I am a new hubber. I went to create a text capsule for my first hub using my i-pad 2, but the edit box did not open - only the "subtitle" box. Is the i-pad not compatable with Hubpages' editing software?
The HubPages site is not compatible with any iPads when it comes to editing any written content.
You can administrate or participate in any other facet, but making new Hubs or editing text needs to be done via a laptop or desktop.
I have found the same thing, and it is very annoying. One reason I bought my iPad was to be able to write when I'm out and about, but I find that with Hubpages I have to write in another program, and then use Dropbox to get my writing to my desktop. I then have to paste it into the capsules. Hardly worth it!
Relache: Thank you for your reply. I am trying hard to switch to the iPad as my primary computer (especially for travelling), but I keep running into these "snags." Back to the laptop I go.
I got my iPad in April 2010, and take it everywhere when I travel, but I have to wait until I get home to write up those travel Hubs.
I think it would still be much more convenient than carrying the laptop, even if you have to wait until you get back to your home base to set up the hub.
Brainy Bunny: The iPad is great and I depend on it more and more; however, it seems that the existing world of technology has not embraced the iPad (which reminds of when Macs were not compatable with... anything). Who then needs to adapt to whom? Thanks for you response.
Relache: I can see I will have to do the same. I refuse to schlep the laptop (now that I have an iPad)- especially on long-haul trips. Thanks.
Rochelle Frank: Yes, there's nothing quite like running through the airport with the "sack-of-spuds" laptop whipping around. Travelling with the iPad is so much more...elegant. Thanks.

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting about an average of 75 hits per day on 4 hubs. Is that good? What...

Is writing hubs about making money or for the love of writing?I don't write hubs that will get me hundreds of advertisement clicks, I write because I love writing. Why do you write hubs?

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

How does someone on hubpages get a large following without writing hubs?When I am hub hopping, I have noticed that there are many people with little or no hubs and they have hundreds of followers. I see that some of them are following many people and I understand the reciprocity factor but I don't...
