OK...I'm confused. I was setting up for my next article, simply getting my title and tags set, to come back and add my text later.
When I clicked "save unpublished," I got the following "warning" (in addition to the normal 'too-short; substandard' warning):
"WARNING: You have an Amazon, eBay, Link, Rss, News, or Comments capsule in the first position"
In point of fact, I do NOT have any such positioning. By default, we are provided with a photo capsule in the first position, but not a single one of those other types appear by default.
At the point where I 'saved unpublished,' I had added NO capsules beyond what appears by default! After seeing this message, I went back into the hub, and edited it to have a text capsule appear in the first position.
It made no difference; the warning remained.
Now, before anyone jumps me to point out that it is irrelevant while the hub remains unpublished, that is not my point.
I am pointing out a glitch in the new system that wrongly identifies capsule types from the get go, and could very well become a problem for authors upon publishing if this glitch is not addressed.
Sounds like there is a glitch. I can see your point is bringing this up, it could pose a real problem.
I know I had a very hard time getting the photo capsule to display images last night. One photo I uploaded several times and then had to use the My Photo to add the pic.
The way I work around this is put a text capsule at the top and write a little note or something in it. You can always replace or delete this text later.
Hmm...interesting... I did put a text capsule first, albeit a blank one...
Thanks for the suggestion.
If you have a blank capsule as the first thing, I bet that's the problem. It has to have some content in it.
Ah--but the problem showed up before I inserted the blank text capsule, when all that was there was the default photo capsule in the first position.
And there were never any warnings popping up under these conditions except for the 'substandard--too short' warning, if all you were doing was claiming your title.)
This is a new 'trick' since the new rules. ;-)
MAirsa is correct, that happened with mine when I wasn't paying much attention to where I placed the text, below teh photo capsule....

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

I found it very hard to work with it, almost impossible. As before I clicked on Computer, press Browse,and had the picture. had all my uploaded pictures there and pressed to uploade it. Now I can't get into my picture file. I can't download all the pictures for my hubs about a country.

I just tried to correct of couple of photo attributions. When I open the capsule in edit, the photo disappears. It won't let me upload another photo either. The capsule looks strange, no icon to click to upload. Is this possibly because the links are broken and photos are no longer available? I...

....or is that already the case?There's a lot of discussion that links in photo capsules are often "unrelated". Many people are going to great lengths to create separate text boxes for photo credits etc. If we could just get the "Source URL" box in the photo capsule...

Folks, yesterday I was trying to upload some images onto an existing hub. It had been imported from Squidoo, and in the original Lens, I had used links to images on my personal web site, which apparently HubPages doesn't support. I succeeded in uploading one image to replace an imported image, and...

Sorry, folks--this is getting old for me, too.Ok, today's problem is with my first photo on my current in-progress hub,(actually a sketch I did). There are internal captions within the sketch, and no matter how much I tried to 'stretch' the text capsule with extra words, (and yes, added...
