Solved Super QUICK help on forum domain change

Post by tylercole on December 22nd 2016, 9:12 pm

Hello, I have had my forum going for about a month now, and since it has grown some I decided to change the url to something better. I did it, and it said it is waiting on confirmation or something like that. However reading the link provided below, it makes it sound like I am going to lose all of my forum, posts, info, changes, and all that? Or is it saying since the forums link is changed I will have to re advertise it and google bots will have to find it again? Also since I changed it, should i wait until the address does change itself to mass message my members for security reasons?

You do not loose anything on your forum, except the links on your forum will need to be changed to the new links. I mean in coding. It basically means that all your links in search engines, links on other forums, etc. will be to the old link.

Ok, but all previous posts I made in the forum will automatically have the new URL in them? Also will the link automatically pop up once it s approved?

Are you just changing the link or getting a domain name?

I changed the link from insectsandentomologyforumotion.com, to a (my new name).com without the forumotion part in it. (Which I am apparently not supposed to show until it has been validated?)

So you are using a domain name?

Correct. If a domain name is completely coming up with your own url, which is what I did.

You will need to have search engines index your forum again to get the new link.
