    For a hub I haven't yet published, I've noticed that clicking the "done editing" button doesn't seem to work. Other capsules work fine, and I exited and reopened the hub, but the issue persists.

    Hmm, anyone else having a similar problem?

      Hiya, I just went into edit mode on a hub to check, and yes you are right! Its not just you! So this is the best place for Hubstaff to check it. Don't worry, its obviously a glitch.

      Thanks for reporting this issue! Clicking "Publish Now" and "Done Editing" does work, it just does not give confirmation. I'll report this to the engineers to take a look.

    Done Editing is a useless button because any chances you make to a capsule are live the minute you hit save on the capsule. Just so you guys know if you don't already.

      Yep, you are right. That button is a placebo. Even when we don't click it, we are still ratted out to be reviewed. I know, I tried. lol

          If memory serves, it did work at first, but HP caught on. I'm pretty sure they watch me like a hawk ever since years ago when I figured out how to post on closed threads (they fixed that as well). big_smile

            But now that they can't see you, isn't it different? They can't watch you when they can't see you.

      By trial and error I had noticed that saving a capsule does what it says, making 'done editting' an additional safeguard. It's useful to know for sure, for the times I forget the 'done editting' button when I'm in a hurry to move on.
      My worst experiences have been when I am in the middle of a lengthy capsule and suddenly the Hub Pages site stops responding. That's when I lose anything that hasn't been saved. Now I try to save at the end of each paragraph to avoid rewriting.

        Yup, when I write here, I save after every paragraph too. I've had instances where I lost stuff.

    Is that true?  Because that might also be a bug too.

      It's true and if it's a bug, it's there for years now. If you look at some HP tutorial hubs around here you will see that people say you should hide a text capsule while working on it if the hub is already published etc, so that current viewers don't see a work in progress.

        I haven't been around long enough to review any of my hubs yet. But when I do, how do I go about hiding capsules I am working on?

        1. lobobrandon profile image88
          lobobrandonposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

          I copy the content into a new capsule and hit the hide capsule option.

            Thanks. I will try to remember to do that. There's so much to learn on this site.

              It's not the most important point to remember though:) so don't worry too much about it

    To be technically accurate you click the box after "Don't display this capsule:" if you what to edit in stealth mode.

      Thanks that's useful to know. When the time comes to review my articles, I would prefer to work out of view, as I am bound to make mistakes. My fear is somehow losing a whole article sometime.
