Dear all,
I have created one site by Liferay 6.1. Now I'd like to change the name and keep all content.
Where is that property and how could I change it.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks for your replay. But Where is the "Actions"?
I am using Liferay 6.1 GA1, I only found this list there.
Basic Information
Details
Categorization
Site URL
Site Template
Search Engine Optimization
Sitemap
Robots
Advanced
Staging
Analytics


Kind regards

That's because you're selecting "Site Settings" instead of "Sites". "Sites" is under "Portal"

Venkat,

Before reposting similar reply again, please RE-READ the initial post. He's talking about a site he's created himself.

I have created one site

Yes, I am talking about the site I have created. I have a better name so I'd like to change it.
Seems that is impossible, right?

It is possible,

Go to -> Control Panel -> "Sites"(Under Portal Section) -> Click on site name -> Details -> change site name(better name you'd like emoticon )

Please refer attached screenshot.

Thanks,
Venkat

Thanks Venkat, did you change some parameters in extra file?
It is so strange. Why I do not have that function. Even I tried the 6.1 CE GA2.
Someone else could do that?

I had the exact same proble and I found out that it can be changed in "Portal Settings".
Maybe beacause I have only one Site.

Sorry to kick a dead horse, but just a quick note regarding the underlying implementation for anyone looking at this from a programming perspective:

The name in the portal name is the "Descriptive Name" from com.liferay.portal.model.Group getDescriptiveName(). For the top level site for the portal, the name (getName() method) returns "Guest" by default (6.2 ga2). Changing the name for the portal in the UI only changes the descriptive name; it does not change the name of the portal's web site.

For other sites that you make yourself, it appears that changing the name under Sites -> (site name) -> Configuration -> Site Settings -> Details -- Name (Required) will change both the Name and DescriptiveName fields.
