Something I just got a heads up about this morning which is HUGELY helpful, if your lenses are missing photos, plexo lists, etc after transfer:
Once your lenses have transferred, you can actually go back into "Edit" mode on your Squidoo lenses, from your Squidoo dashboard, and recover the missing content! While edit mode was locked/unavailable before the transfer was complete, now I'm finding it working again on my account.
Hopefully this will be the case until all transfers are complete....
Thank you so much! I unpublished one hub yesterday because searching out the links seemed daunting. You made my morning!
Thanks for that info. I also ran into a block at first so I haven't gone back, but I will.
Lenses have been available in edit mode since August 25th before the transfers began. Just the publish button is disabled.
As the first post says, edit was unavailable for a while.
Do you have to snap at or gainsay everything?
Being able to access lenses from the edit mode but with publishing frozen was first reported on August 25th. I posted that info to the Giant Squid G+ group, HubPages and Twitter that day.
I've been offering insider tips for the content move this entire process.
So because you reported one thing to be the case, you dismiss what those of us, including myself, have actually experienced?
I don't understand the attitude, why would you want to drive people away from your obvious knowledge and expertise?
Editing WAS disabled early in the process. When I first tried I would get one of the big green monsters saying editing was disabled. I took a look a couple of days ago, and it is now accessible. I have been transferring the individually tailored bios lens info I wrote into the summary boxes on the hubs.
Not sure when it was opened back up, but it was a good decision on somebody's part.
This is indeed good news. A good move by squidoo to allow editing once more
You are welcome Susan and indeed, it is good news. As much as I tried to back things up before my account was transferred, I have been dealing with huge personal and family matters that had to take precedence, so there were lenses I didn't get to save entirely. To be able to now access them on Squidoo in edit more has helped with content I could not retrieve via the Wayback Machine (like plexo text lists where the "more" text was missing.)
Thanks, Sockii! I miss out on info with my being busy tidying up my work.
I'm sorry your advice wasn't appreciated by some, here. But know that the more
info we keep fresh and understood, the better for the site overall. Keep your observations
going, they're well received by most and equally appreciated .
Oh boy... thanks for sharing this. Very helpful for Amazon snafus.
This is great. Not only Plexos didn't transfer, Squidoo's own export tool didn't save them at all! If not for the reinstated access to the Workshop, they'd be gone for good.
Great news sockii, I tried earlier on (after I pressed the transfer button, but before actually moving to HP) and I couldn't edit anything (heck I couldn't even access the Dasbhoard), so many thanks for the tip, as I thought that part is over and done with. At least until Squidoo disappears, it will be a time saver to get back missing stuff (I was using in the meantime the way back machine or the lens cache.

I'm not knocking anybody (or maybe I am) but I have seen several "Hubs" that transferred from Squidoo that are composed of nothing more than very thin content and a whole bunch of merchandising links (and even one lady who pimped her own Etsy page multiple times in her "Hub")....

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

This drop in traffic seems to have affected the majority of us who transitioned here from Squidoo. After we updated our articles are traffic virtually stopped dead. The question is why? Was our redirect from Squidoo killed with the update? What the heck happened? Please try to figure out why the...

I have just been back to edit this hub <link snipped> and find a list of obscene words at the top of the page. What is happening? Thanks.

I'm 100% on the side of doing a proper beta test and taking time to make sure every kind of lens transfers with ease - from the small simple ones to the big long complex ones - like mine! I'm less bothered by WHEN my lenses transfer to HubPages than I am about WHETHER they all transfer intact -...

I just want to make sure I am clear on the transition information. My stuff transferred overnight, so that means that I have 4 months to clear up skulls etc before the hubs get moderated, correct?I am going to have to completely revamp quite a few former lenses due to the fact that much of my...
