    Last time I checked, a summary isn't a requirement, but will be beneficial if an author did write one.

    Also, last time I checked, not writing a summary isn't going to get an article banned nor will the author get banned.

        Edit the hub itself. While in edit mode, look to the right hand side and you will see some red letters, which are commands. One will be "summary". If you click on it, a white box will appear and you can write your summary. smile

    When your Hub has a summary it is most likely clicked on in search results, than those Hubs that don't have a summary. Try typing a few of your Hub URLs into search engines to see if it would need a summary.

      Untrue, for the simple fact that if you don't write a summary, then Google and other search engines take a portion of the Hub's content to create one.

        This is true - the problem I find is that sometimes this could be an Amazon Ad!

          That's why it is better to be safe than sorry, and write one up yourself. wink big_smile

    Go to your hub
    Look at the buttons at the top, above your title - they are Edit, Stats, Delete...
    If you click the "Delete" button, a pop-up will appear asking you to confirm - click OK
    A red box appears above your hub, explaining that your hub will be deleted after 24 hours of inactivity (not being edited).
    You will then see three blue button at the top of your page - Preview, Undelete, Done Editing.
    To delete, click Done Editing.
    Go to your "my accounts " page. The deleted hub will then appear with a line through it. Leave it alone for the required 24 hours and it will be permanently deleted after the time has elapsed.

    Hope this helps
    Here is a link to the learning center. There is a link at the bottom of almost every page as well. You will find many answers there:the learning center
