At the minute our url for our club is 3839.toastmastersclubs.org/ To prospective members this is not very useful. Is there a way I can change it to www.huttvalleytoastmasters.org.nz

Thanks in advance

Natasha
3839

You could also use a website alias, such as huttvalley.toastmastersclubs.org

To do that, you just need to enter "huttvalley" in the alias box in the basic website settings, and save.

Hello there,

so a month or so later (busy times) I tried the above suggestion. I typed "huttvalley" in as the website alias and then clicked save but nothing seems to have happened...It still comes up as 3839.toastmastersclubs.org/ ? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
Natasha

When I type it into google it is still coming up as the 3839 one instead of the huttvalley address. Is there any way to alter this?
Thank you

I just clicked on your link and I can't see the option for changing the address link. I logged on but still can't see that option. Maybe I need some administrator access to do that do you think? I might need to ask our club president to sort that out?

Kia ora Natasha

Greetings from a former Hutt Valley resident.

In addition to what Brian suggests, also change the club website address in the District 72 Club Finder. New Zealanders tend to look for prospective clubs through the District website rather than TI.

Hello, so I did as Brian said and have changed the club details
reports.toastmasters.org/findaclub/zoomc....x=20&imageField.y=7

When I go onto google it is still coming up with the 3839 address? When I changed it, it did say it would take a few days to process but this was a week ago?

Thank you

Natasha:

The club is still showing as 3839.toastmastersclubs.org/ on the Toastmasters New Zealand club finder. That listing will need to be changed as well.

It can take some time before Google catches up with the changes. Some weeks is not unusual, from what I can gather.
