My new hub doesn't show up on "Latest Hub"

    I just published a hub called "Game Raises Questions," where is it? It's not in "latest hubs" at all although it shows up as published on my statistics.

    Now I see it doesn't show up on my hubtivity either!

    Did you double check that it really published?  I don't see it on your profile page under latest hubs either.

    Thanks for replying Stacie. It shows up as published everywhere else except latest hubs, either on my profile page or on the Hubs category near the top of the page. Can I "unpublish" it, and then "publish" it again? No one will see it if the "latest" hub doesn't show it.

    You might try the unpublish and republish thing.

    Post the link here, so I can see if I can see it.

    Here's the URL for the hub:  http://hubpages.com/hub/Game-Raises-Questions

    It appears that the hub has somehow gotten a few hits. I don't know how. But, I'll wait about 10 or 15 minutes before trying to unpublish and re-publishing it.

    Thanks for your help Stacie.

    William, did you publish it 3 weeks ago, maybe accidentally, and then unpublish it?

    It shows up as published 3 weeks ago here: http://hubpages.com/author/William+F.+Torpey/latest/

    When I was working on changes to my hubs about that time I did hit the publish button on one of them accidentally and immediately hit the unpublish button -- I don't remember which one it was, but that could be the answer. If that's the case, does that mean I never get to have this hub listed as my latest hub? Not even on my Profile Page? If that's the case it will never get read by anyone.

    Good detective work, Stacie. Thanks, again.

    That is exactly what it means.  It will always show that original publish date, even though it was accidental.

    I guess I'll just have to live with having the least read hub on Hubpages. If the brass at HubPages reads these messages, they might want to consider place the "Publish" button about three miles away from the "Done Editing" button!

    Thanks a million for all your help, Stacie.

    Noted, William.  I reset the first published date on that hub for you, so it now appears at the top of your latest list.   I didn't update hubtivity though.  Doing that is a bit more complicated, unfortunately.

    Oh, good news for you there William!

    Thank you very much, Paul. You've gone well beyond the call of duty on this one! Maybe that's why HubPages is Number One -- and why you attract such good people as Stacie.
