Above the title I created, Hubpages has a category written in red. Some of my hubs are getting placed in fitting categories but other aren't. For example, I wrote a hub about Stephen Ira Beatty, the transgender son of Warren Beatty. It has "Soap Opera" written above the title rather than something more suitable such as "Celebrities," "LGBT," etc. Do I have any control over this? How can I change these? Thanks!
You can access and edit the topic each Hub is classified under from this page in your account settings,
If you can find an existing topic category/subcategory that more accurately represents your hub, go for it. I can't see HP minding that.
At top-of-page in edit mode, you will see "Topic 'whatever' click to edit "
I have never seen this happen. Hub Pages has never changed any category I've selected for any hub, even those which fellow Hubbers have later told me would do better in a different category.
