Hello, I made an error without realising on the hub I just completed. When I was planning a number of hubs that I wanted to work on, I set them up in my account. I changed my mind about one of them, and instead of deleting it, just renamed it to what I wanted my new title to be.
I just published it, and noticed that the extension in the URL still has the old title, which doesn't apply to the new title or content. Is there a way for me to change this, or will the admins / reviewers pick up on this and fix it?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
I did the same thing on a few of my hubs. There is not a way to change the URL after publishing without redoing the entire hub from scratch.
As far as I am aware, you cannot change a URL once it's been established. You would have to start unpublish it and copy it over to an entirely new article. Sorry
sorry, that should say "you would have to unpublish it"
as a side note, some of my earlier articles have conflicting titles and url's (as I found myself in the same boat as you). I decided to leave them be, rather than unpublish and publish again. They seem to do just fine in regards to traffic.

Okay...so how about it that I delete the hub and create another one with the same content albeit a different heading? I wonder if this would bring about a change in url...
No it cannot be done. You would have to publish the article again

What is the reasoning behind not being able to change the URL even before one publishes a hub?I know a title can be changed, and I understand about the URL and google, etc., but if a hub has not been published, then why it is one cannot change the URL if during the process of writing the hub, one...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...
