Backup up my Hubs

    I'm starting to panic about the (hypothetical) day HubPages ceases to exist and I lose all my precious work.

    Does anyone have a plan B? do you take backups? how? are we protected under HubPages Terms and Conditions?

      The best way I've found for making backups is an Firefox add-on called ScrapBook. Here's a video on how to use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aUmTRrEsyE

      I created a folder in Dropbox, then Save Page on every hub. It takes the whole page with layout and images as shown on HP.  You could even save in Edit mode, if you wished. No other programs necessary.

    you can sit down one day, browse all your hubs and select save page as...create a folder for each hub and save the webpage to it or get a program which backs up content on an entire url and backup. eg clivewilliams.hubpages.com will backup all hubs under my url

      Clivewilliams, can you recommend a program that will backup the entire url? I have over a hundred hubs. Thanks.

      How do you backup all hubs when the url are separated by different categories?

    I'm old school. I just make a copy of each Hub in Microsoft Word.

    ...I titled the folder where they all reside as "Backup Hub Sh*t" big_smile

    I had to do this with 400 Squidoo pages when they decided to call it quits. I use FireFox browser for this as they are the easiest. First create a file folder where you want your documents to be saved.

    I use my 'Document' folder. Inside  'Documents' I have a folder set up which I have named "Hubpages". In the Hubpages folder, I have a file folder for each Hubpage I create. Within the Hubpage name folder are copies of all the content and images I have used for that page.

    I go to the Hubpage I want to save; right click on the page. A drop-down window will open. Click "Save as...". A window will open where you can browse to the folder you want to save the page. Remember to name the file (It is highlighted in blue) if you need to change the name.

    FireFox will create a file with everything in it and drop it into the folder you navigated to. It will also create a Firefox button that will bring up the created page in your browser (even if the page no longer exists online) when you click on it.

    If you do this when your page is first published you are ahead of the game. Then every time you update the page you can save it again the same way by overwriting the saved file in your folder.

    I hope that helps.

      Cool. I just tried it and am very happy with the experimental one. I see it saves it in my C: drive with an index. I also like that because as suggested I can edit using copy/paste with Word easily while seeing the original version. I like the idea of not having to be on HP for that. Since, I save the original document in Word with the addresses for images and etc. it should be easy to compare and contrast with new ones.

    Almost 20 years working in I.T. and I've never noticed how chrome saves pages. Brilliant !!

    Right. Chrome or Firefox. I doesn't make any difference. They both save the same and if your browser is set correctly (set to ask where you want to save downloads) you can save them to any folder you want.
