    Please add bbcode and javascript functionality to text capsules. I really like the hubpages concept, but would really enjoy the addition of javascript, like in Blogger. Any chance?

    We'll discuss it.  It's a possibility. How many others want this feature?

      it would be better if a llitle bit of html scripting is allowed ...
      and allowing myspace,veoh embedding videos option is also a good feature..

    Anything that can be done with bbcode can be done with html.

    Not sure about Javascript though. It may leave hub visitors open to the chance of the wrong type of person using it with the wrong intentions.

    I'd like to see a subset of HTML, including IMG and IFRAME, though there may be security issues with IFRAMEs.

    Text capsules already support all of those tags (using the buttons). And, as the text capsule is a WYSIWYG control, you can paste in formatted text.

      Being able to use  it outside of Hubpages and then copy and paste into the Capsule would save me a lot of time.

      I've given it a go. I guess I can save my marked up text in notepad as a HTML file and then and open up in a browser and copy and paste into the text capsule.

      Thanks for the heads-up.

      I seem to have had mixed results doing this. Perhaps it's been my own incompetence. When you say "formatted" do you mean formatted with HTML?

        Yes - if you copy some text on a web page, containing formatting and links and paste it into a text capsule, the basic look will be preserved. I'm guessing that only bold, italics and links will be allowed, all others will be stripped (including images and tables).

    I go with Honey and those who'd like some more HTML. I thought BB code was more or less HTML. Ideally, I'd like to be able to knock something up in Dreamweaver, or some other WISYWIG HTML editor, and then paste the code into the Hubpage.

    I guess it would have to be a subset of full HTML, but a few things like tables, etc, would be very nice.

    I'm not sure about Java or Javascript, but I thought some people went about with it turned off.

    The long defunct Webseed network had an excellent tool that provided a quite powerful WISWIG editor for those with no computer or HTML knowledge along with the ability to use near full HTML for those who could. It seems to me that something like this would be ideal for Hubpages, although I appreciate that such a thing can't be knocked up overnight, as it were.

    Allowing image code to be inserted within the document would be ideal.  I just finished a hub showing step by step installation that would have been perfect with images.

    Hi Pam,

    Here's a Hub that floats individual Photo Capsules to the right of individual Text Capsules for this effect: … ated_guide

    There are about 8 Text Capsules and 8 Photo Capsules, with the Photo Capsule moved to the right of the Text Capsule.

    This allows a step-by-step setup.

    Is that what you were looking to do?

    - Jason

      That should work.  I'll have to go back and change my hub!   Thanks.

    I would love to be able to add html directly to the text capsules, something that allowed us to alternate between the visual editor and hmtl source code. It would make it so much easier to add in some of the Ebay affiliate links that use img  tags for real-time tracking, as well as adding color, centering some text, etc. I've attempted to input those Ebay links into the text capsules before because I could have sworn someone said we could implement basic html into the capsules, but it just doesn't work.

    Javascript would be great too. Many of the affiliate programs on Commission Junction use either javascript or html links with small images so you can get an accurate idea of impressions and CTR. Would be nice if we could fully implement the various coding possibilities offered by Google Adsense (for Referrals and Search), Ebay and Amazon, as well as some of the other CJ affiliates.  And with Javascript, we could implement things like statcounter to get a much better idea of exactly where visitors are coming from, what kind of keywords they search, etc.

    Also, please oh please, could we get the option of floating photos to the left as well as to the right. I'd just like to change things up every once in awhile. smile
