    Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Fellow Hubbers!

    I am wondering how (if) I can change the URL of a Hub. During the rewrite process, I changed the title before publishing the completed article.

    Now I have a Hub with one title, and a URL containing the old, working title.

    Little help, please?

    Hi, Pip. I'm afraid you can't change the URL of an article. Many of the other features of the article can be changed during editing, but the URL has to stay the same. I don't think it matters unless the URL is very misleading.

      Thanks, AliciaC. The URL is still relevant to the Hub and the new title. Hopefully, it gets through smile

        As long as there is any relevance whatsoever to the content, you don't need to change the URL.  However, if there's a big difference, you may want to delete the entire hub and post it again with a different URL.  Normally you wouldn't have to do this.

          Thank you, TimeTraveller2. I should be ok. Next time I'll make sure I'm happy with a title before I save it!

    Pip - I've changed quite a few titles over time and never had any real impact so long as, like TT2 and Alicia said, it's still related. I have wished on a couple of occasions that HP would allow the title to be last or at least changeable till published. I presume there is a reason beyond my knowledge that that isn't possible but sometimes I feel an article leads to a title better than the reverse. I used to write songs and often the title wasn't clear till the end...perhaps it's just a hang up on old habits for me. Anyhow, you'll be alright and now I sometimes rough draft articles offline before choosing a title to lower this risk for myself.
