    I've been away for awhile, am trying to set up a new hub, but have tried numerous times, to set up the hub with title etc.. it doesn't seem to be working, maybe things have changed, since I was last here...
    What are the guidelines now?

      I am not sure what problem you may be encountering or what changes you are seeing.

      Overall, I just type in my title and then it will create a URL for the words I type in.

      Perhaps if you could me more specific maybe we could narrow down what the problem may be.

      I am sure you know of the below link, but I thought I would throw it in just in case. smile

      I have this problem once in awhile and the way I resolve it is to read my article carefully and think about what it is I'm really trying to say.  Sometimes the removal of just one sentence or paragraph focuses the article and lets me know exactly how I should title it.

      Look for my hub on the Title/URL problem, that might help. Basically, put in something besides the actual title you want into the title field, like the date and a couple of keywords. That's very unlikely to be a duplicate of anything else on HP. Then you can always change the title later (the original URL will not change though).

    I haven't run into this problem before, so I don't know if any error messages are displayed. However, I've seen posts in the forum where people can't enter a title because it's already been used. I know you'd have a different URL than another hubber would have, but you might try changing your title slightly to see if that works. Or you could search on your title in HP to see if it's already there.

    Another problem might be that your topic is already saturated in HP. Again, I don't know if you'd get any error messages if that was the problem.
