    This sucks, I wrote a great hub, but I accidentally made it a video hub... I want it to be an article. How can I fix this?

      Delete it and try again.

    There is no way to convert a video hub back to a standard hub.

    But there is a solution.
    1. Unpublish the video hub (if it is published.)
    2. Create a new article hub with the title you want. As you do, change the Permalink (URL) slightly, perhaps adding  "2" at the end. (Don't worry, the permalink has no effect on your rankings, ratings, or SEO.)
    3. Copy the text and image capsules from the video hub to the (unpublished) article hub one at a time.(You can open up text capsules to copy and reload images from your HubPages image library.)
    4. Delete the video hub.
    5. Wait 24 hours to make sure the video hub is completely gone and there will be no appearance of duplicate content.
    6. Publish your article hub.

    Let us know how it goes!

    Sorry for the inconvenience, bonnebartron! SidKemp's recommendation is probably your best bet. ^_^;;
