What's the best way to save copies of my published hubs and to re-save them following later edits?
I read somewhere that it is not unheard of for a user generated website to close overnight without notice - heaven forbid :-( Any alternatives to simply copying and pasting my published hubs into Word as the back-up?
It's probably best to open you existing hub (EDIT), right click on the page and then choose 'save page'. You'll have a chance to select one of several formats and 'web page, complete' is your best shot.
You will have saved image of the hub, all text, all code, and all pictures. If you want really good backup, it is probably even better to have complete text in DOC, ODT or some other format and all graphic materials as separate files as well.
Copy-paste in Word can do the trick with short hubs and not much of graphics. Ortherwise this is pretty clumsy method with a good chance to say: ah, I'd rather start again from scratch ...
I hope this helps:)
I write in WORD first then cut and paste into the text capsules. That way I always have a copy on my hard drive.
Hi duffsmom - I do that too but by the time I get to publishing, there are a number of changes made via start a new hub/hubtool. Plus subsequent edits/updates mean some of my hubs are twice the length they were when I first drafted them in Word, LOL.

Hubbers, can you weigh in on whether you save copies of your hubs off-line (electronically or by printing)? As my hubs have increased, my investment has as well. It leaves me to wonder whether it is a good idea to have back-ups. Thoughts? Suggestions?

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a copy as "removed". Is there meant to be?It would be an awesome...

Some of my transferred lenses look like crap as a hub, mainly because they have poetry in them, which won't display as neat as I want them to. It will take some time to repair those hubs and I think it would be best to unpublish those hubs and publish them again when fixed. I think it wouldn't do...

I just got hit by a duplicate content unpublishing of one of my articles. For the record, it is my own work which I had originally published on another platform and wanted to relocate here. After deleting the article from the original site, I submitted a request with Google to have that deindexed...
