I just published a new hub about the newborn lambs and I noticed that the url only shows 'Lambing Season' and not 'Lambing Season 2016'. I didn't change that. All my Lambing Season hubs have a year at the end of their url, so why not this one???
I just started a new hub to find out and indeed, if I enter the Title 'Lambing Season 2016, or 2017 the numbers disappear in the url and all that's left is lambing-season.
So what's the point in not showing the year in the url I wonder.
This is very strange, especially because your previous "lambing season" hubs (2011 - 2015) do have the year in their URLs. I think I'd drop the team an email if I were you. Or perhaps you could use Roman numerals for the URL.
I love the 2016 hub, by the way. How's my Lance doing?
While you can use a Hub title that is already in use on HubPages, you can not use a URL that has already been taken. If you are not able to input the year at the end, it sounds like someone may have already claimed this URL to write his/her own Hub.
It's best NOT to put the year in the URL. In 2017, it won't be relevant. It's best to write evergreen content that will be as relevant in five years as it is today.
Well, this was a series of my yearly newborn lambs, which I started 5 years ago. Of course they're year bound. I will take them all down and put them elsewhere.

I spent several hours yesterday trying to figure out the system to set up a unique tracker (thank you Darkside for many helpful tips, BTW). I finally set up a new URL tracker, which was approved, but when I tried to use it, it didn't work. Any ideas?I did underscore first, then my...

What is the maximum number of characters which can be placed in a URL in a link capsule? I am adding a link to a Street View Panaroma and my link becomes truncated every time I save the capsule and finish editing.
