So, apparently every single one of my hubs now has a new deficiency - it's "missing a summary".
How do I add this?
Where do I add this?
In which capsule is this placed?
Where is that capsule located?
On AC (only for example!), it gives you a (field?) in which to briefly describe your piece. Same for Bukisa. TIBU is no more, your blog is your business. NLDline is formatted such that the summary is a given based on the category - and as you might guess, has a very specific readership demographic anyway. MySnot - well, is just plain irrelevant. Helium asks for no such summary other than that which would be included as a part of good solid writing *within* the piece.
So - whutta I gotta do?
Unless "A" is a very good grade, I don't want my menu stained with 'em!
Thanks very much.
Hi Stan! When in edit mode in one of your hubs, to the right is a column and at the top is Add More Capsules. Under that is the Tip box, and under that is a box with 5 links as headers. The fourth one is "Summary". Clicking that opens a box in which to put your summary for that hub.
When in edit mode for the hub, look to the right - the summary button is in the same area as the button to add tags.
Click edit on any hub, then look to the right hand side to where it says
Summary (it will be alongside other options)
Click summary, then type a suitable introduction into the box.
Wow - thank you, folks. Both for your clear answers (I found the 'summary' thing), and for answering *so* quickly!
Now gonna swallow hard and see if it's actually easy to do. I hope the "doing" isn't gonna require as much "intuition" or tutorial as finding the darn thing.
Cues! I need cues and articulated directions, da*n it! Ooops, sorry - got carried away. Oh - wait - golly, THIS isn't the NLD forum - my bad!
Thanks again, folks.
I'm a bit miffed!
I wrote about this change a couple of months ago and hardly anyone noticed.
Probably because I can't write very well, sorry folks, I tried!
All good Izzy, to be honest I thought I had mine covered.
I think too ,specially for new people its all a bit overwhelming at times.
Gosh I was once and that was before all the hoop la
In my case - and you'd have to read my bio and several pieces to begin to understand why, you'd have had to personally email me about such a change, and likely endure several correspondences from me as I tried to figure what-all you were talking about.
I'm sure your writing was fine. But for me it's like this: If I'm driving along the road and I'm *DETERMINED* and *POSSESSED* to absolutely NOT MISS my destination (likely new) - I'm looking for ONE thing - "Okay - 123 Main Street, 123 Main Street, 123 Main Street.".....
I literaly - yes *literally* will miss seeing almost everything else. Well, whatever the second step is from entering the eye to being "stamped" in the brain. No stamping. I'm looking for 123 Main Street and that is IT!
"Fire? There was fire? Where?"
"No way! A naked guy was running down the sidewalk?? I guess it must have been on the even-numbered side of the street!"

Is it right to add a text capsule or a picture to a hub I wrote long ago?I like to go through my hub especially when I get a comment on one of my older hubs. Sometimes I feel that there could have been some more information there. Is it ok to add some more text matter or a picture to the hub?

Why does it say I'm missing a summary on all my hubs? How do I fix that?

Why do all my hubs now say that they are missing a summary? How do you add a summary to hubs?

I wonder if it would be possible to add the "add a picture" feature into the text capsule. I do alot of pictures to the right of my text but the extra step of adding the picture capsule sizing it moving up up from the bottom of the stack gets excruciating. If you could allow us to edit...

An "A" next to the tittle of one of my hubs right after the red/blue arrowsI've noticed a very faint "A" next to the tittle of one of my hubs right after the red/blue arrow. Does anyone know what this means?

If one is left behind in technoogical race, he is always at a loss. It always hurts me that there is no provision for pasting a HTML code at hubpages. There may be a policy of HP for not including this element. All the hubbers loose greatly on this account. Although I am sure some of...
