    Hi, Okay, I may be missing something here, but I just wrote a hub and decided that the title was wrong, so i went to change it and now it seems to have disappeared from the top of the page? The bit where you can change your title, and placement. I know it is now at the side under your photo, but it doesn't say where I can change the title. Do i have to start again? thanks

      I changed the title on one of my hubs, but      it did not change the original URL.    I do not know what that might mean to the search engines.

        URL's never change,if you foul up just delete the hub and start over. To the search engines if you are targeting a keyword and it's not in the URL and title the same exact way you want to target it then you will not be optimized for that keyword properly and you will be hard pressed to ever rank well for it.

        Sorry, onegoodwoman. You cannot change the url. If you really need a different url, you will have to create a new Hub.

    While in edit mode just click the title, very easy.

        Aww, please don't feel dumb! Lots of people have been confused by this, so soon there will be an update that will hopefully make it more obvious how to change your Hub's title. I'm glad you've figured it out though.

    "Moved all the configuration tools except the title into the sidebar (you can edit your title by simply clicking on it)"
