    How can I change the URL of my hub since it is different from the title. So when I share the link the title of my hub is: "The Fish, Rainbows, Happiness and Dorothy", the right title is :
    "Rainbows, Happiness, Dorothy and the Fish". Please help! I tried editing the hub but there is no place to edit the URL. Thanks! smile

      You cannot change the URL at any time. You can create a new URL and start over or you can edit the title but once you have a URL it is locked and can only be deleted if you choose to.

        Thank you my friend. So that means I can't change the URL anymore. Well, it's alright though! Thanks for helping! It means a lot! smile

    I've had the same problem and once, on a newly written hub, I recreated it with the URL I wanted, moved everything over and deleted the original.

    After that, I started writing everything in Word then deciding on the title after I could see what ended up being the focus of the hub.

    I’m reasonably sure that the URL not matching the Title is no big thing. People alter their titles all the time, especially recently. smile

      Thanks paradigmsearch, that's true and after a days of sharing it on FB, I've noticed that the right title is the one that appears upon adding it as a link. Thanks! See you around! smile
