When your looking to create a back up of your published Hubpages, you dont have to do anything quite so time intensive as "copying and pasting" to word or notepad or whatever.
1. Open Selected Hub
2. Scroll to bottom
3. Find "Print" (next to share, usually above comments when included)
4. This will create a print friendly version of the page sans adsense and other affiliate modules
5. optional - exclude images, this will include only your text
6. Now select "save to pdf"
Voila, a 2 click backup procedure
I had never noticed that!(slaps forehead!) Thank you for pointing it out.
Dang, bummer thanks so much had I read this before it would save me all the trouble. Thanks a ton.
Thanks Sunforged that is so great to find out. You always seem to have useful information for us.
Sunforged, Thanks for the info. I have been labouring myself invein for nothing all this while
Now that is a tip! thank you! we can only do this Hub by Hub?
Thank, even though it's on every hub, you tend to miss it unless someone points it out to you.
I used a different solution to backup my hubs. It might be a good way for someone with a lot of hubs to capture at once.
Install scrapbook plugin for firefox.
Go to your my account hubpage
Select scrapbook->capture page as
Select one link down capture
This will then save each of your hubs to your computer.
The scrapbook plugin is cool, it does the same function as "save page as"
which will allow one to view the page offline and it allows you to do this in bulk.
It doesnt really create a manageable text backup though as one would still have to go through the .htm file and separate text from the rest of the code.
Or are their features Im not seeing?
This pdf thing is pretty cool. Could you put them all in 1 pdf file, so I have all my hubs together like a little booklet?
Now I always type my hubs in words first and then copy-paste them into hubs. But whenever I edit them, i have to edit both the words document and the hub. Lots of work
Hey, that's great. I didn't even notice. Thanks for the tip. I used to copy and paste. Now I don't need it any more.

I have been sharing the links to other hubs using my referral tracker. For newbies, it can be found at the bottom of each hubpage. This is earning me a little extra money. I don't spam, but share the links that I know...

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?

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would...

On New Year's Day I acquired my 500th follower. In addition to this, I hope to reach another milestone within the next two weeks - the 500,000th visit to my hubs in 4 years. As far as page visits is concerned my goal...
