This has probably been brought up before but when you put Amazon capsules in the right side of the page not only do the titles wrap into the right side of the page, but also the comments so that people can't read everything that you've written.
My concern is more with the portion that I've written myself (rather than those extremely long titles that Amazon gives to products).
Isn't there any way to fix this?
As Cagsil and I discussed below this is a problem when you check the "number the list" option for an Amazon capsule and have it aligned to the right. I generally don't use the "number the list" option because of this issue so I thought I would bring it to your attention.
An example would be this hub - http://hubpages.com/hub/motherboard which I am currently in the process of re-writing
See just the first "Top 5" list to see how the words go into the "related hubs" and "tags" section.
Ok - after testing again I've noticed that Mozilla doesn't seem to have this problem but IE, Chrome, and Safari do.
I also notice a similar problem "without" just the numbered list when using a browser like Chrome for this hub:
Thanks, we've added investigating this to our TODO list.
So the issue seems to be that webkit based browsers (chrome and safari) don't wrap long words at the forward slash character, while firefox does. This causes things like "P67/CrossFireX&SLI/SATA3&USB3.0/A&GbE/ATX" in product names to "blow up" the box in which they are contained.
The immediate solution you have is to select a different version of the products that have long "words" in them (which I realize may not always be possible on Amazon). We will see if there is something we can do on our side, but that may take some time ...
Amazon words from Amazon capsules are not going to wrap around anything. Never have and the descriptions are usually short to begin with.
Aside from that, when an Amazon capsule is on the right side, it would wrap around anything anyways. It would keep the wording in a tight formation, which would go straight down.
Cagsil - I realize where the words would have to go and I'm not sure whether they need to figure out how to shorten the titles or if it's even possible.
When you place your own comments in there you have control over how long it will be, but even a single sentence goes straight into the right side of the page.
The Amazon words do in fact wrap and so do comments right now... they just go into the ads and other hub suggestions first before going into the next line.
Okay, it seems as though we(you and I) are not on the same page.
I'm not sure what you mean by "comments"? Are you talking about headers? If so, then they will not wrap unless there is something next to it. If the capsule is on the right side, then it automatically wraps.
I don't understand this statement. I reviewed a one of my hubs that has headers on the Amazon capsules and ALL of the headers wrap. Maybe I am misunderstanding you?
I apologize everything seems to work correctly except for when you Number the list.
If you number the list and put the Amazon capsule into the right side of the page - everything goes into the side of the page.
The best method for using Amazon capsules is to use them individually for each product. It's an option to put more than one product in a capsule, but that isn't the best format.
I understand what you are saying now and that could be a glitch in the Amazon capsule that needs to be brought to the attention of staff.
While individual product reviews are effective in most cases - top ten lists with 10 products in an Amazon capsule can be very effective money makers especially if you diversify with both brand and product price.
I should probably re-title this entry so that it will draw the appropriate attention.
Actually, the "hint" suggestion on hubs, you know the spots on the right side that have "?" while in edit modes states that individual products in capsules is most effective. However, if your experience says otherwise, then feel free to do as you please.
If you want to draw attention, put it in the "Need Help" section. It appears that that section is watched more than this one is. And rewording your title might be good too.
Sorry I could not help more.
I visited that hub and don't see what you are talking about. I guess, since Paul is here, I'm out of the conversation. Good luck.

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs, moving much of my text from text capsules into the Amazon description fields. This...

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 was totally dismayed to learn that Ad-Blocking software is used by 41% of people. (The statistic appeared in "The Week" magazine.) That reduces impressions. We get 60% of views, but only 59% of those views yield ad impressions so only 35% of our views gives us earnings. If you get 1000...

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

I am realizing that sometimes up to 2/3 of my audience is using smartphones to access my hubs, yet 90% of my Amazon sales are from desktop/laptop/tablet users. This makes me think that a lot of smartphone users are simply not scrolling to the right or perhaps they are not motivated to spend because...
