Domain Name and Facebook Share

Post by dedwward11 on July 30th 2012, 9:45 am

Hi, I have just recently created a new forum. I purchased and external domain name from GoDaddy, and it is directing to the forum, as needed. My question is about the facebook share button. A member shared a post onto their fb page, and the website link that appeared in their post for the comment was the forumotion web address, not my purchased domain address.

Currently showing up as www.weatherchatroom.forumotion.com

Want it show as www.thunderboltweather.com

Thank you for any help you can provide with the correct way to configure this in the AP.

I am not sure what all you need, but here is my facebook page. A member shared a topic with facebook, and this is how the site address appears....

weatherchatroom.forumotion.com as can be seen in the link.......I would like it to have the link thunderboltweather.com

What you've purchased isn't a real domain name.

It's an iFrame, an URL redirecting on the real URL of your forum.

So, there's no way to change this I guess. Smile

Thanks !

Wait.......

I am sorry, but I do not understand that......I purchased a domain name from GoDaddy. It is www.thunderboltweather.com. When A person types this into their browser, it takes them to my forum. It is an official domain name.

My problem is when someone shares a topic on Facebook, it shows the forumotion web address www.weatherchatroom.forumotion.com.
