I have a suggestion for HubPages.
When we add a new capsule, it would be great if we could move it up or down several spaces with one click.
For example, let's say I add a photo capsule. It always appears at the bottom of the Hub. It would be great if there was a drop down menu by the vertical arrows: Move up one space. Move up four spaces, Move to top of Hub, etc..
Or is this already possible, and I just don't know how to do it?
The reorder interface in the sidebar is one way to do it (as others have explained), but if you know where you want to add a new capsule, you can also add it using the blue "add ->" button that appears on the left side of your Hub content (and it will be added to that spot rather than at the bottom of the Hub).
The fastest way to rearrange capsules is the compact drag-and-drop interface on the upper right side of the editing screen, followed by a click on the "reorder" button.
Yes, doh, so will I. I won't say how long I've spent faffing about with Amazon and text boxes trying to get the damn things to move up in line. Then thinking "oh I need to add a new box in there" and giving up before the RSI sets in.
This could bring a whole new quality to my output. er. Which is basically boxes with products in and a bit of puff about how good they are. It's top notch.
The rearrange option on the right is ideal and perfect for what you're talking about.

Can you move capsules to the left side when creating a hub?I want to vary my hubs a bit more and haven't noticed a way to move picture or amazon capsules to the left. The arrows only point right or to change the size of the capsule. Any solutions?

How do you move a capsule using the arrows? it wont allow me to do it. I want to put another photo beside my text, not underneath it, how can I do this? I know how to use the drop and drag menu but Im wondering why I cannot use the arrows to move the capsule to wherever I want. Thank you.

I can't make it work! Instructions say DRAG PHOTO TO REORDER, but there's no way to get from the "photos"section to the "text" section. And when I try to use the alternative, the green arrows, ALL the photos are moved in a block up or down.I feel like an idiot. ...

(Very?) often it seems impossible to drag up to the top ( example for http://hubpages.com/hub/Netbeans-HelloWebApp ). The best would be either to improve this or have a shortcut "To Top" button for compensation.

If you have a long hub and need to move capsules from the bottom of your hub, it is a pain. I finally figured out the box on the right of your hub in edit mode, Organize your content. Once the hub is finished, the headings of your text boxes and your Amazon capsules are right...

The i've been trying to use the arrows to add capsules, and nearly every time I go to add a capsule under the last capsule, it just goes on top of it. I am not sure if it's the order of the capsules, or just a glitch. The last capsule is generally a text capsule, and I'm trying to add a link or...
