Is saving a page as a 'web archive' a reasonable way to save a copy of each of my hubs? If something were to happen to HubPages would that web archive be accessible to me (including hyperlinks?) to then copy and paste? I have been copying and pasting images and all into a new Text Editor file and saving as a Rich Text File with Attachments. Works fine, just wondering if there's a better (faster) way. I guess part of my question is really "what the heck is a web archive file, exactly...?" How do you save copies of your Hubs?

THIS is what I was looking for! I literally spent hours over the last 2 days (since HP was off and on) saving all my hubs one at a time by copying and pasting into Text Edit and saving as a RTF w/attachments (to preserve the links). This is awesome!
Is there something similar a Safari user can do?
I'm not sure, but you can download the FireFox browser for Macs. If you don't like FF for browsing, just uninstall it after you have used Scrapbook to download all of your hubs.
I'm not positive if this is the same, since I haven't tried either but there is a free one called iClip Lite from Apple that seems like it's similar:
Thx Georgie! Do you save as a web archive? I was wondering if the links will be preserved if anything happens to HubPages? I'm not really sure how the dynamics of that type of file work...should have tested while HP was down for hours yesterday AM!!
Links will be saved, but won't go anywhere if they're links to HubPages. When I save them, it saves everything on the page.
good to know! thank you!
Thx, Duffsmom! I don't always write in my text editor, and I almost always do most of my editing in HP. As my hubs evolve over time the original becomes a far cry from the 'living' published version so it's hard to keep up w/ links & everything!
