Why are we not able to utilize the full range of tags available for HTML coding, I find that we are quite limited in the ability to customize the look and feel of our HubPages. Are there any other ways to presented media content such as pictures and videos other than dead center or floating right in the my content? What are the future visions of HubPages? These are just things on my mind.... thanks
This is a highly efficient means of limiting bad page design, color schemes that are illegible and prevents the addition of many things that contribute to spammy content.
I think you have to look at this from a business point of view. Hubpages have standardised web design to be user friendly. I think they have achieved this for the masses. So, except for a tweak here and a tweak there, I think they have reached self actualization!
I prefer the standard format. From a reading perspective, it is easy for the eye to follow. What I have found as a publisher is the photo and text capsules and the ability to move those capsules create allot of opportunities for design.
The horizontal lines I think are amazing - they add a separate and can bring in the same colors of the links and the colors of my photo capsules.
The limitations are there admittedly but there are still a ton of creativity available to the author.
As we have discussed before, adding in the customized bullets would be really helpful. I believe this is on the docket for consideration.
The photo capsules could be a little more inventive with dark contrast with white lettering but perhaps that is not good from an advertising stand point. The bottom line is the return for the advertising.

I really don't like the new photo capsules. I would like to make them smaller but can't. I have doubleclicked them with no results. I want the old photo capsule format where I can reduce the size of the photos This is ridiculous. I doubleclicked the photo...

I went into one of my older hubs to add a photo and got this message:"It looks like some images in this capsule appear to be reduced in size. Note that saving any changes made to this capsule will update the size of these images to fit the capsule."After adding a new photo, all the...

In a recent HubPages weekly email, it was discussing the fact that many use photos and do not provide a source. I was thinking that this may easily be addressed by HP by requiring a source in the source field inside the photo capsule, whether it is "self" or the Freedigitalphotos,...

Some of the photo and video capsules in the hub cannot load. Photos (from creative commons so are accredited and legal) cannot be loaded. Tables cannot be loaded without me refreshing the hub in edit mode too. What could the problem be? Please advise.
