I'm trying to make my first hub, but it keeps telling me 'Please use only letters, numbers, underscores, and dashes in the web address for your hub'
What am I doing wrong?
Don't type in the http://hubpages.com/hub/
You just need to add the second part of the url which is normally the same as your hub title e.g.
A title of "How to Write a Hub" automatically turns into how-to-write-a-hub and is added to the first part of the url.
I hope that makes sense!
if you are trying to write your website address its not going to work, i think you made another post on it. check that
Welcome to HubPages!
You cannot enter URLs directly into the title of a hub.
The "title" becomes your URL for your hub that you are about to write. You can put your URL inside the hub somewhere else, but not the title.
