    When I publish my new hub tomorrow about the 100 greatest movies you can enjoy my link capsule that went total apeshit on me.  It happens all the time with link capsules.

    Anyone else had to deal with this?

    I post the link tomorrow when I publish.

    Yes, I've been having trouble with links capsules as well lately. I already noticed that Hub Pages is browser-sensitive (both Safari and Google Chrome won't allow me to edit and publish hubs), but even if I use IE the links capsule doesn't always work.

    Yes, Google need to fix Chrome. Chrome is little fast but needs some work.cool

    I have had trouble with links that I have tested and added, only not so show up when I publish. It is very frustrating.

    DJ the only way I have found to get around that is to link IN THE TEXT rather than in the link capsules..If you have alot of links or alot of words the link capsules are worthless.
    Hope this helps

    Thanks Mary.   I will definitely need a new strategy unitl I hear from someone on HubPages about it.  They have a new WebFUNKGuru guy don't they???

    I've been having all problems with link capsules today.  First, I put the links in, save it and come back later, and all the links are gone.  This has happened to about four different hubs I was outling today.

      Oh, we're always working for all of you beautiful Hubbers. smile

      I'm not the WebFUNKGuru that you speak of, but I do know that we are currently taking a look over the link capsule and are taking suggestions on how to improve it.

      So, you're saying that you'd actually like it to work correctly? Ok, I'll write that down....it seems pretty important.

      Any other suggestions?

        Well, it might be nice if we could have an image linking to a site, kindalike an image withing an anchor in html-speak.

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for all the feedback on the link capsule.  I do have some good news.

    I wanted to let you know that we are planning a major clean up of the link capsule in the next 1-2 weeks.

    The goal is to simplify it and get it to work reliably on IE and Firefox.

    We are also looking to see what's involved with supporting Safari and Chrome.  We would love to support both so it's just a matter of figuring out what changes are needed.  The big hurdle is getting Chrome and Safari to work reliably with the text capsule.

    Please keep the feedback coming. 

    -Larry
