    "H2" has been mentioned in the forum and now it is in the guide. What is it?

      Best guess.

      This has to do with html. It is a heading signature. It is how one does with significance. Google is random on that. Be careful.

        You guess is as good as mine. I googled it and nothing came up.

          I'm kinda inclined to write you off, no big deal.

      If you look at the top of the hub tool you'll see "paragraph".  Under that you'll see H1, H2 and H3.  These are different sizes of subheadings.  I use H2 fairly often if I am writing a long capsule but want to section it off but keep the info within the same capsule.  It's a great tool that saves a lot of headaches.

          You probably mean me on this thread; I apologize for that and is not my normal behavior; been/was a wicked/cruel day; I'm usually one of the good guys.

    Of course, "H2" might just mean half a glass of water.

      Nope, H2 would just be 11.1% of a glass of water big_smile

    It means Heading 2. You have Heading 1, which is like the main page title. H2 is a subtitle. When you are editing a capsule, you can highlight the text and turn it into H2, H3 or H4 by using the drop-down menu that says 'paragraph' by default.

    The headings are picked up by Google, which is why we tell people to use meaningful subtitles.

      H4 has been taken away from that dropdown and now the team is changing my H3s and making them H2s as they go around editing. I have complained to Robin about this before and she always asked for instances where they did this because they shouldn't. Two hubs last night and I emailed Robin and got an auto response that the email does not exist anymore.

      I used headings to help orgainse stuff for readers and SEO too, and I've been losing out on my snippets after editors goof around with my headings. Changing it back does not get me my snippet, not immediately.

        The hp staff are now using maven.io addresses. I am pretty sure the first part of the email address is the same.

          lobobrandonposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

          I assumed this was the case, but @maven.io? I'll give it a try. I wonder why forwards were not set up.

          EDIT: @maven.io and @themaven.net with the same first part failed. Was worth the try.

            Sorry, you can't get in touch with Robin. That is odd. Question about using the H2: When I drop down the and pick H2, the whole capsule is formated H2. How do you H2 a single line or phrase? Is this possible?

              Glenn Stokposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

              Kenna, You need to highlight the text you want as H2 and then select H2 from the drop down selections.

              lobobrandonposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

              H2 and H3 etc are for headings. So An entire line has to be a heading. If the line is a part of a paragraph the entire paragraph will be H2. Just create a line break (new line) and make your heading the heading.

                Glenn and Brandon, Thank you. I will give this a try.

                EDIT: It worked. big_smile

              Apparently, after you type the line you want headed, you have to go back and select Paragraph or whatever format you want.

            Just today I received an email from tbuchin@maven.io
            If you send it to her you can ask that she forward it to Robin. I know that maven.io is correct but I am not sure if Robin changed the first part of her email address.

    It's an HTML tag. When you create a webpage, it's converted behind the scenes into a Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) text file. When you view a webpage, your browser downloads the HTML source file for the page and interprets it so that it knows how to position, colour and size the text, position photos etc. Webpage design packages will do the donkey work of generating HTML code, but it can also be written from scratch.
    A H2 tag would be used like this in an HTML file:

    <h2> Some text for a title </h2>

      But HP is not doing anything with HTML on its site, okay?

      1. theraggededge profile image97
        theraggededgeposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

        It's built in to the source code. All websites run on HTML, and when you use a subtitle, those tags are added, even though you can't see them.

    I've noted your good recent comment on the issue, and I quite understand it. Thanks for this additional insight. You're always be welcomed.
