    I am trying to start a new hub, I keep getting this message...

    "Please fix these errors before continuing:

    Please do not include spaces in the web address for your Hub."

    ??????? I dont want a one word title?

    What am I doing wrong? this has never happend before.
    Also, Im not typing in the "give your hub a unique web adress" part, I am typing in the "choose a title for your hub" part.

        first.."lost"..that was already taken
        then "Lost", also taken
        then "lost and found" you guessed it...
        taken
        then "found and lost"..and it said to not put spaces...

          May be you were typing in the address box...Coz in the address box only dashes are allowed.

    Justine just put up space in your web address.And by default hubpages set your hub title as your web address but it can be different if you manually type it in the address bar.

      thats what I dont get, Im not typing in the adress, just the title? I tried both..
      or do you mean I SHOULD be typing in the adress (with no spaces) adn letting hubpages do the title?

      use small words, Im easily confused  wink

    You can also try inserting the dashes into the title, like it should be doing automatically, or delete all spaces in the address, so it is one run-on word.

      I guess
      I just didnt want a run on word for my title, and this never happend before. Ive made like...27 hubs, and some of them have more then one word in the title...
      Oh well, thanks guys, I guess its not big deal to choose a new title with one word.  smile

    Hub title:The 10 Biggest Hubpages user mistakes
    Web Address:http://hubpages.com/hub/10-Biggest-HubPages-User-Mistakes
    So putting space in your title puts a dash in your web address and if you want you can have a diff web address if you manually type it.And In the web address you can only make use of dash.

    Make sure your cursor is in the very first space when you type in your title. Backspace to the very beginning.  See if that works.

    ok. I see, Basically, it's just the words, nothing to do with spacing or anything. Your title is used too often.
    I just tried: lost forever
    as a title, and that is not taken. u could use that, or come up with something else. And type with space, it doesn't matter, as long as it's unique.

      whaaaaa  sad
      I dont understand why I keep getting the message to NOT PUT SPACES then?
      And NOOOO I am NOT typing in the adress box? I really DO know the difference...
      Its probaly just my stupid computer having a communication breakdown with cyber space...
      I bet if I just leave it be and come back it will fix itself...

    Hey Justine,

    When I create titles, I keep in mind the URL is what matters most. What I mean by that is that the URL is more important that the title itself.

    The title can be changed afterwards to whatever you choose, but the URL is locked into whatever it is associated to the content of the Hub.

    My example: Mystery Revealed In Light of Reason?

    That is the words that are in the URL of one Hub, yet the title is different, because I changed it AFTER I establish the Hub's URL.

    The title of the Hub now is - Life's Questions Need Answers?

    However, when I established the Hub itself, many of the words I wanted to use were taken. It was necessary to bring to life alternate words, but based on a similar meaning.

    Such as, "Lost" could be "Missing", Or "Not Found" or even something else. It's only important when creating the URL, because the title can be changed afterwards.

    Hope that helped. smile
