I need to change the name of my site, as in: "The primary domain for Brass Ball Motorcycle Run and Benefit Concert is currently: brassballsrun.yolasite.com"...

as you can see I misspelled Ball ..it should be balls and this is not what we decided to call the event not to mention this is what gets updated to my facebook?

I need this fixed before I share this with the world....Please help!

Hello Michelle, 

I took a look at your site and it appears that you may have figured out how to fix this up? Please let me know if the problem is still outstanding?

Hello Michelle,

There's a couple of things going on here. While your index page is correct, the rest of your window title still says "Ball" not "Balls". So, let's fix that up first by doing the following:

1. On the main menu, click on Page >Page Properties.
2. Beside "Window Title", edit the text in the field box.
3. Click on "OK".
4. Preview or click on "Publish to the web" to view the changes.

In regards to Facebook, they cache the URLs on the server side once and we are not sure how often they refresh to account for changes. So, in order to pull up the latest changes, a good work around would be to change the URL to: http://brassballsrun.yolasite.com/index.php?page=new and it should pull the up your most up-to-date version.

Hello Sanja and Michelle. When I have some misspelling error or something, and the changes don't update in facebook I use the facebook linter and it works like a charm, try it.
