I published my first hub yesterday, unfortunately I realized that I had made an error, instead of 50 in the title, it should have been 40. How do I revise a hub title and text that has already been published or can I?
I've looked around for an answer to my question and haven't found it. Thanks! :-)
You can go to "my account" and click on "edit" next the to hub title. You can change the title and edit the hub by editing the heading and each text capsule.
You cannot change the URL of the hub though. You would have to scratch the entire hub if you want to change the URL.
I just checked on your hub and your URL says 50? I hope you realize that your URL will draw people searching for the age 50 with regards to your topic, but will be disappointed when they reach your hub because your title isn't the only thing that search engines look for?
I'd recommend creating a second hub for the age 40? And, change the hub that's already created to talk about it in the proper age bracket the URL states.
When I first started writing for HubPages, I had the same problem. I decided to change the title of my Hub, and the URL was completely different of course. They very plainly advise that the URL cannot be changed. So, I unpublished that one, and started all over again and got the correct URL. If you have saved your Hub in your word processor, it won't be hard to do this at all.
How do I revise a hub title and text that has already been published or can I?
YES - you sure can! It is right beside the topic of your hub. Click on that and you can edit it - you can also put in your OWN title text instead of having the computer generate its own for you.

I just want to make sure I am clear on the transition information. My stuff transferred overnight, so that means that I have 4 months to clear up skulls etc before the hubs get moderated, correct?I am going to have to...

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

I noticed that there is a writer on this site who does NONE of the things we have been told to do: No photos, videos, polls, ads or even capsules. He IS an excellent writer, no question, but I am wondering...

Is there a way to write your hub first, then title it later? I find that after I've completed it, a title emerges. I know that when one 'tunes titles,' the original title or the URL remains the same. I would...

So, I didn't do very good research about the hub name, and so I did it after the fact, learning that there are actually a few other articles on the net with the same title I used for my latest hub. I think I should...
