    I have tried to write a new hub. Yet, as soon as I select the category, the the "working" popup appears, as if I hit Continue button. It just hangs there. Never had this issue using Chrome.  Have tried it many times.

      Sorry to hear you are having problems publishing a Hub.

      Many times the issue you are experiencing is related to network connectivity.

      Does the issue persist if you clear your browser cache, restart your computer, and restart any network hardware?

      Does the issue persist with another browser?

      Here are some other browser trouble shooting steps to try. … r-problems

      I had this problem several weeks ago using Firefox.  After all obvious dumping of histories, cookies, disk scans and so on, it still didn't work.  I got disgusted and went to bed.  The next morning it was fine.  No problems since.  I think it's just a glitch or something.  I hope it works out for you.

    I have this problem.  For the "start a hub", when I clicked "continue" this message appeared:
    "Please use only letters, numbers, underscores and dashes in the web address for your Hub."

    I have checked the url many times and even re-edited, but to no avail.  I simply could not proceed.

    Can anyone help?

      Hit the link for the simplified version.  After it takes your title, back out and go to your stats.  Access and edit from there.  I hope that helps.  It's worked for me before.

        Sorry poetvix, I don't understand "Hit the link for the simplified version." 
        However, I tried again and it works this time.
        For my learning info, can you please explain the above statement?
        Thanks poetvix.

          On the screen where you first go to enter the title, there's a little blue link, top left, that will take you to a simplified version.
          I hope that helps.

            Thanks poetvix. I learn something new today!  By the way the blue link is on the top right on my screen.
