I have one article which is an embarassment to me:
... coz I have misspelt "quickly" and didn't spot the mistake for 6 months.
Only discovered that last week (my eye sight is not so good).
Question is: Can a kind admin add in the "l" for me? Please!
I really don't feel like deleting it and starting over. -_-
Apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum/place.
Hi dense. If you find it embarrassing just start a new url correctly spelt and go to edit on your old hub, cut and paste the contents into the new one is the way to go!
When HubPages says that a URL can't be changed once it is created, they mean it.
Can't? Sure they could IF they wanted to change it. Anything in a database can be changed besides the unique ID which should never change.
But it is probably more trouble than it's worth. Digging around a database with hundreds of thousands of rows to change one character isn't much fun. Then again the right query makes it quite easy to find the correct row.
The proper word would be "Won't" as in "We won't change a URL.". "We can't change a URL" is a lie.
As long as the title of your article is fine, it wont really make a difference. Why transfer it to a new article when your current article will be aging away nicely and will have more traffic than creating a new article just for the sake of a misspelt URL. I suggest just sticking with the old one not many people really pay attention to the URL anyway, they concentrate on your article description more than anything.
Been there. Done that. Probably will be there again. It's the down side of drinking and hubbing. (sigh)
Like everyone else said: copy it over to a new one.

I heard that urls are permanent. To my chagrin, I just noticed a misspelled word in one of my hub urls as I was surfing stats in GA. How bad is this? Well, what makes it worse is that it's my hub about Women's Public...
