Changing my bio

    I changed my bio on one hub to accommodate that one hub, but now that bio appears on all of my hubs.  Is there a way to restore my original bio on all of the other hubs without having to do it one at a time?

      Hope that's what you are looking for.

        That did the trick, thanks, theraggededge!

    Hey Bob, If this were me I would go back to the latest hub, change the bio back to the way it was, and then hit "done editing". That is going to return all of the other articles to your old bio.
    Then open up your new article again, click on the bio category "new", and write a new bio. That new bio will not change your old bios on the other hubs.
    Someone else probably has a quicker way to do this, but the way I suggest will work.

    Thanks, Doc,  I changed the bio on the first article on my "Articles" page, but that didn't do the trick.  Maybe I have to change the most recent one.  I'll give that a try.

      That link that theraggededge added also includes a button to "Add bio". I have about half a dozen to choose from, depending on the subject of the article, so maybe you can go there and add some more. (I just looked at your coyote article on PetHelpful. It mentions being the father of GenXers, which is really not what your readers are interested in.)

        Yeah, that Gen-Xers bio is the one that caused the problem.  I had written a humorous account of the "horrendous" conditions Gen-Xers were raised under (in comparison to today's standards) and realized the pet bio wasn't appropriate.  So I changed it for that one hub, not realizing it would change all of the bios.  Now that I know how the whole thing works, I can avoid that in the future.  I'll bet your own children were raised under the same horrendous conditions mine were.

          I still wonder how I made it to this age since I grew up with exposed wires, kitchen cabinets with no child-safety-tabs, and a 300 pound TV that leaned over whenever you got up to change the channel.

            Yeah, we had to get up and change the channel, adjust the horizontal hold, the vertical hold, the brightness and the contrast.  We were the human remotes.  We Baby Boomers had it worse than the Gen-Xers!

        Congratulations, Doc, on being a Featured Author on the PetHelpful home page.  I just saw that when I logged out.  Either that's a new "attaboy" or I just didn't notice it before.  You're on a roll!

    By the way, you can get to that link via your stats page https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats

    It's under the 'About the author' tab.

      Thanks, again, theraggededge.  Now that I know this, I've fixed the problem and will be able to avoid it happening in the future.
