In "Manage Groups," I have several (all?) of my hubs listed. I categorized them before writing them, so I don't understand why they're categorized as "orphan."
My question is, how do I get my poor hubs out of orphan status?
Go to the page where you see your groups or orphans. You can move (drag and drop,) your orphans into an established group or create a new group for it. There's a button for creating a new group.
Just assign the "orphan hubs" to a group.
A group is like your private grouping of articles. if you have a series of articles on a particular topic, you can group them together instead of mixing it with your other articles of the same category, for example.
For example, let's say you write a lot about pets.
You have articles on calico cats, persian cats, and blue cats
If you write a new one about hairless cats, you may want to group them with your other cat articles. if you write SEVERAL articles on hairless cats, you can create a new group on just the hairless cats.
Furthermore, categories and groups operate independently of each other for organizing your hubs. A hub about Ferraris, e.g., could be categorized in automobiles and grouped with Italian things, or vice versa.
By the term 'orphan' it means you have not grouped them. And that does not affect the status of your hub otherwise, nor is the description visible to others.

I have a suggestion I feel would be very useful for many of us, as well as helping readers find certain of our hubs.Since we have recently been assigned "subdomains," this would be a similar but (I think)...

Alright, I have ... well, quite a few I thought when they were written, and use the category and sub-category thingy that Hubs were then 'grouped'. So how did these 'orphans' end up as such?
