    Hi all, this is a quick reminder that today all capsules will become full width. We originally announced this change back in July, but offered a grace period to give authors time to fix up old articles and ensure capsules would show in the correct order. There is no need to do anything; this change will become live later today automatically. However, if you didn’t get the chance before the change, we do recommend looking through your old articles to ensure that they look the way you want them to.

    Additionally, our new and improved subtitles will be implemented today (Heading 2 and Heading 3 subtitles will become larger and Heading 4 will be discontinued).

    Please let us know if you experience any technical or formatting issues relating to either of these changes. Happy Hubbing!

      @Christy, you have perfect timing. I have a hub to finish in a bit and I would love to see this in action. And . . .I have emailed you twice, and did you get time to reply?

        The only problem is that you didn’t take care of this before the automatic changeover. So some of your hubs have your images in the wrong places now.

        For example, your hub “The KEY Differences....” used to have many images next to text capsules that you aligned for two columns. So now your hub has all the images combined together at the beginning of the hub—followed by all the text at the bottom. The text no longer aligns with the images. I wrote a hub about that, warning everyone three years ago. It’s still available if you need help fixing this.

          Thank you, I am a little bit under the weather but I will straighten out the lacking hubs.  I have PLENTY to do!

    That's great news Christy!  I was wondering when both of these things were going to be done since the original date was January 15th. 

    I had worked on centering my right-floating capsules ever since mobile friendliness was first announced over two years ago. Everyone surely had enough time to get it done.

    I had been looking forward to the improved formatting of subtitles and I'm glad that's finally being done later today.

    Thanks for the note.

      We had hoped to  make these changes sooner but got a bit swamped with the Maven stuff. Thanks for your patience, Glenn, and we're sorry if we've kept authors waiting!

        It was definitely worth waiting for Christy. I see it was just implemented now and I love the larger subtitles with the extra space above them. That was so much needed, in my opinion. It will make it easier for visitors to quickly scan subtitles in articles when they are in a rush to find what is most important to them.

        Hey Christy, this is great smile

        I got a question regarding the H4 subtitles. I think there are a few hubs where I go up to H4 and from the blog post, you say the H4 would look the same as the H3. I don't mind that. I just need the structure for SEO purposes. Would I not be allowed to save my text capsules if I have h4 headings in them? Or would they automatically change to H3 or regular paragraph tags maybe?

        1. Glenn Stok profile image99
          Glenn Stokposted 6 months agoin reply to this

          H4 have been converted to H3 now. H4 no longer exists.

            lobobrandonposted 6 months agoin reply to this

            Is the change already implemented. I'm on my phone right now, don't want to check hubs. So H4 is now H3 even in HTML not just the display (CSS)?

            1. Glenn Stok profile image99
              Glenn Stokposted 6 months agoin reply to this

              Yes it’s implementted now. I checked several of my hubs to see how the subtitles look. That finally stand out as they should.

              I didn’t check the HTML, and I’m only on my iPad right now. But that’s what I remember reading a few weeks ago: all H4 are automatically chnaged to H3.

          Hi lobobrandon,

          Good question. H4 subtitles are being converted to H3s at an HTML level as well as a design one.

    I just checked. No implosions/explosions. And other good things are happening, but that's for another thread.

      paradigmsearchposted 6 months agoin reply to this

      Update.

      Whoops, just stumbled across an implosion. Fixed it. Guess I better check the other hubs one more time regarding side-by-side text capsules. I'd fixed everything as far as photos, but side-by-side text capsules just didn't register with me. Oh well; fortunately, the world didn't end.

    Thanks for the replies Glenn and Christy. I'll made do with it. Should be fine.

    Glad to see the H2 font size has increased. I always thought these titles were a bit on the small side and as Glenn says, it's easier for a user to identify sections of interest.
    As regards subtitles within text modules, should we always use H3 titles? When I create ordered lists, I tend to make the first few words of each entry in the list the title, and format it as bold (as in the example below). If I used subtitles. I think it would look odd and also each subtitle would end up as a list entry.

      Glenn Stokposted 6 months agoin reply to this

      Eugene, In reference to your question about formatting tables, I see no need for making each list item H3. Bold is sufficient. Although it might help get your table into Google Featured Snippets. But being a table should work just as well for that.

      One thing I would change, however, is to put a period at the end of each highlighted text in your example. Without that, it flows into the rest of the description as if it were one sentence.

      Alternatively (and the way I do it) is to make the highlighted part on a line by itself and start the description below it. In addition, use title capitalization with each highlighted section since you are considering them to be subtitles for each list item.

      1. eugbug profile image97
        eugbugposted 6 months agoin reply to this

        Thanks Glenn. When you suggest putting the highlighted part on a line by itself, do you mean turn off the "bullets" for that line and continue with a series of bulleted points below that?

        1. Glenn Stok profile image99
          Glenn Stokposted 6 months agoin reply to this

          No, leave the bullets for the subtitles on each list item. My point is to make it stand out better, instead of running into the content (especially since you didn’t have periods).

    The subtitles look much better like that in blue. Before, they just looked like bolded text.

    Thank you Team

    Everything's in order, looking good. Except that subtitles are much larger, some becoming two lines. I'm wondering if I should shorten some of the subtitles to fit the size of the capsules. It would look a little neater and more uniform.

    1. lobobrandon profile image88
      lobobrandonposted 6 months agoin reply to this

      My thoughts exactly. Some of my images have a word going to the next line now smile Doesn't look too good. But the change is good.

        You're forgetting about mobile. See my response to Janshares.

    2. Glenn Stok profile image99
      Glenn Stokposted 6 months agoin reply to this

      Why bother? Most of them have always been two lines anyway on mobile! Even when the font was smaller.

      1. lobobrandon profile image88
        lobobrandonposted 6 months agoin reply to this

        Because they are now 3 lines on mobile big_smile Too much for a heading on an image don't you think. It's not my top priority though. When I edit a hub, this is something I'll look out for.

        1. Glenn Stok profile image99
          Glenn Stokposted 6 months agoin reply to this

          Aha. I understand your point. That’s why it’s always important to consider mobile viewers.

          1. lobobrandon profile image88
            lobobrandonposted 6 months agoin reply to this

            Yup, very important anywhere on the internet. It's also a priority on my own website.

              Glenn Stokposted 6 months agoin reply to this

              Me too. Every major change I make on my own website I check on mobile.

        jansharesposted 6 months agoin reply to this

        I see what you're saying, Glenn. I was looking at desktop first. Just checked how it looks on iPhone. You're right, it was 2 or 3 lines anyway.
        Brandon, I agree. Not as urgent but I will look at a few that have one word hanging off and save the rest for my regular editing schedule.
        Thanks, guys! smile
