I have just joined HubPages and have not yet created a hub but I was wondering how you cite a source.
You can create a reference list at the end of your hub with links. Or you can create links in the article. When you go to the hub creation tool, you'll see a little icon that looks like a chain. You can highlight a word or words that you are using from another source and then click the link icon and insert the link. I see people doing it all kinds of ways. You can see what is most visually appealing. I do different things based on the hub I am writing.
Great tips, LCDWriter!
I have also seen people use footnotes and formal "works cited" lists in APA and MLA styles. They become even more functional when people boost those lists with links.
Like LCDWriter says, kimberly40, it's all a matter of personal preference.
I am so delighted to hear that you're being conscientious about citing your sources!!
