Downloading your articles from the Helium Network

Posted by | Uncategorized | 7 Comments

NOTE: ONLY download the articles that you have written.

Log in to the dashboard and click Helium Publishing from your left hand menu. Then click Rates, Ranks & Views. You will notice you no longer have the Revise button. It has been replaced by Download or Remove options.

If you do not see a Download or Remove button, this indicates that the article is not live on any 360 site. You can still find the article text within your Completed Work.

Find the article you’d like to download and click the Download button. Note: You can not download articles in bulk; each article will have to be downloaded one at a time.

Next, open up the word processor with which you would like to save your article. (We recommend Microsoft Word or WordPad.) Click File > Open. Then select your Downloads folder. The file will automatically download with a .txt extension, so make sure to select All File Types in your search criteria.

Find your downloaded article and click Open. The file will include the headline, abstract, keywords, and article body. Make sure you save the document(s) in an easy-to-remember place on your computer.

The file will appear in HTML format. This means that all style choices you made will be reflected within the text. For instance, if your article had subheads or links, they will be “translated” into HTML code within the downloaded article. If you decide to republish your article (on WordPress, for instance) your formatting will remain intact.

So, on the 360 microsite you would see:

And in the downloaded version it will appear as:

Once you have downloaded and saved your article, continue this process for each article you would like to save.

Images will not be downloaded. Save your images to your computer if you would like to maintain access to them.

You will not be able to download articles that have been deleted. You will have to copy them from your Completed Work. For directions on how to do this, click here.

Note: This will not delete your articles from the Helium Publishing dashboard. It will simply unpublish them from the live microsites. As a result, your content will not generate ad revenue nor will it be searchable on the Web.

Note: If you intend to remove your articles, you may want to download it first.

Log in to the dashboard and click Helium Publishing from your left hand menu. Then click Rates, Ranks & Views. You will notice you no longer have the Revise button. It has been replaced by Download or Remove options.

If you do not see a Download or Remove button, this indicates that the article is not live on any 360 site. You can still find the article text within your Completed Work.

Find the article you’d like to remove from the 360 microsite and click the Remove button. You will be prompted to confirm that you’d like to complete this action. Note: If you choose to remove an article, the action cannot be undone.

If you delete something unintentionally, however, you can still find the text within your Completed Work.

NOTE: ONLY download the articles that you have written.

To collect your work through Completed Work, log in to Helium Network, click on Work in the left hand navigation menu, and then click on Completed Work.

Create a filter to sort out the articles. You can do this by clicking Create Tab in the top right corner. You can create up to five tabs and edit them as need be. Select the Helium Write stage to display the articles you have written. This will appear as a tab in your Completed Work.

Find the article you’d like to copy.

Click on the topic of the article you’d like to copy.

Highlight the text you’d like to copy. If you would like to copy the headlines, keywords and abstract as well, it would be best to copy these separately. Once the text you’d like to copy it highlighted, press the Ctrl key, and while keeping it pressed, and press the C key.

Next, open a blank document such as Microsoft Word or Notepad, press Ctrl and then V to paste the text into the word processor. Make sure you save the document somewhere where you can find it easily.

Repeat this process with all of your articles that you’d like to save.

 

Details about May 21 release for Helium Publishing 360 members

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

As a result of Helium Publishing 360 shutting down, several features on the dashboard and microsites will be changing for Helium Publishing 360 writers. (Note: These changes are for Helium Publishing 360 writers, not for Helium Content Source writers.)

The details of the upcoming network changes are listed below:

  • The Create a Topic option has been removed.
  • Available Work and My Work have been cleared out for Helium Publishing 360 work.  Filters remain, but will have no results for those publishers.
  • Completed Work now allows a filter to be created that is limited to a workflow stage.  If you both edited and wrote for Helium Publishing 360 sites, you can create a filter to limit your writing work to make finding content easier.  Complete directions for copying your written work from Completed Work can be found here.

The Helium Publishing 360 menu has changed to only include Rates, Ranks and Views and the Microsite links.  Although users will no longer be able to rate, any stars they have at the time of deployment will remain as long as the sites are up, and they will earn revenue share at the increased premium.

Members will be able to download any content that is currently on a microsite and/or remove that content from the site from the Ranks, Rates and Views page. Content that could have been revised will be eligible to download or remove.  You will need to press the Envelope button under the Download column.

A file will be created named by the headline of the article.  All formatting and HTML coding is retained in the Body section of the file.  Any data like keywords and abstract are also included.  Article images are not part of the download. Members wishing to keep their images should save them from the microsite before removing.  The Download option works best using Wordpad, Textpad or Microsoft Word.  Opening this with Notepad will make it look completely unformatted. Complete directions for downloading your content can be found here.

If a member wishes to download their content, they must do so before removing.  Members who have removed their content and therefore no longer see the option in the grid must locate any content from their Completed Work.  They will have the ability to copy and paste from the Article Viewer.

The second option here is Remove.  If a user presses the X under the Remove column, they will be warned this cannot be undone.  Successfully removed content will no longer appear on the microsite, nor in their public facing biography, nor in the Rates, Ranks and Views grid. Complete directions for removing your content can be found here.

The Helium Publishing 360 microsites no longer have the Tools button.
