View Full Version : Removing ".smugmug" from the URL?
Mar-15-2011, 11:48 AM
Is it possible to remove this since I have my own domain? I know you can use vanity URLs, but those disappear as soon as you click on a link in the site. I feel like having that change while on the site is rather unprofessional, as I want SmugMug to be hidden from my customers until they go to order items. Do I simply need to change the links on my navbar so they don't have the ".smugmug" in it? Will that work? Thanks so much guys.

If you have a power or pro account, you can configure your own domain for Smugmug: http://www.smugmug.com/help/professional-accounts.

I did that but it seems that only my homepage follows that url...That's because your navbar is full of lines to asphotoco.smugmug.com. You specify that's where the user should be taken when they click on something in your navbar so that's where the browser goes. If you change those links to your custom domain, then it will stay on your custom domain. Even better is to make them domain-relative links. Everywhere in your navbar where is starts out with:
change it to just:
This will stay on whatever domain the user entered on.
You should remove all references to http://asphotoco.smugmug.com/ from anywhere in your customization.
