In your site settings there are a few options available to provide your site identity. These include:
Simply the name of your site. This will show up in Disqus feeds, Email notifications, and your Community tab.
The starting URL of your site. Note that this is for display purposes and your site won't be bound to only this domain.
Your site's general category. Choose "Other" if none of the choices are relevant.
Usually one or two engaging sentences about your site to draw people in.
Site Image (Favicon)
Images are pulled automatically, more information below.
Note: your forum shortname cannot be changed. The shortname is not user-facing and does not need to be updated if your Website name changes
Other identity information
In addition to the above, we also pull in images and content from the articles. It's best practice to include proper Open Graph tags on your pages in order to represent your content the way you'd like to.
Favicons are automatically pulled in from the URL provided in the site identity settings, so make sure an accessible address is provided in order for us to receive it.
