I am becoming frustrated. I cannot get my photos to align with my text capsules. There was a white gaping space between one text capsule and the relevant link. So I clicked "don't display" on all photos and tried again. Is there any way someone could take a look without me publishing the mess I'm in? Or any suggestions? I'd appreciate any help at all. Thanks.
I have been trying to explain to you that what you see in the editor - even in preview - may differ drastically from the published result, also depending on browser.
And no, nobody can see your unpublished hub, unless you start sharing your login information - which would be highly unusual.
are you starting a new text capsule next to the images you want to align? that's the only way I know how to do it.
The ad placement that is creating a "white space" is automatic, if you have adsense on the hub or if it's marked as "commercial".
To avoid that "white space", other than the top and side-bar, then leave the top text box without a picture along side it, so the ad placement will remain at the top.
If you put a picture next to a text capsule, then that pushes the ad placement down further into your hub.
If you have no commercial marked and no adsense ads, then there is nothing you can do about the "white" space. That includes, in between text capsules as well.
Ad placements work on location of text capsules and other things placed into the hub.
I hope that helps.
Edit: Text capsules and Photo capsules interlock for lining up.
Thanks Cagsil - Interlock? does it do this automatically?
Use the "right" arrow and force the picture to the side.
Then, move or insert a text capsule, into position along side the picture. It should interlock, when it's on the exact same level as the picture capsule.
Okay - I think I'm getting it - thanks. Sometimes I'm sooooo dense
It's not a case of be dense. We all need help from time to time. I'm glad I could help. It's always nice to see you btw. You're welcome.
Are you saying that with 75 hubs you have never aligned text and images side-by-side before? I never took that possibility into consideration.
If I understand correctly what Cagsil is describing, another way to do this is with the Capsule Ordering box on the right of the screen when the Hub is in Edit Mode.
Move the box representing the photo capsule just above the box representing the text capsule that you want to "interlock" it with. Highlight, then double-click on the photo capsule, and it will toggle to a half-column size; and the actual photo capsule will line up to the right of the text capsule, even though you didn't click on the box representing the text capsule, after you click on "Reorder Now" at the bottom of the Capsule Ordering box to apply the change.
Also, if you have more white space than you want, check to be sure you don't have extra unneeded blank space at the bottom of the text capsule (such as paragraph commands, if you write your text first in a word processing file). It may also be possible to trim the bottom of a picture (in Paint or something similar, or even in Word) if the original has some unused space at the bottom of it.
You guys are great - thanks.
Website Examiner - It's always gone smoothly before. This time I had problems with the white space. It only happened on one other Hub.
Sorry to hear that. I know from personal experience that a hub can look pretty awful until it is published. Even a published hub can take a few page refreshes to settle into correct alignment - again, depending on browser type. So that is the basis for the suggestions I have been trying to give you.
