This past weekend, while attending WAM2010, I noticed a couple of projects where Sitefinity was using an intimidating project name. These project names are visible on Sitefinity’s login screen, as well as inside Sitefinity’s Admin.
When the project name is too long, it can cause minor display problems:
Project Names are configured in the web.config file (this file sits in the root of your Sitefinity web site).
1. Use Visual Studio (or another text editor) to open the ~/web.config file
2. Search for the “<cms” section in this file
3. Modify the projectName property of this section. If missing, the projectName property can be added.
<cms defaultProvider="Sitefinity" pageExtension=".aspx" siteTemplate="" disabled="false" pageEditorUIMode="Overlay" projectName="SitefinityWatch">
4. Now refresh Sitefinity’s Admin in your browser.
