Our listing on the main page is showing as :
Cincinnati, Ohio, United States
We would like it to be:
THATCamp University of Cincinnati 2016
I changed the title in our WordPress instance, but I fear I entered it wrong when creating the site. Can this be changed?January 7, 2016 at 3:04 PM #5382
I think maybe the site name needs to be changed in admin… anyone?January 8, 2016 at 3:40 AM #5384
on your side, everything’s fine, as you suggested. The homepage is automatically generated. I suppose that there is a cache issue. I’ll see this with members of the THATCamp council.

Hi Lisa and Frédéric,
I fixed this — it now says “THATCamp U Cincinnati 2016.” Let me know if that’s the correct title.
Technical explanation: the way we have the THATCamp site set up, it runs both WordPress Multisite and BuddyPress. Multisite is the functionality that allows everyone to have their own separate site on the thatcamp.org domain, while BuddyPress is organized around the concept of “groups.” Boone Gorges, our developer, made it so that BuddyPress “Groups” are mapped onto Multisite “Sites,” and it’s the BuddyPress Group names that show up in the list on the main page. That means that editing the site title after you’ve submitted the initial THATCamp Registration page (which creates the Groups) doesn’t change what’s on the home page.
Only THATCamp network administrators (i.e., the THATCamp Council) can edit Group names by going to Network Admin –> Groups.
Thanks for taking a look, Frédéric!January 8, 2016 at 12:37 PM #5390
Thanks for your assistance! Can it be University of Cincinnati instead of U of Cincinnati ? If that’s too long , maybe abbreviate to Univ.
Sorry to be a pain!!
We use WordPress Networks here as well, if you ever need another person !

No worries — done!January 8, 2016 at 1:48 PM #5392
Excellent – thanks for the fast work!December 6, 2017 at 2:02 PM #5586
I changed the THATCamp Ohio 2018 on my end to have a date of April 27, 2018, but it isn’t showing up on the THATCamp homepage. Would someone please help me update the date?December 6, 2017 at 2:05 PM #5587
Either the cache cleared or someone fixed it. Thank you!December 6, 2017 at 2:06 PM #5588
Hi Kristen — yes, I cleared the cache and it updated. Have a good THATCamp!
