Just spent the last 5 hours setting up my new hub only to see nothing had been saved/downloaded except my first text. No pictures, no other frickin capsules. What a disappointment.
It helps to save things another program... say Microsoft Word, then copy and paste into hub; that way if things wrong your original work is backed up elsewhere.
Do not despair... everything on hub pages takes longer than planned but it eventually works out.
don't let it get you down . i'm still working on completing my first hub. uggg its driving me crazy. we all get mad and lose it every once in a while . i can remember one time i was writing a little article on how great the frog gigging was down in little horseshoe bayou , yeah i'm sure all you good folks have been down there a time or two. so i was writing on my back porch , i had to write out there cause it was deer season so i thought i would write the article and get a ten point all in one shot (get it), i'm hard pressed for time . so i look up from my laptop and ooo dogies did i see a big un . i grabbed my rifle got a clean shot and fired and dog gone it when the gun kicked it knocked my pc slam off the porch and into a five gallon bucket of gear oil that i had left there from when i was working on the tractor that morning. well as you can imagine i was pretty mad , i was jumping , cussing , hooten and a hollerin my coon dog hi ball was looking at me funny and i cant prove it but i think he was laughing at me , and to top it off the deer got away . i sure hated to go to bed hungry that night but it is what it is .
take care all
If you are talking about your flower hub, it is there!
Not giving up - just had a bit of a temper tantrum. Glad there is a place to vent...lol
I don't think I was speaking for everybody...just me.
Very new at this and really working on my patience level. So many questions...
It's normal, we all had questions, and lots of them - when we were new. Ask away and most people here will do their best to help, just don't pretend it is Hubpages' fault you don't know something.
And speaking for everybody referred to yu-first, you definitely are not guilty in it
It will be fine... just take it easy, one step at a time. Do we not stumble when are will goes faster than our feet?
Welcome to Hubpages
Yes, I am staying. Thanks for checking for me!!!
Tell me about, I always feel like breaking my screen when posting a hub. It takes me half an hor to put the pictures, text, the amazone ebay and comments etc.
But I usually create my hub in Microsoft word and save it there first then copy and paste in the hub. In that way if anything goes wrong, I still got my hub stored.
So don't give up yet.. just find something to smash and you'll be back to normal
Found something to smash...please do not ask....and now back to normal. Thanks!!!!
patience helps. or take a break. we've all had our yelling at the screen moments.
I am with schoolgirlforreal - the forums were nothing I knew of or understood for months.....
The forums still are hard for me to follow...
Patience will pay and it gets much easier.
Do a little at a time - it makes it much more fun and the saving is simpler too - just a suggestion.
Thanks for keeping at it LittleSueII - HubPages has a lot to offer! I second YU_First 1's suggestion of saving text in another application first. What I tend to do is write my text somewhere else to begin with (I usually use Google Docs) and then just copy and paste it into the text capsules of a hub when I'm ready to publish.
Hope things are going well! I see you've published a bunch of new hubs and they're really fantastic!
I'm leaving unless I get that little 'e' for Hubpages Elite next to my avatar ASAP...
or unless I reach $10 in Adsence within the next 2 years
Yep, smashing things does sound like fun!! Felt like it for the last couple of days.. But things get better, I've found they usually do.
I'm glad they are working out for you. Like a lot of others I write on Word before publishing. There for a while my dogs were unplugging my computer... Yeah, NOW that was frustrating.. particularly when I was in the middle of an article. Uhuh... dead dogs.. LOL Just kidding!!

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

So .... I was just flagged for a hub I wrote last night. It was flagged as a duplicate.I didn't even cite anything in this hub. I quoted a bunch of stuff in my Anaconda piece and none of it was flagged as duplicate, so someone must have copied and pasted my new hub. Everything on...

I had two messages on my Hubs today so I took all of my Hubs down. I'm not going to fight to keep a hub going. I have seen some terrible hubs and they go on and on with never being taken off. My hubs were Do You Think Canada has better Health care? The Message was.This Hub does not conform to the...

I'd like to post via Microsoft Word. It asks for the API and URL blog post address (which I assume is my address).

Do you write straight into your hub or do you copy and paste from your wordprocessing program?Sometimes my ideas go straight into my hub particularly some of my poems. Other times I use word to play about with the text before I copy and paste into my hub. Just wondered if you use your...
