I think the new additions to the capsules are a great idea! Can't wait to try them out!
I have a suggestion for what might be another useful tool, if such a thing is possible.
I also blog, and as blogs contain more "purely personal" entries, I sometimes put an link to one of my related Hub Pages articles. (Outbound from blog; inbound to HP.)
However, as brevity is not my strong suit, (I have no problem hitting a 400-word minimum! ), it would be super deluxe if there was some way to have a link to to a specific capsule within the article, in case folks wanted only to reference the particular relevant bit.
Naturally, once on HP, they probably would read the rest of the article anyway, but many people nowadays are impatient, and don't want to read an entire article to find one snippet of information.
Just a thought....hope it is possible, and that others might find this desirable as well.
You actually can do that now, although it's a bit convoluted. Here's a hub on it from Darkside: http://hubpages.com/hub/tableofcontents
if you are using chrome or opera , you can just "inspect element" and get the mod/div id
With firefox and the web developer or firebug add-on you can do the same
one of the above prob works with IE, but why bother
I avoid Firefox--it causes me too many problems. Chrome is not a lot better. IE is my preferred and default browser.
ok - so you use chrome
click inspect element (right click) on what ever module you want to link to.
read DS hub for info on format of link - but inspect element is far faster for getting the mod/div id then scanning source code

Hi, just started a new hub. It will not save with the "Done Editing" button and I cannot do any edits on it (ie, I do the edits, click the "done editing" button and it sits in limbo "loading"). The "loading" goes on forever and it appears I cannot update the...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

I am using Firefox. Whenever I go to edit mood it shows some error. I refreshed, restarted plenty of times but no improvement. Suggest please.

Well, I downloaded it, it seems a whole lot faster, but not i cannot edit the capsules at all. It will not update the photographs or allow me to edit the text in paragraph form....if i save it, it goes to preformatted text, so now i have to go back to IE i guess. I have been here all...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I don't see where else to place this issue--I don't think it's exactly a "bug," but more of a change that was made???At any rate, the problem is, it used to be that when you clicked on any photo in any hub, it would open the photo alone in a new temporary window without taking you away...
