I changed a street name yet when I go to the website and refresh I see only part of the street was renamed.

I tried several times and am unable to rename the entire road. What am I doing wrong?

It would help us to help you if you included the "permalink" (the link at the bottom right-hand corner of the map) in your question. Then we'd know which street wasn't appearing properly.

You should wait at least a couple of hours for the database to refresh itself and update it's contents.

See this previous question and detailed answer.

And in addition to JCsM's answer also double check that you have renamed all segments of the street.

On investigation the street in question appears to be this one, it doesn't have multiple segments and just hadn't been rendered yet. I dirtied one of the tiles and that tile now displays OK.
