Finding Hub content after network connectivity problems

    Hiya, as a newbie I didn't realise that a frozen page could entirely losed everything I had written...Is that it, if it goes it's completely gone? I'd written 3 or 4 text capsules...page froze while adding a photo and then lost everything. I saved each text capsule within the capsule but didn't see the big draft save at the top.

      Go up to your user name at the top and choose "My Account" from the dropdown box.  If anything saved it will be there.  If you open it there is an edit button so you can continue working.  That has happened to me but it has always saved.

      Typically, when you click "save" with a Capsule, whatever has been entered will be saved (Hubs are saved on a capsule-by-capsule basis, not by leaving edit mode). You will see what remains by revisiting your Hub.

      I'm so sorry about your page freezing! That's dreadfully frustrating.

      The HubTool does periodically save web content, but the ability to make these saves requires that your computer have a stable network connection.
      If you have repeated problems, then it may be an issue with your network connectivity.
      In these cases, we do suggest saving a copy of your content on your local computer.  Notepad, Notepad++, Abiword, etc. all are good options.

      In cases where you do lose connectivity while editing a Hub, you can log back into your account and see if there was an automatic save of some of the content.
      You can find all your Hubs here.

      Right now it looks like you have one Hub that is not yet published.

    HP probably has indeed saved it. But if not, there's always your browser cache.

    You should really consider writing your drafts offline on either abiword, or openoffice, or other word processing software.  Using the hubtool to write your drafts is too risky as hundreds of hubbers complain every day about how something is not working for them.  Don't chance it, get the free software mentioned above.

      I'm glad you found it!

      I usually do about 50% of my articles right in the hub tool and 50% in word.  Sometimes I write in the tool because I want to see the layout, where I need to add pictures or tables, etc.

      I haven't had a problem, really. It has always saved if the screen freezes.

      But writing in Word or the like helps with spell checking since you have to manually run the spell check on each capsule within the hub tool.

        I've been writing at IB and prefer to write on the modules there too...for the reason you state. I really prefer to see the layout as I go along...I guess I'd probably write quicker in a word processor though.

        Oh wow, I didn't know that you had to run the spell check on each of the text capsules. I thought it was automatically working because I can sometimes see the red lines like when I misspell something so I thought it was working.

    When I was new I had the same thing happen, and was unable to retrieve it here or in my cache! I learned a very important lesson as to why I should frequently save my work!

    For me, the squigglies don't appear unless I hit spell check.  What I do is check each capsule after I finish writing the article.  Then I do a read-through before publishing.

    Ceres  My version of Firefox puts the squiggly lines for misspelled words. Maybe that is what you are seeing.

      I'm using Google Chrome actually but maybe it does that like with Firefox. I'm guessing the spell check is already on in this case because when I tried clicking the spell check button in the text capsule, nothing really happened except the red lines flashed before appearing again.

    yeah  if you right click on the squiggly lines from your browser spell check, you get the correct spelling to choose. I'm using chrome in which there is a great add on called Grammarly Lite. It's free and works at the same time as you type. I really love it. It's one of the main reasons I keep writing in chrome.

      Good tip.  Going to look for that now.
