Shortly after my lenses were transferred over to HubPages, I unpublished several hubs because I just didn't know when I'd get to them and I wanted them not visible to the public until i can get to them. A person just commented on one of them.
I do not want them visible. They are former lenses that need a lot of work and do not work as hubs.
How do I actually unpublish a hub and what does the "not published" red designation mean if it actually leaves the hub published?
This might hold a clue, Kylyssa.
Perhaps the "bug that re featured content that wasn't intended to be featured" caused your problem.
I was definitely affected by that bug a few days back. All of my "unfeatured for engagement" lenses were featured again for about a day.
Last night I published then unpublished the lens that got the comment just in case. I'm going to go do the same with all the others I have purposely unpublished just in case the bug made them all somewhat just a little less than actually unpublished.
If a hub is not published, people cannot see it. Are you sure you didn't accidentally publish it again? Does your stats page say it is not published?
WHOA! I just went to do some publishing and unpublishing and guess what? The hub somehow grew a doppelganger! The doppelganger got the comment!
