« on: April 06, 2008, 01:51:42 PM »
Hi folks!
Just started a forum,  http://geeksrus.smfforfree3.com [nofollow]  My partner and I want to change the name from 'geeksrus' to something else.  Is this possible, and how is it done?
Thanks!

If you want to change the link to the forum, you'll have to do a new one

You need to contact http://www.smfforfree.com/ Although on their forum another poster with the same question was told no they can not change the url. You only have 3 members, just sign up for another free account.

Thank You, I thought about signing up for new account, but then we would have to configure things all over again.
Thanks again!
