How do I make the large gray boxes on my page that I have begun seeing in hubs?
I have looked in editing tools and tried them but I am not doing something correctly. They are used in hubs to showcase a point or a quote usually.
Please advise and thanks.
Hi ps, these grey boxes are in fact the "call out" feature. When you hover over the "insert capsule" in edit mode where you can select text, photo, Amazon, eBay etc....call out is the last choice in the menu.
That is great information John I was also looking for that information. I can make then and scan them into a but it is a lot of trouble and time consuming.
Hi PS, yes, John is correct. You can choose it to be a quote and it will place the quotations or you can just use it a big gray box to highlight something. I love them for quotes. Shyron it is no trouble at all.
Patricia, I recently needed to use those grey boxes on one of my hubs, and went searching to find out how.
I found a "sort of" explanation, which eventually helped me along the way, but I almost lost the will to live in reaching that goal.
Yes, it's the "call out" feature, but how confusing, and why call it that?
Good luck, and best wishes.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
After reading the comments, I may be wrong, but if you mean what I think you mean, you have to be in edit mode and the text you want to highlight has to be FLUSHED RIGHT. Once you have your text in "right position," three small boxes appear on the upper left of the template. You can choose white, gray, or blue. Click on the one you want and when you're done entering the quote or text, save it and it will appear highlighted in your hub.
I hope I've helped!

I don't understand something.If the average time people spend on an article is 4.5 minutes, how can the bounce rate be 90%? Doesn't 'bounce' mean that they just go on the site for a split second and then go off?
