Recommendation for naming pages or files

Friday, Jul. 26, 2013

When creating a page or uploading a file in Commonspot, you're asked to fill the "Name" field. This field is what browsers will see in the page or file URL, not the title of the page. It is recommended to use all lower-case, standard alpha-numeric (a-z, 0-9) characters for the "Name" field, without blank spaces. The dash and underscore characters can be used, but avoid other punctuation such as apostrophe, period, or quote marks, or characters from other language sets.
