Question, how are contextual links created within a hub? I understand how to make and use the link capsule say for instance I want to create a link to give readers a website to provide them more information. My question is when a link appears within the body of a paragraph; how would I accomplish this task?
Text capsule in Edit mode.
Select text you wish to link with.
Click chain looking box after Pi.
Another box will open
Add URL to "Link URL" box
"Click "Done Editing"
(Unless you want to add more)
Just be careful not to over do the links or it will effect your hubs score.

Which hub? It works for me and everyone else,. I will take a look and see what you mean.
I seem to not stand alone on this one. Thanks Mark. I'm going to give it a try.
I have added the link http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/science/ … 11-08.html to the text "Results of a four-year study on Polar Warming" just below the 2nd paragraph of the hub http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Polar-Warming . I have followed the steps you've listed in making that link. If I click on it I get an error and the IE status bar indicate "local intranet".
If you can help me fix this, then I would be very grateful to you.
I got the contextual links it was easy. Thank you again for your help!

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...

I've searched around for answers about putting up aff links, and my concluded understanding is we can add no more than two links that point to one particular merchant, so I thought I could use for example multiple linkshare links as long as no more than two pointed to the same site. But my new...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

Since I don't have an affiliate to Amazon or adsense why does the violation list that I have too many of these? What is the difference between the two?I thought that you could have one amazon link per 50 words. Some of my pages have over 1,000 words and only 4 amazon links, and it's...

I asked...
