On a WordPress MultiSite: When we create a site, we are restricted into sing ONLY latin alphabets(a-z) in lower case and the so-called hindu-arabic numerals(1-9).
However, on the network admin dashboard > sites > edit site; we can edit the name of a subsite(as well as its url).
I found this by accident and I have been meaning to use it.
However, a WordPress MU guide book warns:
"it is possible to change a site name..., doing so on an existing site can have a dramatic outcome if you
change the length of the site name".
Unfortunately, it doesn't explain what the dramatic outcome is and whether it affects a new WPMU site (with no posts) or not.
Any advise please?
