When the title of a hub is edited, can its original URL be changed to match?
I changed the title of an older hub to more accurately portray the contents, yet the URL is still the same original one that does not give a clue to what the hub's really about. If there is a tutorial about this (which I haven't found), will someone please direct me to it? If not, and you know how to accomplish this change, please tell me (simply, since I am technically challenged). Thanks!
Unless I'm mistaken, and that is always a possibility, the answer is no. I look forward to other answer, though, so don't take my word to the bank.
No. If you want to change it, save your Hub (on something like Word) delete the old one. After the old one is definitely deleted, be sure on your new URL and transfer from Word to start a new Hub.
I was afraid it would require deleting and republishing the hub entirely (which I don't think should be necessary). It's too much trouble to do, at least at the present time. Thanks for your response.
HubPages Team...can't you change this?
Another way is to transfer the Hub to another "start a new Hub" but do not publish it until the old one is definitely deleted.
By the way, I use the copy/paste to move it.
Hi Jaye, Bill is right in that it cannot be changed, and this answer does not help at all for your current question, but when I am naming each new hub I use something very generic, like "natural food pregnant dog" and then name the hub "How to use a natural diet to feed a pregnant or nursing dog". The URL does not need to be the same, and it does not hurt your page views if the URL is not the same as your title.
Anyway, since you might want to change the title to improve traffic, always pick a URL that reflects the general topic.
no, the URL remains the same. It will not change even though you had changed the title.,

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing...

Who here has accepted the offer to have a nearly successful hub edited by the team? What did you think of the finished product, would you do it again?
