    How to change the URL of a Hub?

    I have a hub that was going to have a different article and then I changed my mind and wrote a different hub. The url now has the name of the old hub instead of the new one. Anyone know how to change the Url of a hub? Thanks in advance to your helpful answers.

    It is not possible to change the URL for a hub. You would have to delete the hub and move the contents over to a new hub with a different URL. In that case, be careful about duplicate content as long as the old hub is still available in the search engines.

    Agree with Website Examiner. Easiest to create a new hub with the desired URL and delete the old one.

    I had this problem a few weeks ago, too!  Follow the other two answers given here.  In addition, be sure to delete all of the content from the hub you're deleting, and make sure the hub's title shows up as deleted in your My Account page.  That way the admin mods will be able to get rid of it as soon as possible, and it eliminates the danger of being charged with duplicate content.

      I have this same problem.  I was originally going to write a hub with a different title on a totally different subject, but then I decided to write a different article. Now my URL does not match up with my current hub that I just got done writing.

    I agree as well, delete and redo.  If you just wanted to change the title thats easy but the URL.. nope.
