Suggestion - A downloadable template that you could upload!!

    Im in an area which has limited internet access at the moment, but would like to keep writing. Having a downloadable template would be a fantastic help for this!! I could do my hubs and have them ready to upload the minute I get to a good internet area.

    Many hubbers write their hubs in word before they upload them so they have a permanent offline backup copy.

    Why not just do that?

    Ive always wanted to make this suggestion also.

    A big downside is that this would be the type of functionality that could be easily adapted by spammers etc and used to easily upload massive amounts of content.

    So I imagine, it wont happen.

    I want the function as an HP writer but if I was a HP owner I would not take the risk of the extra work it might create for me.

      The above is a most serious issue.

      When you start a new Hub, you have the option to copy the template and capsule layout of one of your already-existing Hubs.  I find this works quite admirably.

    I also use a word file to write my hubs - proofread and separate it into usable blocks of text for text capsules.  I add the urls for videos, photos, links etc.  and get it as close to how I want it as I can - then lay out all the capsules I will need and cut and paste.  It goes very quickly this way and I have everything (except photos from my own computer) all ready to upload.  Sometimes I do a last proofread just to make sure I haven't made anymore mistakes while it is in PREVIEW before I publish it.

    Thats a good idea but the question is couldn't someone then use it to upload it to their own webpage virtually stealing the format? I'm not sure but its possible.

    There are many ways that a Hub can be made different and made to stand out. Take more advantage of things like the Youtube videos or links or graphics or photos or artwork. I have been experimenting with the look of some of my hubs lately, and my rating went up slightly!

    The idea of having templates is curious however. I wonder are there ways of adding more to Hubs in other ways? Would people like to have more control over Fonts and their appearance, for example? Or templates that had different arrangements for adverts on the hubs as they appeared? Like being able to choose the size of the ads on our pages?? Just wondering what people think about that. Sorry if I am getting off the point here a wee bit.

    Actually I would really like the idea of a downloadable Hub App which could be linked to your account, saved local copies of your work, etc.

      I agree, I only found the want for it when I could not access the internet from where I was due to being in a no internet zone. What you describe is good.

    I'd be happy if I could do Hubs from my iPad :-(

    An XML template would be easy enough (yes, I realize 90% or more have no idea what that means)

    Something like

    My wonderful hub
    a hub tag
    another tag
    blah blah
    <photo full>
    blah blah
