Is it possible to change the model header name after the link has already been distributed? I have 310 Blue Star Hwy now but decided it would be better to have it read "Restaurant-Bar-Apartment". I don't want to screw it up now that it has gone out to many people.

You can change anything on the back end and the link/model will update automatically with issues.

Go into my.matterport and click button on right that says edit. You can change it there under name. It will not screw up anything.

Hi @fotoguy -

It seems like you might be referring to the title you set inside WP3D Models. In that case, you can easily change the "Title" without any issues (within WP3D & WordPress), but if you want to also update that portion of the URL (technically the "permalink", then any previous links you've sent out stand to become dead ends (404 Error).

Some WordPress hosts (like WPEngine) have a "redirect rules" section that functions outside of WordPress to allow for the ability to create rules that re-route URLs, specifically for situations like this.

Otherwise, there are WordPress plugins that offer the similar "301 Redirect" functionality.

Here's one that has worked well for others:

A quick YouTube search revealed this (slightly old) tutorial:

Hope that helps!

I want to change this title to something different but I don't want the links the realtor already sent out to be dead. I'm thinking it will change the link name altogether.

@fotoguy - If you're just talking about the text inside the Matterport Space, no problem, change it (within your "my.matterport.com" Dashboard) however you please....that won't affect any of the "permalink" details noted before.

I was able to do it in WP3D and it did not change the link name, so all is good. I downloaded the 301 redirect just in case something changes.
