General Support: Website url

Posted by Theo on

I am registering with Voice for the first time and the form is not accepting my website url, which follows the protocol ‘https://e-voice.org.uk/myarea’ where ‘myarea’ is replaced with my organisation name ‘/*****’ in lower case following the forward slash, no numbers or punctuation. This section is highlighted as problematic but I can’t see why after trying various spellings.

Hello Theo

On the application form for a site, if you are including the '/' at the being, then I think that is the problem.  Just the name you want following the final '/' in the URL, so start with a lower-case letter.

Hi Theo, I'm having the same problem. Newly registered but when I fill in the create web site it keeps saying I have made an error but I can't see anything it has highlighted. Tried loads of things but gave up in the end.

I think you got this sorted in the end?

For future reference if other people are reading this, regarding the Website Address bit.

  • You can leave this field blank, and the site will create a URL for you based on the organisation's name. e.g., if you enter "My Lovely Website" as the name then you'd get the URL https://e-voice.org.uk/my-lovely-website
  • If you want something different then enter this on the form, but without the domain name part. So, if you wanted the URL "https://e-voice.org.uk/mysite" then you would just put "mysite" in here.
  • In any case, whatever URL you choose, you can later register your own domain name if you wish to, and associate this with your e-voice site. So you could have www.my-lovely-website.com if you wished! There are instructions for how to do this in the documentation.

I hope this helps!
