Once you add images to your hub, the first image automatically becomes the icon. If no images, your avatar image will automatically become the icon - once you have uploaded an avatar image to your profile page, that is.
You upload a profile picture. It will show up as your hub thumbnail as default. If you use pictures in your hubs it will be the thumbnail for your hub. Don't forget to browse through the learning center first, Welcome to HP Best Regards
I read what you wrote and do not believe your assumption to be accurate. So I was responding to the "Even if that weren't the case" part of your post. In any event, thanks for trying to set things straight.
Do you ever read the forums? I don't. I am sorry, that you felt that way. I dont feel the necessity to explain it to you. And I certainly do not feel like picking up a fight with anyone. You are the BEST.
When I first came here I came because of a hub that I was directed to from google. Its was creative handmade pillows. I became a hubber that afternoon. I would like to hear what your first hub that you ever read was....
