Hi guys, when I edited my hub for overly promotional and whenever I click on "submit for publication" or "done editing" I get this message.
Sorry, the specified group name is not valid.
I don't have any idea what this is. HELP!
What group name have you put it in? Failing that, what category have you chosen?
Oh does it mean that I input the wrong category?? Like for instance, fashion and then I select hairstyle -> hair extensions? Because I correctly chose the right category.
But if that's not what a group name supposed to mean, then I'm stumped
A group (next to the summary button) is a name you choose just for yourself to put selected hubs into.
Although it is not necessary to group your hubs, most hubbers find that large numbers of hubs are easier to work with when grouped. You can sort your stats screen by groups, which can make a difference when you have a couple hundred hubs and want to find a particular one. HP also automatically sets up links between hubs in a group, so anything put into a particular group should be related. All about holidays, maybe or how to fix a car. Something like that.
Categories, on the other hand, are chosen when you first started the hub. You MUST choose a category, perhaps something like you indicate. These are defined and named by HP, not by you. While a group is very similar it is set up by you, for use only by your hubs.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If...

I'm pretty new to HubPages (joined 6 weeks ago but got "busy" about 2 weeks ago posting Hubs) -- I got spanked last week and had a hub taken down temporarily for citing direct links to the particular...

I don't know if this would be programmatically possible for you guys, but it would be REALLY nice to be able to put hubs in more than one group.For example, I might like to put my "Gift Ideas for Pirates" hub...
