At the risk of everyone else in the room laughing their head off, I tried to start a Hub and was asked to indicate a unique web address. I don't understand what this means. Do I need my own web page or something before I can post a hub on Hubpages--perhaps I have misunderstood the whole concept. I thought I could just type or cut/paste from Word into the hub slot. Do I need to use the Windows Live Writer? Please advise after the laughter has stopped!
Did you type in a title of your hub in the first line? It will generate a unique web address for you.
The hippi is right. The first step will be to pick a title - that generates the unique web address.
After that, some hubbers write on word and then copy/paste while others write directly into HP capsules that you will be using.
You might take a look at the learning center (link at bottom of this page).
As I replied to "the hippi", I was on a seach and quest at the time, sort of testing the process since I am very new to this type of genre. I had been through several topics on the learning center, but I guess I missed something on this topic. However, despite your name tag, you have led me out of the tutorial wilderness. Thanks so much for your prompt reply.

I was wondering about the "Give your Hub a unique web address" section in Start a new hub. It fills in with my topic title. What am I suppose to do from there? Do I need to add something?Thanks,Shell

I just published a new article called "Interesting Guns in Gaming". Unfortunately, the web address for this article used the original name of the article "Top Three Guns in Gaming". Do I have to do something before publishing?
