We had such a good time playing with Squidoo the other day that we decided to go ahead and do the same thing with HubPages. HubPages and Squidoo are similar sites with similar goals, but they each have their own unique language when it comes to the elements involved in the process. On Squidoo you create a Lens; on HubPages you create a Hub. On Squidoo, you build your Lens using modules; on HubPages you build your Hub using capsules. It’s pretty much the same process, but things have different labels on each site.
Like Squidoo, HubPages allows one user to create multiple Hubs (or Lens, in Squidoo-talk!), so as we did with Squidoo, we need to collect some additional information along with your username and password to identify which Hub you would like to you use. Unlike Squidoo, which requires the name of the Lens, HubPages Tasks need to know the number, or ID, of your Hub. Just like Squidoo, this information is collected by your *forms Local Agent using the Site Credentials context menu option:
So far, we have created support for Links and Text for both Squidoo and HubPages, but hopefully it won’t be too long before we have added Articles, Events, and maybe even a little Spintax into the mix.
