so it's not all for naught.
