    i can’t change the name of a blog in my multisite install. i’ve tried changing it both in the network admin panel and the individual site’s admin. any ideas?

    What are you trying to name it to?

    trying to remove “demo” from the existing name.

    And that would make the name… ?

    Some names are restricted, you see.

    ah, it’s ccbc connection demo » ccbc connection.

    as far as i know, that shouldn’t be restricted.

    Shouldn’t. But you know if I DON’T ask, I find out you were trying to name it to ‘blog’ which won’t work.

    You’re just changing the blog NAME? Not the URL? So you go to domain.com/wp-admin/options-general.php and change the title?

    correct, or the multisite network admin’s site options.

    I can name and rename the blogname on my site. At a guess, do you have any plugins that might prohibit changes like that?

    no, nothing’s active except for akismet.

    Nothing network wide?

    yeah, nothing’s active network-wide.

    Nothing in mu-plugins either?

    no, nothing in multisite or anything like that. i really don’t get it. could it be a server issue? for some reason, it won’t let wp rewrite something?

    The only way WP wouldn’t let you rewrite it is if a plugin was overriding, or you didn’t have enough permissions to edit it in the DB. In the case of the latter, you would get an error message. Which you’re not (or I presume you’d have mentioned that).

    Can you change other site’s titles?

    i can change every other site’s titles, info, etc.

    update: ok, it’s a weird problem with the theme (news24 from cosmothemes). if i change to a different template from the network admin, it’s fine, and i can change everything up. for some reason, this theme won’t let me make that change.

    update edit: it also reverts the site name if i change the title using another theme, then switch back to news24.

    Wow. WOW. Okay. That’s … Um. At best, I would guess that the theme has somethign in the functions.php that’s causing it to override that field. Is there a setting in that particular theme’s theme options for site name?
