Easy Navigation Capsule for Hubs

  1. brandonhart100 profile image88
    brandonhart100posted 7 years ago

    Many times I hesitate to write an article over 1200 words because of how long it takes for readers to get down the page.

    You've all seen the easy navigation line to different topics and parts of articles that they put at the top of EVERY SINGLE article at Squidoo. 

    While I do like that idea, this capsule would be better.  It would allow you to put an easy navigation capsule in the top, middle,bottom, or wherever you would want in your page allowing readers to get where they want, without the frustration of scrolling.  An added option might be to check or uncheck which sections of the page that you want included or even to retitle the sections within the capsule.

    While, I have seen some hubbers do this with HTML, this facilitates the process and allows writers that don't have HTML experience to use this important feature.

      Nope.  I've never been there.  Will you please suggest a good article where I can check out this marvel of modern technology?

        Wow the delightfully bitter sarcasm was unexpected.  I always appreciate that, thanks.

          Always happy to please. lol  Actually, it was irony more than sarcasm and certainly not intended to be bitter.  I really never have been to Squidoo, although I have heard about it often here.  And I genuinely am interested in seeing an example of what you are talking about.  How can those of us who don't fit within the category of "You've all seen" know whether we like the idea or not, if we have never seen it?

            HAHA.  I should expect as much from a fellow Hoosier (I'm originally from Indianapolis).  Also bitter might have been an incorrect term, I believe the word "delicious" was intended. 

            As far as examples of this, any Squidoo page has this.  The one that I was in competition with this Christmas was
            squidoo.com/christmas-gifts

            They were able to effectively use this particular "elevator".

              Nice looking lens.

              Yeah, cute and well done. I wish I were half so clever.

                brandonhart100posted 7 years agoin reply to this

                Yeah, and the nice thing about a large lens like this is they could make it large, do some nice and well thought out backlinking, and then just change from 2010 to 2011 each year.  In essence it's so large it's a mini website.

                I wouldn't try to beat this lens in overall hits, but I also wouldn't ever try to spend that much time on an individual page.  Anyway, if HP had a navigation capsule it would allow a medium sized page to at least be in competition with that type of page.

          I think you totally misunderstood Aficionado.


          However, if I could interest you in making the same comment to someone else on a different thread, it would be perfectly appropriate.

    Pandoras Boxposted 7 years ago

    Yeah I asked for that months and months ago. Didn't happen.

    There is a way, but it's a rather tedious process. Let me get you the link to Darkside's hub on it.

      @pandoras box - Thanks for this, I'm sure this is one way to do it.  I have noticed others that have done it similarly without using the links and it seems like their lagtime is not as noticeable.

        ?

        someone has created navigation links without using links?

        1. brandonhart100 profile image88
          brandonhart100posted 7 years agoin reply to this

          @sunforged - I just mean in a different way than Darkside has done it through the use of the links capsule.  I'm actually not sure how they've done it.  Maybe through photos?

    Goodness gracious what is so wrong with everybody?

    Okay Brandon that one deserves the bitter sarcasm comment.

    And people think I'm a witch...

    I may as well go back to the petty and hateful rel and pol forums.

      Actually I was just starting to think we were all getting along splendidly, but I am a brutally honest and blunt person after all. smile

    LOL.  Maybe we're all suffering from rel-pol-forum withdrawal or something  lol  .

    Now that I know brandonhart100 has Hoosier roots, I can find a way to track him down IRL.  Muwahahahahahaaaaa!!! (Just kidding, bh100)

    I guess this is why I've converted from thinking smiley faces are dippy and inane to believing they are an essential and effective element of internet written conversations. hmm  smile

    I'll check out the lens mentioned and chat some more later.  Too much other IRL stuff requiring attention - I've hidden from it for far too long today.

    Ciao, everyone.
