How can I fix the spelling on a URL?
I tried asking this before, it seems to have disappeared (Twice). I have a word misspelled on my latest article's URL (It should be 'dormitory," not 'dormatory' ... yikes, how did I do that!) How can I fix that? I seem to be able to edit everything but not that. Deleting and reloading my entire piece is not an option. Please help! BTW, this form requires me to pick a topic but the ones here are not applicable. Thanks, Teri
You cannot do anything about that unfortunately. URLs cannot be edited. Only way to fix it is to start a new hub and copy the content into this new hub and delete the hub with the misspelled word.
I can't even start a new hub because it says the title is already in use ... the one I have. That means,. even though I've put it on a PDF, I have to delete the whole thing so it may or may not work because I can still get the same No, you can't use that title message. . Not including the writing time for this piece, which was hours in itself over a period of time, the editing and laying in process took me 6 hours today .... 6 hours of absolutely wasted time because of one letter I cannot change. How ridiculous is that!!!!!!!!! You can tell., I am very, very upset right now.
Well, what if you try adding an extra word to the title, that is relevant to the content of course...Maybe that will work.
I ended up doing a do-over, which, luckily took less than the 6 hours it took before. Still, I am upset about it because.... this is something I think should be fixable, either by the author or by a HP boss. Ah, well ...
No matter what site you publish posts on you can't change the URL once you publish the post...so it's not just a HubPages thing.

I heard that urls are permanent. To my chagrin, I just noticed a misspelled word in one of my hub urls as I was surfing stats in GA. How bad is this? Well, what makes it worse is that it's my hub about Women's Public Restrooms. Unfortunately, in the url, instead of "public" it says...

I just published a hub and while I was writing it I noticed I misspelled a word at the very beginning and now a word in the url is misspelled. I changed the spelling in the title thinking that would also change the spelling in the url but it didn't. Is there anyway to fix this or do I just have to...

I'm sure you folks are too smart to do this, but I just did! I misspelled the word "depression" in my latest Hub! Taught me a good lession: go slower. Now it's there and there is nothing I can do about the URL. I did edit the title to correct.
