What is a Grouping Feature? How to use it, while writing a hub? Please explain.
Groups are used to tie all of your hubs on a particular topic together. With a quick glance at your profile, I thought of at least three groups - writing, literature, and relationships.
Under the "hub" tab in your account, click on "groups". Once there, click on "add new group". Create a name for your group. Repeat that step to create as many groups as you need for your various topics. Once you've created the groups, scroll down the screen until you find the titles of your hubs. Now simply click and drag the title to place it under the appropriate group.
The next time you view one of your published hubs, you'll see a "previous" and "next" button under the hub. If the person has just read one of your hubs about relationships, they can click either of those buttons to navigate through all of your hubs about relationships without having to go back to your profile and search the main hub list.
I'm not sure if there's a limit on how many groups you can have, but I have eight or ten.
Thanks sheilamyers for such a detailed answer. I have also observed that when I add links to my hubs in a hub, I receive a pop up message that I have too many links, which is against the style of HuPages. It says use Group Feature to add links your hubs. Can you explain how to use this feature adding links to my hubs?
When you make the groups, the "previous" and "next" buttons are the links to two of your hubs. HP prefers that method instead of listing a bunch of links to your hubs within the body of a hub.
Thanks sheilamyers for the answer. Now I have come to know how to use Grouping Feature.

It would be great to have more options for displaying our hubs on the profile page. The chronological view means that hubs that are related (and may therefore appeal to the same reader) may be quite far apart, and older hubs are less likely to be seen in any case. Also, if we've written several...

I'm trying to use the Style Box to fix my hubs. Please tell me where the "Grouping Feature" is and how to use it. I've been listing my related hubs in a text box which I learned is incorrect. I tried it with the link box but all of them wouldn't come up. Thank you.

I was tweaking my groups, and adding my "orphan hubs" into their proper groups, and decided I neede a new group. I created said group, but was unable to move the article into it. It "stuck" at the group just above at the bottom of the list,...

I established Groups and moved my existing (completed) hubs into appropriate groups. I understand that some of my hubs will show at the bottom of the screen for a hub from the same group. However, I believe that categorizing hubs into groups with the same or similar theme/overall topic ON THE...

Hi everyone! Today we released an update to the Hub Groups interface in My Account. The new interface closely matches the About the Author UI and should be familiar to many of you. Please note that we did not make any functional changes to Hub Groups (such as integrating it with About the Author)...
