For learning questions open a thread in a forum:
Click on Forum at the top of the news feed page (main page).
Type in your question in the first box
Add additional info in the second box
Choose a Forum:
scroll down to HubPages Community then Getting Help for HubPages and click
Make sure there is a check mark in "follow this discussion"
Click on help in the black bar at the top right of any page
Note that FAQ (frequently asked questions) and the Learning Center are highlighted in blue in the top paragraph. Become very familiar with information in both those sections. Read it all and refer to it often.
Pay particular attention to "Beginners Start Here" on the Learning Center page.
Be patient, take your time, read, and open a forum thread when you do not understand something. There are many hubbers who like to help new members and they will come to your forum thread when you ask for help. Good luck to you.
