I read Shadesbreath’s article for help with establishing a hub. I have learning disabilities. This helps so much! I am stuck on step number five. I keep trying. I have deleted my cookies and still no luck.
My problem is that when I got to step five, my screen options is different. It will not let me choose a template. I have the option for a gray block labeled article. I clicked that button. I then click the continue button toward the end. I keep get the same error message: Enter a hub unique address
How can I fix this, please?
The title of my article is Can smoking lead to another Prohibition Era?
It sounds like you may be trying to publish a Hub using a URL was already used on HubPages.com.
Each URL can only be used once on the site and they must be unique abstracted from the subdomain. So if matthewmeyer.hubpages.com/Title-of-Hub is already in use, then tiffanyapril.hubpages.com/Title-of-Hub will not be allowed. You should be able to change the URL and proceed.
The title you enter is used to generate the URL, so you can change the title and the URL will change as well, or you can edit the URL directly by clicking the "edit" button next to it. http://hubpages.com/faq/#Name-Hub
Unfortunately that article is a few years old and a bit out of date.
Here's a picture of what I think you are trying to do: I tried this and it worked, obviously I didn't create the hub because I didn't want to take your title, but if you do this and click on the 'Continue' button you should be able to start editing.
If you would like, for example, the health article template rather than the basic article, all you would need to do is click on the light gray button that says 'Health Article Template' and if it goes dark grey then it's been selected.
I've been here 4 years, and still run into that particular annoying bit with the URL box now and again.
It usually turns out that I've typed it as a normal title, using spaces and punctuation, which are not allowed in the URL box. (DOH!) It all has to be run together as if it were a single, long word. Every time this happens, I have to stop and smack myself upside the head.
Hi Welcome To The Hubpages! I get that from time to time as well. Scroll To the very top and type the title of your Hub in the search engine box. The search engine box should look pink with red script, don't space and leave out quotation marks.
