Post by Khaoz on July 24th 2013, 10:24 am

Image says it all basically:
How do i change what the page is about to change what the top nav "share:...... facebook... twit... etc" says when you click them. I have also changed the cat in which the forum is inlisted in aswell.

I am not sure what it is your asking. can you provide a link to the problems and explain as much as you can is as much details as possible. thanx Smile
is that on your forum or facebook?

oh may be this is what you mean.

try going to

Admin panel>General>Forum promotions>Search engines

May be that's what you mean there in your forums title and site description?
If not please explain more.

Oh go to

Admin panel>general>forum>configuration

right at the top you will see site name and then description. you have to change the description there to.
And give it at least 24 hours to take affect. it will not go through right away.

Well it has to display something. if you have nothing in your search engine description or your forums main description then technically it should just display your forums link.
However your original information you added to the forum during the forums creation is still in forumotions data base so if it is not changing then that is why it continues to show and not sure if anything can be done if this is the case.

i have to check my test forum and see if there is any change yet. i would think it would take time to take affect, bots have to gather and register new information's it gathers??? not sure?

info added

yeah i have no change since i removed everything from my test forum yesterday.
i am going to see if i add html title tags if that changes anything. but looks like it is coming up with the original name and description i used when the forum was created

but when you make a portal it comes up differently when you click the share on facebook button. like it would show

via clicking share through the portal page. hm. i dont have the option of creating a new board now. as i just spent creds to remove adds/copywrites and soon a new url once the old one deletes and gets added a week to a month later as slow as the system booking is. .-.
