    On creating a hub I received this message whilst I was creating a hub today.

    It looks like you may be using the Grammarly plugin. This is not supported and may cause issues using the HubTool.

    I have been using this tool for a long time and find it very helpful  What are the issues I can expect?

      I have been using it also since long. I never experienced any trouble. The message must have shown up erroneously.

        No, it shows up on every capsule now.  Quite annoying!

          I have not written any hub recently. So, I can't tell.

      @ smile sallybea, I do not care that much to be humiliated, but please tell me what is Grammarly and how pray tell do use it?
      P.S.: I always try to leave hubbers with a smile that way when I leave, I am always giving something to remember me.

        Hi, Kenneth, Grammarly is a free grammar checker which can be downloaded for free online.

    Hub pages uses autobot to check your grammar and spellings it may cause an issue with their program.

      Interesting!  They never had a spell check before.  It has been a little while since I wrote a new Hub.

    Hi Sally,
    Although I haven't seen the message you're referring to, I have experienced some problems which may be attributed to using Grammarly.
    In a text box, if I decide to break up a large block of text into separate paragraphs and place my cursor in front of the text to drop down and hit enter, I will get it duplicated. I have seen this on hubs of others as well.

    If we don't go back and proofread, we may not notice it.

      I have had that happen in previous hubs but did not realise it was associated with Grammarly.  Thanks for that Cal-gal.   I thought it was just me:)

      I don't think it is associated with Grammarly. It can be some other issue while breaking the paragraphs. The cursor may get wrong placed or gets moved while doing so and thereby it can duplicate. It happened with me also previously.

        sallybeaposted 12 months agoin reply to this

        Not sure whether it is or not as it happened several times whilst I was writing my latest hub today.  It won't stop me using Grammarly however:)

          Let's see with other users of Grammarly if they come up here.

      This happened to me too. I had to go back a few hubs to amend when I realised what happened.

    I can't find the thread now, but a while ago, several people complained about not being able to save capsules or save Hubs, and it turned out that Grammarly was the problem.  Maybe it depends which browser you're using.

      Thanks, Marisa, I have been away for a little while and missed that thread but don't seem to be having any issues right now but good to know that...

    I got the same message yesterday while working on a hub. The only problem I noticed was that my last paragraph disappeared and I had to rewrite it before publishing. So I would suggest you just proofread your hub a final time before publishing to make sure nothing got cut out. I love Grammarly!

    1. sallybea profile image98

      I love Grammarly too, not sure what I would do without it.

        True, I also like it very much and using it for more than a year. Here also it is suggesting my mistakes immediately while typing these replies. I was using "since" in place of "for" more than a year.

    Yeah, Grammarly causes some problems with HubPages. For example, I can't add links to a hub when Grammarly is running. I'll open the hub in a different browser without the plug-in to do that edit. Grammarly is too helpful for me to stop using it and traffic has gone way up since I edited my hubs with it.

      sallybeaposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      meibel, thank you.  Surprise!  Today I did not have the same issue with adding links!  I too used to have to use another browser:)  Seems the problem we have both had may be resolved at long last:)

    As mentioned by melbel in a post above me, the Grammarly plugin does tend to cause issues with links in the text capsule. This has generated quite a few support tickets in the past, so we've made the decision to place the warning in the text capsule. In addition to interfering with the linking ability, we've also seen Grammarly cause issues with copy and pasting, and there may be other issues that we are unaware of.

      sallybeaposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      @ezhang, thank you.  Interesting to note that the links worked today for the first time using chrome whereas I have always had to use a different browser before to create links.  I do however think the benefits of using Grammarly far outweigh the disadvantages.

    I had to remove Grammarly for this. Why is Grammarly unsupported?

  9. Ivan Hernandez profile image91
    Ivan Hernandezposted 12 months ago

    Grammarly is my one word proofreader. With it, I can't make spelling or grammar errors. Why is it not supported?

    1. ezhang profile imageSTAFF
      ezhangposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      The issue is a little technical, but the basic idea is that Grammarly does not play well with the special text editor we use in our Text capsules (notice that our text capsule has special features that allow you to bold, italicize, underline, add bullet points, etc). In order to work, Grammarly needs to add it's own special code to the page, which interferes with the code and functionality of our own text editor. It's quite unfortunate.

      melbelposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      It's not that HubPages doesn't support Grammarly. It's that the Grammarly plug-in and HubPages tools interfere with one another. It's sort of like having two anti-virus programs installed on your computer: Performance issues, fighting over files, and sometimes one anti-virus program calling the other one a virus (when it's not.)

      It DOES suck because Grammarly is sooo helpful, but there are workarounds. For example, you can write a hub with Grammarly turned off, get everything looking spiffy and nice format-wise. Then, before hitting publish, go through everything with Grammarly.

      Grammarly is a life-saver and even though it does get in the way of HubPages tools, I still would highly recommend it to every hubber.

      Funnily enough, I've been writing here for years and JUST published a hub on how to do a really good job proofreading and I included Grammarly in my list. Even with the bugs, I'm happy. smile

    I just started using Grammarly today and noticed the problem.  But I can easily get around it.  I turn Grammarly off and then copy and paste my work to the Grammarly website (copy and paste it in a article that is already there) where it checks everything for me and then I make the fixes in Hub.   Takes a little longer but I get the good help.
