I am trying to start a new hub, I keep getting this message...
"Please fix these errors before continuing:
Please do not include spaces in the web address for your Hub."
??????? I dont want a one word title?
What am I doing wrong? this has never happend before.
Also, Im not typing in the "give your hub a unique web adress" part, I am typing in the "choose a title for your hub" part.
try putting in fullstops between each word e.g. like my.own.world
let me know if that worked!
Typing, samwe as always.
first thing..choose a title, I chose one, it said..this title is taken..I chose a new one..it says..do not put spaces in the address?
first.."lost"..that was already taken
then "Lost", also taken
then "lost and found" you guessed it...
then "found and lost"..and it said to not put spaces...
Justine just put up space in your web address.And by default hubpages set your hub title as your web address but it can be different if you manually type it in the address bar.
You can also try inserting the dashes into the title, like it should be doing automatically, or delete all spaces in the address, so it is one run-on word.
I just didnt want a run on word for my title, and this never happend before. Ive made like...27 hubs, and some of them have more then one word in the title...
Oh well, thanks guys, I guess its not big deal to choose a new title with one word.

So putting space in your title puts a dash in your web address and if you want you can have a diff web address if you manually type it.And In the web address you can only make use of dash.
Make sure your cursor is in the very first space when you type in your title. Backspace to the very beginning. See if that works.
ok. I have not tried that one yet...good idea
I tried the backspace I THINK it worked..but then it all froze up...totally my computer....
Im pretty sure it was simply the backsapacing thing..as when I went back to fix it, there was a sapce at the begining!!
Ill let you know later, now its lucnh time and I have other work to do. I think that wa sit tho...thanks guys!!!
ok. I see, Basically, it's just the words, nothing to do with spacing or anything. Your title is used too often.
I just tried: lost forever
as a title, and that is not taken. u could use that, or come up with something else. And type with space, it doesn't matter, as long as it's unique.
I dont understand why I keep getting the message to NOT PUT SPACES then?
And NOOOO I am NOT typing in the adress box? I really DO know the difference...
Its probaly just my stupid computer having a communication breakdown with cyber space...
I bet if I just leave it be and come back it will fix itself...
When I create titles, I keep in mind the URL is what matters most. What I mean by that is that the URL is more important that the title itself.
The title can be changed afterwards to whatever you choose, but the URL is locked into whatever it is associated to the content of the Hub.
My example: Mystery Revealed In Light of Reason?
That is the words that are in the URL of one Hub, yet the title is different, because I changed it AFTER I establish the Hub's URL.
The title of the Hub now is - Life's Questions Need Answers?
However, when I established the Hub itself, many of the words I wanted to use were taken. It was necessary to bring to life alternate words, but based on a similar meaning.
Such as, "Lost" could be "Missing", Or "Not Found" or even something else. It's only important when creating the URL, because the title can be changed afterwards.
Hope that helped.

I just published a new article called "Interesting Guns in Gaming". Unfortunately, the web address for this article used the original name of the article "Top Three Guns in Gaming". Do I have to do something before publishing?

I was wondering about the "Give your Hub a unique web address" section in Start a new hub. It fills in with my topic title. What am I suppose to do from there? Do I need to add something?Thanks,Shell
