Fixing a Typo? Answered

It was late and I was typing away then I woke up with little sleep and posted my instructable.  Well, I had forgotten I wanted to change the title before I published then I fixed it.  Then my oh so brilliant self had a typo in the title, a helpful user pointed it out and I fixed it.  The problem?

I don't mind that it has the original title so much as I mind the typo, LOL It's not a learing tool it's a learning tool.  Oi!  If anyone can help me out that would be great, if it can't be fixed, well I'm not going to get bent out of shape, it is what it is.

Thanks in advance!

Oh no! I have one of those too.

I've never known of a good way to fix it besides deleting and republishing, but that's a lot of work. I've always just edited the title and hoped no one would notice the link. ;)

I'm going to hope that's the case as well. I feel better knowing I'm not alone in typo land!

Don't worry about it since that is the url that gets generated when you create an ible and probably can't be changed. I've a couple ibles that I revised the title on and most of the time embedded links are cut and paste so no one looks closely at the full url. The corrected text will show up though and in new searches. I guess you are not the proof reading rabbit unless that was a typo too.

Oh that is a very good point! Just so you know I truly laughed out loud at your proof reading rabbit comment, that was great!
