How to change Internal name

Postby shanemckiness » Fri May 27, 2005 5:03 am

Why? I want my internal name shorter. For example: archiving was originally set for a maginot profile to archive headlines, which were producted from a different profile. The file name was generalheadlines-archives. Now I want to shorten all my address, so I changed the names in the profiles, but this only changes the 1 file that produces a link to each archive (mine archive is by month). So, i have a link to: still after changing the name (the internal name still reads generalheadlines)

I would like something like this: (aa being short for article archive)

This was in my archive style:
<a href="/articles/archives/<Field: FileName>"><Field: ArchiveDate></a><br>

As you see, FileName SHOULD be aa now, but theyre now. And I'm gusing the ArchiveDate is the -10-2004 part?

Thank for any help...

Do a full backup of your entire installation so you have a point of safe return. Then open up nsettings.cgi and change all 'generalheadlines' with 'aa' where you see it appropriate...
