    I have repeatedly assigned my hubs to groups such as Poetry, Short Stories and As I See It (for essays and articles). However, on my profile page my hubs are randomly listed under the the two Headings "Poetry" and "Entertainment and Media" or some such.
    When I "Save" my changes on my Group Page everything looks like it worked, but when I go to my Profile Page nothing has changed.
    Why?

    I think that the profile page assignment has more to do with the category you choose when you create the hub. The groups listing allows the links at the bottom of the hub directing to other hubs you have grouped together.

      Can you give one example hub that how groups are shown under each hubs?

        I put all of my Hubs into groups, as many other Hubbers probably do.  At the bottom of any of my Hubs just before the comment capsule, there are (usually) two blue links, each with an arrow pointing either left or right.  Sometimes there is only one link.

        The first part of the title (in the link) is the name that I gave to the entire group that the linked Hub is in.  The second part gives the title of the specific Hub. 

        That would be an example of how groups are shown, and you can find this on many Hubbers' Hubs.

        Does that help?

        Look at this hub, directly above the first comment. that is what grouping your hubs does. http://hubpages.com/hub/FireDamage

          Thanks for showing the example.

    That's right- they're two different types of categorization, so you're not doing anything wrong - your hubs belong to both your personal groups and the HubPages topics.

    I have two hubs that are what I consider essays. I put them in a group I named "As I See It". They are not in ANY "Assigned Group" on my profile page (which I assume is the same as any visitor would see).
    Also, two of the 10 or 12 poems I have published are arbitrarily listed under "Entertainment and Medi" which has NOTHING to do with their content or Group.
    I'd rather have NO Group listing than mislabeling and misdirection.
    Any solution would be welcome.
    Thanks in advance.

      Christopher, if you want more control over the way your Hubs show up on your profile page, your best bet is to change the category that they are in.  As Simone pointed out, your Groups and the Category (which determines the feed on your profile page) are totally separate.

      If you want to change the category, go into Edit Mode for that Hub.  In the box at the top, under the Settings tab, you can see the Category.  Click "Start Over" and change to a category that fits better.

      What you are seeing on your profile is the category you assign the hub to when you click on the start a new hub button. If you need to change this you can do that in the edit mode.
      At the very top where it says category there is a link that says start over. clicking on this will allow you to re-assign the category.

    Thanks everyone for your tutelage.
    I am going back to reassign categories to the hubs I need to switch.
    I'll return later to announce my results.

    It's been about an hour since I made the category changes and nothing has changed on my profile page. I shut my computer down and walked away, came back and...status quo.
    Maybe I am just too impatient...nothing new for me.
    I'll leave this to simmer a while before I declare defeat.
    Thanks again all. Your suggestions sure seemed like they should work.

    I don't know how to explain what I want to say, because I don't really understand it myself.  I think that the "old version" (with old categories) may still be in the memory or in cache or something like that.  It could take a couple of days to see the change.  Do be patient.  I believe it will happen.

    Three hours later and no change yet. It's not something critical, just irksome.
    I'll let you know if and when there is a change.
    Thanks again.

    Eureka! I just checked out my profile page, and although I would have preferred somewhat different categories for my hubs to be listed under, those headings that are there are a vast improvement.
    Thanks to those generous hubbers who gave me guidance.
