    Is there a way on HubPages to find a series someone has done?

    For instance, I would like to read alancaster's VIKING series start to finish, but can only find one or two at a time in a search.  Also, I would like to refer some friends to WWI articles by UnnamedHarald, but don't see how to do that without referring them to the whole WWI category, which wasn't the point.

    Yes, but you will need to ask the hub authors for assistance. Have them add the same unique tag to each of the articles that you want linked, such as "alancasters Viking series". A few hours later those hubs will be associated with that tag, and you can create an rss feed in one of your hubs, or simply refer your friends to the tag URL. In the example I gave, the URL would be http://hubpages.com/tag/alancasters+Viking+series/hot (you can substitute out hot for "best" or "latest", it's your choice) and for the rss feed option, you just add ?rss to the end of the URL and place that link into an rss box on a hub. Example, http://hubpages.com/tag/hubbers+insurance/hot?rss (again replace hot with best or latest if you want, and you change out hubbers+insurance for alancasters+Viking+series (the link is one of the feeds I've made for myself, and it's hard to edit text in the middle of a URL from my iPad smile )

      That is some help.  What I'd really like to see is some way the Hub author can link a series to begin with, when they know that people will probably want to read some related articles in order.  Seems like that would be helpful to guests.

      they add the tag when they first create the hub (you have to have at least two anyways, just add another tag).

      Maybe I don't completely understand the question?

      No, you are right, that does answer the question I asked.  But can the same thing be done in general, so it is easy for any HubPage guest to find the whole series, without having to know this specific tag?

      go to the author's hubpage, under their profile there's a "search content by" box, search the term, then use the URL of the page you get
      Ex. http://hubpages.com/search/wwi?user=UnnamedHarald
      I'm trying to turn it into an rss, ill tell ya if it works
