I create all my Hubs in Word and I those documents are saved. But many times I revise my Hubs online and the Word documents don't reflect those edits. Do you have a suggestion for quickly backing up our Hubs?
You can just go to your Hub online, highlight the whole thing, and copy and paste it to a word document each time you make a change. It takes less than a minute to do it that way. Then, right click and save all your images to your Pictures file.
You can also save the page as a webpage, but you'll get the coding that way, too, which you may not want.
I write all my work on Word and back it up on a flash drive. We've had quite a few computer crashes over the years, and lost important documents, so I don't take chances anymore. I back up everything. Plus I can edit anything or do a big rewrite and save it too.
There's an add-on for Firefox called ScrapBook. It allows you to download all your Hubs to your computer, all at once. There's a great tutorial created by a Hubber on Youtube on how to use it right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aUmTRrEsyE
No problem, Jean. It's a good add-on, I use it to back-up my hubs and articles from my own sites. It saves the articles exactly as they are. Important to do it right and not save everything, just the articles; but that's easy, you just unclick/click the right boxes to save the right things.
Hi Brandon, I don't know what arrangements HP has made for backing up the site. I've never seen a post from Paul Deeds about that. Maybe when he comes in on Monday he'll see this thread. (They are expecting aftershocks. . .)
I just save all my stuff in an email because I have so much on my desktop (or sometimes in word saved in email; either way) and I fear of having my desktop wiped out someday; has happened before and I lost great pictures.
You just download their free program and your files will automatically be backed up once a day. If your computer crashes, you just go to the website and download all of your files or they will mail you a CD.
To back up with mozy you have to first download all your hubs to your computer. You can download your entire sub-domain (hubs, pictures, videos, comments & all) with a free program called HTTrack Website Copier from http://www.httrack.com/. Once that's done you can use mozy to back up your computer online.
I use HTTrack Website Copier rather than scrapbook because it is not Firefox dependent.
You can't copy and paste from a screenshot. If you ever need to repost any content that's been lost, you'll have to do it from the screenshot manually - letter by letter, word for word. Not very convenient at all.
I am really annoyed. I really dont understand whats the point in those hubs. Or are they really allowed in here? The pics are posted mostly by someone from India and I dont know what sort of value is added on hubpages...
Help! I woke up this morning to find that one of my mid-range performing hubs, "What is Creation, by Definition?" (http://lauraschneider.hubpages.com/hub/What-is-creation) had plummeted to a score of 55. It...
When I add pictures to my hubs in an effort to improve them, they are huge! I don't see a way to change the size. We used to have Full, Half, and Quarter. What are we supposed to do now? I notice they get smaller if I...
I've been working on updating my hubs. I've added a lot of new photos etc. I am wondering if too many photos are just slowing down my pages and are hurting more than helping. The reason I ask is that the more I update,...
When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added...
