how do I change the name of am article during editing
I have decided to rewrite an article and I dont know how to change the title. I have tried highliting and deleting the title but nothing happens. I am in the edit mode.
You can change the name of the article, but not the URL.
The URL is fixed once the layout and tags have been chosen. The only way you can change all of it is by creating a new hub with the new name and copying the text and pictures across. You can then delete the old hub.
It's a mess way of doing things, but I don't know of another way.
Hope this helps

I had heard pipes - this thing - | - are bad in a title. So much so that when editing an old hub, I could not save it unless I removed the pipe from the original title. Noticing that an old title on my blog had a pipe it it, but it was still getting good viewership, I did a little experiment with...

If you go back and update an article that is not getting many views, do you change the title? If so, does this change the URL, and basically make it a new article in the eyes of search engines?

I just published a new article called "Interesting Guns in Gaming". Unfortunately, the web address for this article used the original name of the article "Top Three Guns in Gaming". Do I have to do something before publishing?
