Shortly after my lenses were transferred over to HubPages, I unpublished several hubs because I just didn't know when I'd get to them and I wanted them not visible to the public until i can get to them. A person just commented on one of them.
I do not want them visible. They are former lenses that need a lot of work and do not work as hubs.
How do I actually unpublish a hub and what does the "not published" red designation mean if it actually leaves the hub published?
This might hold a clue, Kylyssa.
Perhaps the "bug that re featured content that wasn't intended to be featured" caused your problem.
I was definitely affected by that bug a few days back. All of my "unfeatured for engagement" lenses were featured again for about a day.
Last night I published then unpublished the lens that got the comment just in case. I'm going to go do the same with all the others I have purposely unpublished just in case the bug made them all somewhat just a little less than actually unpublished.
If a hub is not published, people cannot see it. Are you sure you didn't accidentally publish it again? Does your stats page say it is not published?
WHOA! I just went to do some publishing and unpublishing and guess what? The hub somehow grew a doppelganger! The doppelganger got the comment!

Hi\I had 36 published lenses (not WIP) and after the transfer only 5 are published on HP. I was under the understanding that only WIP lenses would be unpublished automatically. I thought I had 4 months to get any issues sorted out before they'd be unpublished. I would like this...

http://blog.hubpages.com/2013/04/five-f … b-barrier/The new blog post that just went up today really caught my eye. The crux: "Until you have published five simultaneously-Featured Hubs, new Hubs that do not pass the Quality Assessment Process (QAP) will be unpublished rather...

Why is it that people have been commenting on my unpublished hubs?I thought others couldn't see them yet? When I start a hub, I sometimes choose the "save unpublished" option. But then, the other day, I noticed that someone commented on my unfinished hub, even though it said "This...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some of my hubs get unfeatured after I've edited them? One even got...
