Make that "suggestion" ... Ahem ...
Anyway, I'd like to have the option (prior to publication) of either changing the hubs URL, or waiting until I'm ready to publish the Hub and then select the URL. I'd also like for the current method of URL selection to remain available... who's with me?
Other URL ideas?
Since almost no one types a URL to get to a Hub anymore, the wording of the URL is not as paramount as it was about 10 years ago.
If thousands of users can pick their URL before they make a Hub, how come it's so hard for you?
IMHO, it would be really cool to pick the URL later in the hub-making process. Of course, I tend to write directly in the capsules on about half of my hubs instead of pasting in. On those particular hubs, I'm making alterations as I go and often end up changing the title so it would rock to be able to change the URL as well. As long as the hub hasn't been published yet, it seems reasonable but I'm rather new and certainly hold no special knowledge about such things.
Anyhoo- great suggestion, I'm with you.
I agree, RooBee. That would be nice ... even when I'm pasting in already written sections for a hub, I could still be fine tuning the the precise focus and ton of a hub. The typical process for quality writing involves multiple drafts and revision, not just Keypoke, Paste'N'Publish.
If nothing else, it would give the perfectionists out there one more thing to keep playing with before sending a hub out into the world.

To share my hubs on social networks I need to go into each hub, artificially showing as a reader, to grab the link. If there was a way to grab the link without going into the hub, our stats would be more accurate.

I know that once you publish a hub you shouldn't change the title because it affects . . . well I don't fully understand it, but I know it's not a good idea, especially established hubs. However, if I did change a title...

I know we can completely change our hub titles but I wondered if the first title we used is still ours or any there after for that matter even though we changed it?

Hello Fellow Hubbers,My question is not how do I change the title after a hub has been published.My question is how will this effect links that I have already sent out. Will the links automatically be updated when I...
