How can you change the name of the http associated with a hub?

    For example, here is a url associated with one of my hubs--

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Cheaper-Lamicta … er?preview


    However, the name of my hub is not the same as the name showing in the url--how do I fix this.

    =================

    Another hub, from when  I was experimenting is something like this:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/kkkkkkjjjjjjjjjj?preview

    However, this hub has to do with native american artifacts.

    Again, how do I fix this?

    Thank  you very much!

    unfortunately, the url of your hubs cannot be changed once published. The title/format etc. can be yes, by going into 'edit' mode, but not the url. It's one of those mistakes a lot of us have made... smile

    Unfortunately, the url can't be changed after you have published the hub article.  You need to carefully decide, ahead of time, on a concise url name that still gives anyone a good idea what the hub is about.

    If you wrote/developed the hub using a word processor, and just copied and pasted the text to hubpages, you could delete the current hub article and re-publish using a different url.  I'm not sure if you can save the whole current hubpages article for re-publishing though...  I could be wrong.

    "?preview" is removed when you publish your hub. So URL-string is changed and you've this URL:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Cheaper-Lamicta … y-Disorder

    Okay, here's what you have to do. Open two windows, one with the current hub that you want to change URL for, the other "start a new hub. Next put your new title in the Start a new hub, do all of your tags, etc. Lay out your text, video , and photo capsules.

    Click Edit on the old hub and copy paste All of your content to the new hub. Be sure you have everything. Unpublish the old hub and view it to verify that everything you want to change has been transferred to the new hub.

    Now you will delete all of the content from the old hub, so there will be no duplicate content. You can use this hub for building future hubs, by editting it with new content, and then when you come up with title and tags, transfer same into a new hub.

      Thank you!  I think I have fixed it.   Lesson learned.  At least I only had a few hubs to fix and not a hundred...

        Alright, so should I do a hub on it, do you think it would help others?

          I think it would be helpful to others and would give you another hub and another chance to monetize

          Faybe,

          It's always a good idea to help other hubbers when you can, and one more hub topic can only add to your 60dc roster big_smile
