Hi Everyone, While I was getting used to Yola I played around with a few site names. Since then I have settled on and purchased kokochen.com If I post a link on Facebook it is still pulling through the original site name. I've removed that name from all the page settings. Regards, Pete.

Hello Pete

I'm afraid that this is beyond Yola's control, and that you will need to wait until Facebook updates the data they stored for your website. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you at this stage, but it will eventually be updated.

Really? But the site was never posted to facebook under that name, it wasn't promoted in any way at that stage and I was using the yola url at the time.

Hello Peter

When you decided for your custom domain kokochen.com, did you change your site name and page properties immediately and re-publish your website before you posted your site to Facebook for the first time, or did you first publish your site to kokochen.com, then post it to Facebook, and a little later change site name and page properties? Facebook will always pick up the current published information about your website when you post it for the first time. If you publish changes to your site name or page properties later, Facebook will take some time until their data is updated.
