Instructions & Tips

System Name is the name of the file or Asset in the CMS. It also appears in the web address line in a browser window. The System Name is automatically created from the template or type of Asset selected to build.

System Name

To add or change the System Name:

  • (New)  Main Menu Bar > New >> (Select Asset)

  • Enter System Name.

  • (Existing) Asset Action Toolbar > Edit >> System

  • Enter System Name.

Keep the following in mind when creating a System Name:

  • Use lowercase text.

  • Do not use spaces, punctuation or special characters, such as:
    ? / > < , " ' ; : [ ] { } | \ ) ( * & ^ % $ # @ ! ~ ` + =.

  • Avoid long names. One word keywords are best. Be as descriptive as possible.

  • If two words are required, use a dash in between (e.g. corporate-relations).

  • If this is the first page in the site or folder, use the name Default.
