Rename a study a Pavlovia

Is there a way to rename the study on Pavlovia? Or is deleting and re-uploading my study the only option? Thanks!

Using you have an advanced interface for your projects that allows various customizations and I think that allows you to change the name. BUT there are various problems with that because the name defines the URL that the project lives at too. So, for instance, when you’ve changed the name your local copy of the repository will probably now point to the wrong location. That can be fixed with some git skills, but I don’t know what other knock-on effects there will be.
Basically, I think it would be safer to create a new project with the corrected name.

I tested this and it did not work - as anticipated, the URL does not get updated, nor other attributes of the project (name, description, etc). In my case, I was hoping to fork an existing project, but when forking in GitLab, you are stuck with the parent project’s name, as it can only be renamed after the project is created, which breaks Pavlovia.

I was wondering this too, and now won’t spend any time trying to rename projects which I’ve forked and then heavily revised.
