Link and Photo Upload Sabotage?

    Hello, I have two questions:

    1. I started a new hub and named it "Liberty Mountain" in error. It should have been named "Justice Mountain."  I completed the article in draft without publishing it. I changed the title to "Justice Mountain." Unfortunately, the link stayed "Liberty Mountain."

       a. Why did my link not change to "Justice Mountain"?
       b. Can HubPages change my link to "Justice Mountain"?

    2.  I chose numerous photos from Google Images to accentuate "Justice Mountain." They were jpg photos at Google. But as I tried to upload them at HubPages, they showed as gif and other types that HubPges cannot accept. Since my stalkers do not control HubPages technology, can you tell me what might have happened. It is as though someone else was choosing my photos instead of me.

    Thanks in advance. See "America's Most Censored: Mary Neal"

      Do you mean the URL?  Once you've created the URL when you start a Hub, it's set.  It can't be changed. You can change the title as often as you like, but not the URL.

      Using photos from Google Images is not legal.  All photos on the internet are copyright unless specifically noted otherwise: so when you find an image on Google Images, you must first go and check the original source to see whether it states that copying is allowed. If it does, then copy it from the original source,not from Google Images, and make sure you acknowledge the original owner with a link back to the source.

        Thank you. I will move my data from the "Justice Mountain" to "Justice Mountain by Mary Neal," which I created in case you are unable to change the link.

        I went to the original sources for photos. In any case, I do not know how that could change a jpg photo to a gif photo, do you? Thanks for your help.

          I checked for "Liberty Mountain" on the web and found the name is used for outdoor centers and some churches. It is OK with me if the link draws Christians, mountain climbers and other outdoor enthusiasts to my HubPages article. Therefore, I will go ahead and publish "Justice Mountain" using the "Liberty Mountain" link. It might work out for the good. Thanks again.

    If you save the photo to your computer then save it as a jpg then it should be alright to upload smile you can type in the photo source wink also, you can save your hub to your computer, delete the hub with the wrong title, and make a new hub with the correct title. Hope this helps smile Welcome to HubPages big_smile
