    I like to keep my hubs organized and love the ability to keep hubs grouped together.  I have a few hubs that fit multiple groups.  For example, I did a product review on diapers.  It is currently under my group "Product Reviews" however it also fits under my group of "Baby Issues".  As it is now, anyone who is interested in my Baby Issue hubs would miss out on the diaper review (and vice versa).

    I would really like the ability to list my hubs in more than one group.  Is this possible?

      Already asked a couple of times before and it's not going to happen I guess.

        :-(  Well, it never hurts to keep asking in case they're waiting to see if it's a popular request ..

      I've often thought this would be a nice idea - but the thing to remember is (as Wry says) most readers aren't even aware of groups.  The "related Hubs" section is far more prominent than the little arrow directing the reader to the next Hub in the group.

      If you want your readers to read Hubs as part of a "set", you need to prominently interlink your Hubs manually.

    Too bad if it's never gonna happen. It's a great idea!

    What you could do to get a wider audience is place in the category closest to the other group you wanted and place a link in the hubs in the second group. That way people reading hubs from the "Babies" group will see the link.

    Groups do little more than let writers organise their hubs. Few people seem to use the small and hardly noticeable link at the bottom to navigate.

    Just interlink your hubs. You'll get more traffic.

      Sooooo .... should we first be requesting BIGGER group navigation links to get more activity on them and THEN ask for the ability to assign multiple groups ..?  :-D

        Well based on the fact we already have the link suggestion tool and related hubs, I doubt HP will consider adding MORE spammy interface to the hub screen.
