I find I'm wandering over to Squidoo more and more to do anything where I need a clickable image or anything even slightly involved when it comes to HTML. Please oh please, I would just prefer to create all my pages here
I would love to be able to use HTML as well. I doubt HubPages will let you use Java script though.
Text links would be very useful in linking to other pages but for those of us that would rather keep our readers on page are stuck with sending viewers off-page to accomplish tasks.
If editors are concerned about naughtiness they could always allow such things with editor approval.
For instance, my mortgage_calculator page is forced to send readers outside the system in order to demonstrate how to gain wealth using your homes' equity.
You will find the growth of HubPages will increase fastest by allowing the greatest degree of agency with publishers. The community itself is often the best monitor of what has value.
I absolutely agree. I myself have been spending my time at Squidoo because of the lack of html use in Hub pages. I have created a few Hubs but get very frustrated when I can't even add a clickable picture or a link with tracking codes. I can't even put a stat counter on my pages or change text color.
Let people be creative! Squidoo just recently had a crack down and eliminated the use of iframes because of spammers. The spammers always ruin it for everybody else, but is it not possible to have some sort of approval method for Hub pages?

I've had a massive headache ever since reading about this Squidoo acquisition thing yesterday. I'm not even going to get into whether I think it is a good idea or not. It doesn't matter what I think. The deal is done so it's time to move forward, and as always I trust HP management to make the...

Squidoo had an active presence on social media. What will happen to all those accounts now?I'm particularly interested in the FB pages associated with the magazines. Why Vegetarian, which has over 27,000 followers, used to be a good source of traffic to vegan and vegetarian lenses. So Crafty has...

I really don't see why this wasn't implemented. Makes it so much harder to make Hubs unique.
