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.
