I found a few references in the forum to the question about how to save your hubs. One was two years old and the other was for Mac users. I write most of my hubs directly on the site. What is the best/easiest way to save them?
Also, should I be putting a copyright stamp on each of my hubs? Thanks.
I wish I knew how to copyright my hubs. Can you advise me?
The best easiest way to save your Hubs is to NOT create your content in them.
That reminds of something I read on the side of my husband's medicine tube yesterday. It said, "The best way to prevent getting a poison ivy rash is to avoid coming in contact with the poison ivy plant."
So what what should I do to save those hubs now?
I always save my hubs as HTML. In Google Chrome you click the 3 horizontal lines at top right of your screen and "save page as" click Webpage, HTML only. Then you will have a copy of the whole hub, formatting pictures and all.
When you are in the editing screen, look under the blue box with all the capsule types. There is an option that says Display Options. In it you will have the choice to add a copyright stamp. It will display your real name.
I always write my hubs in a word processing program. If you don't have Microsoft Word or a similar program, you can use Open Office (google it) and it has the same basic features of Microsoft Office only it's free. Write your hubs there and then copy and paste to your hub.
I keep backups of all my documents on my Google Drive and on an external hard drive. I had a major meltdown a couple of years ago with my PC, and before I got that sorted, my external drive crashed lol - so now I keep 3 copies of everything lol.
As for copyright your work is automatically copyrighted when it is created. Read the copyright link shared by relache to see how the law works. As for putting the notification on your hubs, when you are in edit mode, click on "display options" right above the section where you organize your content. You can turn on the copyright notification there.
Thanks Christin S. I will definitely do that in the future. For now, I am doing a select-all copy and paste into a Word doc.
I always write my hubs here at HP and then copy/paste them to Word when I'm finished. I then save a copy to my documents and also save them on a thumb drive.
I use this method, which another Hubber (MistyHorizon2003) told me about in the forums some time ago. It is a cinch and the author of the video gives easy-to-follow instructions. I believe he is a former Hubber.
