Hey New and Veteran Hubbers,
I was just editing a hub that I am presently working on, getting ready to publish after making minor adjustments.
However, I discovered a NEW feature.
Word Count on the TOP of each Text Capsule.
A very nice addition for people who don't write their hubs outside of Hubpages.
Thank you staff.
I'm writing a Hub right now, but don't see the w/c.
'At the top of each text capsule' ... no - I can't see it ...
Camlo, it should be in the framing of the capsule in the upper left hand corner.
No, no matter how hard I look. I can't really think of any logical reason why you should have it and I don't. Hmmm - strange.
Camlo, what browser are you using. I'm on Firefox.
Chrome. I think that could explain it. Thank you.
I see you posted this 17 hours ago, and you may have it now, but I have it right now and I'm using Chrome.
Hope you get it soon!
Yes! This is a GREAT feature! I sometimes write hubs in word and transfer them, but there are times I simply write them directly on HP. I love having a word count on top of each capsule!
Wow, we were in dire need of this feature with all the changes that have come in !! Good Going Team HP
Wow! I love the new feature. So much easier to keep track of the number of words for Amazon products, not that I write many product hubs. But it's nice to have the word count feature. Thanks HP! I haven't seen it yet.
A nice edition for hubbers like me who write straight in the hub, thanks team.
Thanks for the heads up Cags.
Thanks for the much awaited feature HP.
I literally have to count my words, because i write on Microsoft office one note, before transferring to the capsule.
I put up a new hub today. I could not see the word count for capsules at any point during the creation/editing process.
Aaaah yes! Another reason to Love Hub Pages!!! Another First for Innovation and Originality! Hubbers be Happy!
Can't seem to see it yet but sounds like a great new feature

what text actually counts towards your hub's word count? I know the words in the text capsule count, but how about rss feeds, news, links, polls, etc.? Is this text included in the word count?

How many Amazon capsules are allowed per how many words? I don't care personally, I never made much on Amazon. But on a few of the lenses that came over, they are almost all Amazon capsules, with maybe 200 words. I tried to tell one person in a nice way that it was an interesting topic, but that...

Do you use the text capsules directly to write hubs or do you use word and then copy paste?or do you use some other application?

On another thread, a Hubber suggested that if HubPages had a minimum word count, it would prevent some spammers.I know that a very low word count can get a Hub flagged as substandard, but perhaps it's set too low at the moment?

When "fixing" hubs I often have to exit out of the edit page to check my hubmetric stats for word count - why isn't there an option to see your word count while in edit mode? Or am I missing it?Yes, I know I can copy and paste into Word and check word count but that's even more time...

This is really not a big deal, but I am curious why there are two separate word counts for hubs. I am editing a hub and the new feature shows a word count of 1287. When I click on "done editing" and then look at the word count under the "stats/hub metrics" it shows...
