Whenever I try to digg my hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/WWIII
I get this message:
"Please choose a valid type for your URL."
Can anybody help?
You can see what happened here http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/3219
Although we can probably work around it, I believe the bug is actually in Digg's implementation. For those that are interested,this is the link that we send you off to (which has the forward slashes properly encoded):
Digg's web server then does a 301 redirect to this URL:
It appears they are encoding the % symbol (which encoded is %25) with that redirect, but the percent symbol should just be left alone as it is actually part of the "%2F" token which is an encoded forward slash.
Could be their fault for sure You know, I'm not a big fan of bashing you, guys
Yeah, it's probably a bug. I had the same problem yesterday. I tried to go around it by clicking the tab "Submit New" at the top. Then it let me enter the URL. I entered my URL and it went though.
I hope this will help you all in some way.

There seems to be a bit of confusion as to the most effective URL naming protocol and to make matters a little more complicated, I strongly belief that the hub claiming system that is in place is making things a...
