    Okay, I'm back after a prolonged absence ... Began a new hub and got the error msg shown as the subject above.  My url looks okay but apparently I missed an update or something while I was away. Anyone have an answer or direction.  I can follow directions as long as they are simple. Thanks.

    Did you type the title of your hub where it says 'Hub Title'?

    Thanks for the reply.  Yes, I put the title in the title slot, then picked a topic, then picked "Basic Article" and clicked "continue".  It was not accepted.

    I note that when I put the title in, the "edit" next to the (perma) url highlights for editing.  But I don't know what it wants.

      That happens to me if I choose a URL that's already taken, which means I have to use a different title--the title is the same as the URL.

      Did you type the title or copy and paste from a word doc? If you copy and past the title it won't auto-generate the URL. I suggest typing the title in the title slot so the URL will be created automatically.

    Thanks to both of you, Jayne and Cardisa, for your help.  With it, I believe I found the answer.  Months back when I first began writing this article, I had begun the process of constructing it, including naming it.  I never got to the finish product so I never published it, but... I did name it.  So it appears Hub picked up the "same name" duplication when I came back.  At any rate, I'd still be speaking in tongues to this system if not for you folks.  Thanks again.

    BTW, ladies ... please note the article is on "male leadership."  (he said, red-faced)

      Ah, so the URL was already taken, but by you in an earlier attempt. Glad you managed to sort it out.

      I'll be looking out for that hub. wink
