I started writing a hub that didn't turn out like I wanted. I had saved it, without ever publishing it. When I started a new hub, I decided to just delete the info in that original hub and replace it with the new content.
The one thing that didn't occur to me was the URL! After publishing the new hub, I noticed it still had the old URL, so I went into editing mode, but couldn't find anyplace to change the URL. Is it possible to edit a hub's URL?!
Changing the URL of a published hub is not possible, the only alternative way is:
Create new hub with your desired url, transfer the contents and delete the old one.
The URL is what the search engines use to keep track of a page. So if you change it, it's the same as deleting an old page and creating a new one.
Which is exactly what you have to do on Hubpages to change it.
Thanks, that's kind of what I figured. I deleted the old hub and created a new one with a proper URL. Live and learn, I guess!
