Alright, I have ... well, quite a few I thought when they were written, and use the category and sub-category thingy that Hubs were then 'grouped'. So how did these 'orphans' end up as such?
Bet you have 208!
Orphans are hubs that you have not put into your own custom groups. As the number of hubs grows it is increasingly convenient to group them in your own groups that you name. With your 200 hubs, you would find it much easier to locate any individual hub; the stats page includes a search function that will list only hubs in any chosen group.
By doing so HP also provides a link to others in the same group at the bottom of the hub, just under the vote up - vote down buttons. I think all of mine are grouped (they should be) - if you look at one and scroll to the bottom, just before the comments section, you can see this linking effect. Not my RSS feed, but a link to just a couple of hubs with arrows right and left to see others.
Hi Wilderness not all 208 of my hubs but still do have a lot I'm only asking this because - some time ago- there was a upgrade of some sort, 2010? and I had filed them, every one of them and here I am facing another set there's got to be a faster way to do this rather than spend 100 hours can't there be a lil window pop up box to make or offer suggestions? I mean, 100 hours, geez
There is an easier way than visiting each hub.
On the stats page, go to "hubs" followed by "groups". This lists all your hubs and current groups. You can drag and drop them wherever you want.
You can also assign a group when you write the hub; the button is near the "tag" button.
And thanks - I found 4 of mine that were orphans; it took 30 seconds to assign them all their proper groups.
No faster way to do this I guess.. you have to manually shift the hubs into groups.. though now you have the option of grouping them as you write your hub as there is a tab called groups near your summary. You may stand to lose if you do not group your hubs as that is what links up the two hubs at the end of each hub that you write.
yw Wilderness. I haven't written Hubs lately so really got to pay attention to the new stuff sure, Wilderness, brag about your 30 seconds of hard work thank you

I was wondering if what do we mean by hub group in the account section. When I look at it all my hubs are in orphan group. What do you mean by that? Any answer? And what is good in creating group?

I have repeatedly assigned my hubs to groups such as Poetry, Short Stories and As I See It (for essays and articles). However, on my profile page my hubs are randomly listed under the the two Headings "Poetry"...
