    How can I arrange a series of Hubs so they are read in sequential order?

    I have 12 hubs that are to be read in a certain order.  Currently they are in a grouping, but when I look up on my profile page, these articles are jumbled up in their order and difficult for a reader to locate next one to read.  How can resolve this issue?

    As things are right now with the listings on the profile page, we're stuck with hubs being listed in the order they were published with the most current being on the top. Perhaps it would help people find the correct order if you added something to the title to reference the series and part number. I noticed your journal entries are dated. If you have a series of other hubs you want read in a particular order you add "Part 1", "Part 2", etc or something similar to the title.

      I do have them numbered in the title as well as date.....but does not seem to matter.  They are all grouped together, but a reader has to know they can look up in that group.   Hmmm....

    Maybe just put a link to the next one at the bottom of the page?

      That is a thought!  I will explore that one.  Once we were able to have stories related at the bottom...but that is gone now.  Must of been one of the changes I missed.

      If you put them all in to the same group, two will show at the bottom, but maybe not in order.

      I would just put a link at the bottom of the Hub 'click here for part two', and, if they have landed on No. 3 ' click here for the first page'

    I had a similar issue when I tried to write a series about writing a fantasy novel. My solution was to include a 'table of contents' at the top of each hub. It was a series of links to the other parts with the one they were currently on, unlinked. This way they knew exactly where they were and where the series started. I'll post a link to the hub below so you can see what I'm talking about. But be aware that Hubpages doesn't like it when you number articles. So, if you said "Pottery Part 1" it would hurt your rankings, where as "Pottery, an introduction" would get better results.
