Is it possible to edit and change the url of a hub, once it is published?
No, it's not possible. To change the URL you would have to delete the article and start again. You shouldn't get too hung up on what the URL says, though. I deal with this URL/Title thing by using the initial title (and thus the URL) as a general label. Then, later, I can change the title and the URL is still in the ballpark. The title is much more important than the actual URL in any case.
This hub I wrote explains my approach to the URL/Title puzzle:

Yet I have not tried it, I think no need to delete the article in totality. Just create new hub by selecting a new permalink by editing and keep hub topic as same or even if you want to change it, go for it. Copy and paste the text into new hub and add all the capsules of your url you want to change. Before publishing just not forget to delete the existing hub.

So...if I wanted to change the URL of a published article...is that impossible? Or can mods/editors do that? Can I do it? I changed my keywords that I wanted to target as I wrote the article and would like to add those to the URL. Thoughts?
