How to modify SharePoint list web address RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a custom list, and later I changed the title, but its web address is not udpated accordingly. In SharePoint Designer 2007, I used to be able to sync the title and web address by renaming file name. However, I can't find a way to do likewise in SharePoint Designer 2010. Does anyone know how to do this in 2010 environment?

    Thanks & regards

  • I struggled with this as well...  I finally found the answer to changing a list web address/url in SharePoint 2010 using SharePoint Designer 2010. 

    It ends up to be just a subtle difference in site presentation within the designer.

    Changing a list web address/url in SharePoint 2010 using SharePoint Designer 2010

    1: You must be a site collection admin.

    2: Open the site in SharePoint Designer 2010

    3: Locate "All Files" at the bottom of the left hand navigation pane, which will open the main "All Files" pane on the right.
    ** "All Files" is not visible if your do not have the appropriate permissions.**

    4: click (once) on "Lists" in the main "All Files" pane.

    5: Right Click on the list that you want to change the URL/Web Address for and choose "Rename"

     

    That's it.  It also works for document libraries (in the root of "All Files", of course ;) )

    Hey what if all our subsites were migrated to new server and we cannot get to them to change the URLs?  This was bad planning (or no planning at all) but it was done before I came on board.
