I just spent a hour ranting and raving and trying to figure out what was wrong with a Hub that I kept getting "syntax error" on.
I deleted and republished the Hub twice and was going crazy till I realized that the URL had an extra hyphen in it!

And that's why that little warning is up there to make sure of your URL BEFORE you continue.
Of course "I" thought I was used to that and overlooked one basic, simple detail.

Like the one I'm getting now....LOL
That's why I usually just use the automated URL that crops up after I type in the title. I can always change the title later, and the URL can be shorter.
