How do I change the title on my Blog

Travel Forums System Talk How do I change the title on my Blog

I will try to ask this without using the words "thingy" or "what-ja-call-it"

Is this possible? I have tried to start my Blog already, under the working title "Clarabelle in Eastern Europe" Its a rubbish name, and as you know I've been asking on Off Topic for ideas and I thought I'd be able to change it. I can change the titles of each entry, but can't for the life of me work out how to change the overall title.

Is it possible?

I was also thinking, maybe I will give it a more general title so I can enter any future trips I do (prob just Rotherham, Chesterfield etc!) all under the same thingy. Doh!

Small Girl Big Backpack?

Just figured it out! I read TommyTato's thread from a few weeks back. It is a bit difficult to figure it out though!

Erm, actually, it isn't letting me because it says that domain is take or somesuch message.

Do I have to change my domain name to do it?

Hi Clarabell,

You should be able to do this through your blog management area (note that you can't have actually deleted the blog to do this yourself!)... on checking your profile I can't see a link to a blog so I guess you have deleted the blog? :)

Let me know if that's the case, and I'll reactivate it for you (the deleted blogs can't be 'resurrected' under the same domainname to make sure that deleted blogs don't get started up by someone else...


ps. after it's activated, you can change the title in that blogs management area under the 'Settings' tab. There's a sub tab there with 'Core Information' (yes, it could be easier to find, I know!!!) :) Maybe a tutorial would be good!

But I can't have deleted my blog, as I have just gone into it, edited it, and now published it, which was the reason you couldn't see it. You should be able to see it now.]

But it still won't let me change the title. What am I doing wrong?!

Hmm, good question, thought that would have been it! PM me what you are trying to get the title to be (maybe someone else is using it and the system -incorrectly- isn't letting you change to that same title). Have you tried changing it after you put it live (just checking - I've never seen this before so have to ask all the questions!)?
