How can you edit an article while still making it available for people to read?
As long as you don't unpublish it, you will be live editing.
You can also copy and paste your hub into a word processing program, do your edits, then re enter the updated post.
What Bev and Natalie have told you is the right way to edit a hub. But, just know that you do not have to hit the fiinished editing for the hub to publish. Your hub keeps auto-updating while you make edits.
I, therefore, work with hidden capsules when editing. I make copies of the capsule I want to edit and then edit it in hidden mode. It's not that important. But, since you asked for the info, I'm just throwing it out there.
Thanks, Brandon. You always have good tips and they're much appreciated.
Thanks, Time Traveler. That sounds like a good idea.

Hi. I am pretty new to this. When we are in the editing mode on one of our Hubs, one button is "unpublish." Are we supposed to retire our articles after a bit of time? I guess that diminished traffic will cause our author rating and scores to start falling. ...

If I unpublish an article here, can I republish it on another site?
by Beth100 7 years ago
When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...
