Is there a way to add a capsule to cite sources? Would be nice if it had the option of filling out fields to properly cite various sources, such as websites and books.
I have found the website, "easybib (dot) com" to be very helpful in this regard. I simply create a capsule titled "Resources," and within, I paste the citations as generated from that site.
It's a very simple, easy-to-use copy/paste process. One minor 'drawback,' is that the "APA" style HP wants, is only available in a for-pay "pro" edition. Otherwise, you get "MLA8" whatever that means.
I've not had any negative feedback from HP about my citations, so I don't think it's a big deal. I think their "APA" style requirement is really only for formatting the body text in our articles, anyway.
I just add a text capsule. You can then add the sources you want and if they are web sites include hyperlinks.
You can check out my latest article on treating yeast infections to get an example of how I do it.
That's what I've been doing. What I'd like is something that is kind of set apart, almost like the call out capsule in a way. Smaller font, smaller header, and it would be nice with a shaded background. It would help differentiate the article from the list of sources. I've seen it on a lot of other sites and thought it would be nice if HP had something like that.
