I hope and pray that nothing every happens to HP, but just in case, I think it would be wise to create backup copies of all your hubs. There has been some discussion on this in the forums, but I have not seen any easy solutions, and wanted to share with you guys what I do
For those of you who are using a Mac, I use a program called Site Sucker that allows me to easily create backup copies of all my hubs in about one minute...basically, it accesses your RSS feed and siphons all the content through the software, then saves it in a neatly organized folder on your hard drive
You can check it out at sitesucker.us
Hi! Is this better than just simply using the Print feature and the bottom of each hub into a PDF? There are free conversions from pdf to Word in case you would want to edit it for a switch from HubPages to something else.
Another way is this one Jacob. Would you mind if I post this one - this is by one of the hubber Eric Graudins - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aUmTRrEsyE - Aussie accent but you can easily understand it
Thanks. I never even considered the possibility of having to back up my hubs.
I just keep the text of my hubs as a word file, with details of where I got the illustrations from and acknowledgements required noted below the main text. This is actually the file I prepare when I write a new hub. I copy and paste the content into hub capsules.
If something happened to HP, the final format our hubs appear in on here would be irrelevant. If I want to move hubs, the same thing applies. If a temporary glitch on HP destroyed a hub, it would only take me a couple of minutes to recreate it once things were back to normal.
I write everything in Word and copy/paste to my Hub capsules. I always have a backup copy of my Hubs as well as everything else I write online. Word is easier to work with than the Hub capsules anyway when I'm trying to hash out a rough draft.
Is it against the rules to copy your own hubs to your own website and post them there? Given the declining traffic this may provide an alternative. It means the articles are stored in HTML with layout etc.
Looks like its against the rules unless unpublished on hubpages first.

Do you keep backups of all your hubs?We all know that its important to backup our important data, photos and music. Backing up our hubs is a good idea too, even if only to have an easily accessible version to edit offline. Do you store an offline copy of your hubs in text format? ...

Janderson posted something really important yesterday which I think everybody here needs to read http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/132621#post2759379.If he is correct in his assumptions (which it appears he might be), it is time for all of us to start making copies of all of our hubs (if we are...

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a copy as "removed". Is there meant to be?It would be an awesome...

I have been thinking of leaving HubPages for a while now because of several reasons. With their latest ebay/amazon update I now have to reformat over 90 hubs (Some had not been published yet and I was waiting for Halloween). Rather than doing this I will use my time looking for a site and...

As a person who has devloped several sites and works with the web, I am very disappointed in the "Start a new hub format page". Everytime I try to start something on that page it keeps saying something stupid and it never allows a simple easy process to let you work through. YOu need a...

Warning: This is a bit of a rant. Please ignore if you're not in the mood for it.There's been a lot of scrambling and drastic knee-jerk reactions since the Panda update. Some have been well thought out and planned (like Nelle's move), and others are an understandably desperate attempt to get...
