Solved How to change my site's address?

Post by !nspired on July 31st 2011, 4:00 am

Is there a way to change what people type in when they want to get to my site?

For example: www.bluebots.forumotion.com

to

www.greenbots.forumotion.com

Is there a way to make a change like that?

That doesn't work. I need to change the url of the site, not the name.

When you change it there, it also changes the site address in your browser tab.

But...it didn't.
It changes the title that comes up on the tab, but not in the bar.

Like the url bar.
I want to change the name that people initially type to get to the site.

It should work. Did you press the Save button?

Yes, I pressed the save button.
But it still has the old address as what you type. >_>

Wait I changed it using a different method than what you showed me, because I couldn't find a title spot in General. I changed the search engines name.

Quick update of your forum name : [ ].aforumfree.com

That is how my page looks to change the forum's address.

I'm sorry for being so difficult. >_>

I don't see that option.
Do you have to be logged in as the founder to do that, maybe?

I believe only the founder can change this information.

Ahh, okay, then there lies the problem.
Our founder left and didn't know how to change me over.
Darn.
