    When pasting the event registration link to social media, the webpage preview says "Test Event" Anyone know how to change this?

    Have you fully activated your website and registration from your home page?

    It sounds like your website/event is not yet live. Once it's live, the link will work!

    If your event is live, make sure you're copy the link from the right place. You need to get the link from the Marketing > Weblinks section.

    Hi Brandi, 

    Did making your event live solve the issue? You might otherwise need to take a look at some of your event setup/information fields and make sure the title is updated there. 

    Best,

    Hi Everyone! 
    Thank you for all your comments and suggestions!
    The event is/was live, and did not fix the issue. Also, I used the weblink from the Marketing > Weblinks. Neither of these worked.
    I ended up opening a case with cvent. I had to add a Share Bar Tag to the registration page, then edit the link preview from there. The share bar tag was then removed. My event link preview is no longer 'Test Event'!

    Thank you,
    Brandi

    Odd workaround. My other thought was going to be was the link specific to a reg type.

    I agree with you!!!

    I think there should be a more streamlined way to do this....

    Hi Brandi,

    I am just seeing your question now. That is so weird it was live and you were using the generated weblinks for the event. I do love your workaround idea with using the share option and taking that weblink, thank you for sharing this!

    All weblinks will work once your site is live. The other piece is making sure your site is set to Public visibility.
