I started writing a hub that didn't turn out like I wanted. I had saved it, without ever publishing it. When I started a new hub, I decided to just delete the info in that original hub and replace it with the new content.
The one thing that didn't occur to me was the URL! After publishing the new hub, I noticed it still had the old URL, so I went into editing mode, but couldn't find anyplace to change the URL. Is it possible to edit a hub's URL?!
Changing the URL of a published hub is not possible, the only alternative way is:
Create new hub with your desired url, transfer the contents and delete the old one.
The URL is what the search engines use to keep track of a page. So if you change it, it's the same as deleting an old page and creating a new one.
Which is exactly what you have to do on Hubpages to change it.
Thanks, that's kind of what I figured. I deleted the old hub and created a new one with a proper URL. Live and learn, I guess!

After hitting the publish button, I noticed I had made a typo in my hub's title. I went in and corrected it in the title, but it still shows up in the URL with the typo! Is there any way I can correct this?Thanks.Katie

I decided to change the title of my hub after I had published it (more thorough keyword research) and now I can't figure out how to change the title in the URL as well. Help, anyone?

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank...
