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.
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.
Mork calling Orson, come in HubPages!
I don't think they work much on weekends.
Oh, we're always working for all of you beautiful Hubbers.
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?
if it could work correctly...uh...ALL the time that would be a big help too.
My next fan will be #333
and three is the magic number, yes it is.
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.

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 think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

I apologise to Marisa, as I have no intention of 'stealing her thunder' for her excellent hub gathering statistics on the Plunges and Surges - http://marisawright.hubpages.com/hub/Hu … es-survey. I have looked at another aspect which was not included in the survey. I looked at about 10...

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...

If I add a link at the bottom of a hub and the title has an apostrophe 's', it comes out like this:Poem: A Stay-at-Home Mum's Quiet DayIs this how the readers see such titles? If so, what can I do so that it makes sense, please?
