Where do you find short URLs of hubs?

    When you first make a hub, it gives you a long and short URL. If you forget to write the short one down, is there a way to find it later?

    Yes you can go to top navbar> myaccount > see the list of hubs, right click on the link and copy-link-location.

      I tried this and it doesn't work for me, it gives me the full link?  I went under source but could not locate it there either.

      Help, please.

      Doesn't work for me either. I was going to Tweet about a hub, but it is really long. Any other ideas?

        I've heard this "short version" asked about before, but don't know if it exists.  For the future, make sure you edit the URL when you create the Hub and make it as short as you can.

          No, that is not right. When you first publish a hub, they tell you a long version and a short version URL. They also ask if you want to Tweet or add to Facebook. But then that all goes away.

            Go to the bottom of your hub, click "Share It" and select "TweetThis"

              Thanks Maddie. This is what I was looking for.

              Well, I must be doing something wrong. When I go to the bottom of my hubs, there is only:   
                  * about us
                  * blog
                  * guide
                  * affiliates
                  * advertise
                  * email this page
                  * link to this page
                  * copyright
              I don't see "Share it".

    Greetings!
    My rule of thumb is never trust important information outside of your own home.  When I get to that screen where it shows me the long and short URL I immediately highlight my desired URL and copy and paste it into my basic Text file where I keep a copy of all titles and URLs of mine.  Same thing with all online usernames and passwords.  I have this file as a shortcut icon on my Desktop for easy access when I am on a blog or something where I want to link to my page.  It is also very important to keep a backup copy on a flash drive in case of system crash.

      Thanks Goldenpath. I have done this off and on, but I will work to do it better.

    Sorry, not THAT far down.  Not at the bottom of the page, just at the bottom of the Hub content, where the thumbs up and thumbs down buttons are.  Usually just above your comment box.

      LOL. It was right there. And I guess I had seen it many times and not really though about it. Thanks for the help! I wanted to Tweet my hubs about the space shuttle before Sunday's launch.
