Can hub URL be changed to match revised hub title?

    I started to draft a new hub and decided to change the title. Unfortunately the hub URL still has the original title in it. Is it possible to get the URL changed to match the revised title?

      I just wrote a Hub about this issue:

    No. Once you make the URL, that's what you're living with.

    It's best to make the URL a general keyword that relates to the hub subject you're going to write (when setting up the hub), so that if you change the title, the URL will still relate to the topic.


    For example: (It's not the best example, but it's one nonetheless)

    URL: hubpages.com/hub/coffee-beans
    Original title: How to choose coffee beans that are fresh
    Revised title: Choosing coffee beans

    Versus:

    URL: hubpages.com/hub/How-to-choose-coffee-beans-that-are-fresh
    Original title: How to choose coffee beans that are fresh
    Revised title: Choosing coffee beans (and now the URL doesn't match)

    That's a shame. Guess I can always use the short URL we're given instead with the hub title name next to it. Thanks for the tip about making the URL more general before you begin - very sensible once it's pointed out but I probably wouldn't have thought about it by myself!!
