    I'd like to post via Microsoft Word. It asks for the API and URL blog post address (which I assume is my address).

      i dont think you will be able to use that process for hubs...usually such 3rd party posters require a single web address to post to like a blog has, with hubs you have a unique address for every single hub

        I didn't know that. But when you want someone to read something you've written you give them the start up address, right? But when I want to write another article, am I supposed to begin with another Hub? I've been editing and adding another text box, another picture, etc. It seems a little cumbersome. When I do that the text box is at the bottom and then you have to rearrange it. Maybe I'm doing this wrong and I need to do another Hub everytime I want to post?

    Try Copy and Paste

    Are you referring to Hubpages or a blog?  You can cut and paste from Word into a Hubpages capsule.

    I don't understand the API and URL blog post address - this doesn't sound like HubPages - can you make your question clearer?

      In Microsoft Word (at least on 2007 version) you can post directly from it. No copy and paste. It asks for an API (I don't know what that is). I guess I was thinking that the Hub was the same as a blog.

    I write all of my Hubs (three and counting!) in Word and then use copy and paste.  It can be a bit of a hassle especially if you are posting a long hub with pictures.  I find it can take quite a while to get everything placed and formatted just right.

    Is there a better way?

    Your URL Address is NOT your home address.

    Welcome to the internet, please hold on tightly, it's a bumpy ride.

    A hub is one article.

    So, if you want to write about daisies, you would write one hub about it, using text capsules, picture capsules, link capsules, whatever you like.

    Then, when you want to write about, for instance, German Chocolate Cake, you would begin a brand new Hub.

    API stands for Application Programming Interface, and is something you probably won't ever deal with on your end.  It's more for programmers and XML coders, among other highly technical things.

    Yeah although API is  a term used by programmers, all of us use API in most of our applications.

    My original comment to you holds true....if you are in fact creating  anew text box for each every article within every hub......then yep,,,you are screwing up big time... a text box is nothing more than a paragraph break/formatting tool within hubs...you must select "start new hub" with each new topic so that you can spread your exposure....word will work with a static site like blogger but since hubs creates a new address for each new hub it will not be properly configured to work with hubpages.

    so the comment about "never dealing with API on your end is 100% false...you are almost always dealing with an API when using a program that interfaces with other programs and sites, just in this case hubpages is behind the times...i use third party posting software that uses "API" for all of my posts on the internet except for hubpages.

    So FINAL ANSWER.....if you want to write in Word..your stuck to copy and paste and even then be sure to remove the extra html that is added by word.

    But using API's is everyday activity, you just dont generally know you are doing it....you were not wrong in your question, hubpages is just limited in its 3rd party accessabilty

    Thanks to everyone for clearing this up. I think I got it. Thank you especially to sunforged and gamergirl for their explanations.
