Hubfeed capsule?

    I've cottoned on to the idea of using an RSS feed to add a list of my related Hubs to a Hub, instead of using a Links capsule and laboriously pasting all my links in.

    However,there's one thing I don't like - it shows how old the Hubs are.  That's not something we normally publicise! 

    So I'm thinking - is it possible to have an option in the RSS capsule not to show the dates?

    Or, is it worth having a special "Hubfeed" capsule, just for HubPages RSS feeds, that doesn't show dates? 

    Maybe - getting ambitious here - it could be set up to make it easier to set up the feed (I know a lot of people struggle with putting it together).  And- getting really ambitious - maybe it could have an option to add your tracker to each link.

    It could be of value to HubPages because it would encourage more Hubbers to include links to other Hubs.

      I know you've been here longer than me so this might not be a good idea but... when I get around to making a graphic for it, I want to make some kind of picture to put at the bottom of the hub telling users something like:
      "Click the green button at the bottom to see another hub I've written on the topic" plus a request to share, comment and rate.
      I only just discovered the green arrow button the other day and plan to put it to good use - the only problem is that lots of people (silly ones like me!) completely miss it at first!

        I assume you mean the ability to put Hubs in Groups, which causes the arrows to the next and previous Hubs to appear?

        Your idea would be pretty easy to do.  Take a look at this Hub by Shazwellyn - she's chosen to push hard on the "thumbing" and sharing options:
        http://hubpages.com/hub/Cat-Play-Keyboa … o-Cat-Nora

        All she's done is put the thumbs up graphic in a photo capsule.

        Cosette, I'm glad it's not just me.  It's not that hard really, but somehow I seem to stuff it up far too often!
