Video Hubs cannot be converted to non-video Hub

    I created a new Hub not yet published, but don't like the format.

    The four choices are:
    * Article
    * Video
    * Recipe
    * Copy Template

    I chose Video, but I don't want this. Now, after selecting this format, I cannot find out how to change it, despite the promise on the "Create a Hub" page that "Hub Format (Don't worry, you can change your mind later.)"

    I've looked over the help forum and find people have asked this before, but no one has provided an answer! One was 8 months ago and one was 4 months ago. Many people misunderstood the question and gave answers that had nothing to do with the problem.

    If Hub Pages has a method for changing the "format" once one of the 4 options has been selected, then they should make it obvious how to perform this change. If they overlooked adding this programming, then they should remove the "promise" that we will be able to change it.

    Does anyone have any idea how to change the format?

    I was curious what the Video Format looked like, but this format has a Video capsule that does not have a "red X" on it for deletion. The difference here is that "Video Format" has a "hubpages video" capsule, which is different than the "video" capsule.

      Yikes!! I'm so sorry about that misleading messaging. I'll have us fix that issue right away. So sorry for the inconvenience!

      As the format cannot be changed, I recommend deleting that Video and starting a fresh Hub.

    My understanding is that once you select a Video format, you can't change it back.  You can switch out the video you want to use though.
