Advanced Groups or 'Launch' hub

    I have quite a few hubs on the same subject and will eventually write up to a hundred or more in the same subject. What I would really like is to have a 'Launch' hub:
    -I could use my own domain name on this Launch Hub
    -It would have multi-level menus
    -I would be able to feature hubs on the front page and on each subsqeuent page and have a 'Read more' tag.
    -It would have a search facility.

    It's kind of like the Profile but more on a specific niche basis.

    I realize that I should really create my own website - but I really don't want to have to move dozens of hubs that are already pretty well established to another platform - I also believe I shouldn't create a website that simply links to my hubs as Google does not like that!!

    I also realize that Hubpages is designed to be a 'standalone article' site - but there are a lot of hubbers that whould probably benefit...

      I like this idea and completely understand the need you're talking about.  We have Hub Groups that allow you to group all of those Hubs together, but there's no good way to have a landing page for all of them.

      Just based on our current product roadmap a lot of our effort in the near term is going to be focused on supporting, fostering and highlighting quality content. So I don't think we will have a near-term solution for you, but I definitely like the idea and will make sure it stays on our list of potential good features. Thanks for submitting it.

      If anyone has thoughts on how we could accomplish this in a very simple way that is only a slight change from our existing product, do let me know. Sometimes if there's a simple solution it's more likely to get a higher priority.

        As a start - could you customize the software used for categories at the moment? Example - the learning center is organized in a similar manner - if I could have the ability to create a customized category page, that would get me close to what I am looking for!

        I also like this idea.  Even if you could group the hubs in categories like you did in the old profile page, that would give people visiting the profile page a way to access similar hubs easily.  That is the feature I miss the  most when visiting a profile page.

          Ooo, thanks. That's a good idea.
